You need to make a personal plan to get you from where you are now to where you want to be..
Planning a New Start
Find a time when you can be on your own and uninterrupted for at least an hour. Equip yourself with pen and paper and carry out the self-
Think about and examine your present lifestyle. What is wrong in it and/or what thing(s) are distressing you? What do you think is causing these problems? Do you have any control over these events? Are there any steps you could take now to make things better?
Given your present situation, what things in life do you really want? What could you do to make your life happier? Is your style of thinking a possible cause for how you are feeling? If you changed your thought patterns would life be any better?

Attempt to prioritise the life changes you would like to make. Place at the top of your list those changes which, if achieved, would make you feel happiest and most satisfied. Note also the level of difficulty you might experience in working to bring them about.
Now choose the two or three of these life changes that you are prepared to work at right away. Do not choose more than three and it’s fine if you limit yourself to one or two. Avoid choosing the most difficult areas for change at this time.
These chosen life changes [one, two or three of them] will become your life goals for the foreseeable future. Give yourself a time frame for achieving each of them -
Once you have reached the position where you have chosen one,two or maybe three life changes to become your goals, broken these goals into weekly targets and settled on a time frame for completion, you have taken a major step to transforming your lifestyle.
The ultimate success of what you have done will now be measured by your determination and motivation to keep going until you achieve your selected goal(s)
Remember the slogan:
if you take two steps forward and one backwards, but keep going, you are making real progress!

full details of your chosen goals, the weekly targets you have created
and the time frame you have selected.
This will help you immensely when you come to monitor and review your progress.
Using a small private notebook for this might be a good idea.
