Life Pie Activity

LIFE PIE: Draw a circle. Divide it into six pieces of a pie. Label with the following:

  • Spirituality
  • Health/Exercise
  • Adventure/Play
  • Work
  • Friends
  • Family

Place a dot in each slice at the degree to which you are fulfilled in that area.(other rim indicates great; inner circle, not so great). Connect the dots. This will show you where you are lopsided.

As you begin the course, it is not uncommon for your life pie to look like an irregular hexagon. As recovery progresses, your irregular shaped pie may began to look fuller. Working with this tool, you will notice that there are areas of your life that feel impoverished and on which you spend little or no time.

List three ways to make your circle less lopsided.
