When I want to make changes in my life, I often get overly ambitious. Something motivates me to make a change and suddenly I have ten more things I want to do daily.
For example, eating healthier is a common goal. I make a list of what eating healthier looks like on a daily basis. Drink more water, eat three or four servings of vegetables, take a multi-vitamin. I get overwhelmed because I try to change too many things at once.
When I can’t do everything, every single day, I usually quit. It feels discouraging.
I find it is best to change one small thing at a time. Even a small change, done every day, can have a big impact on your life.
Choose one small thing to change today and do it everyday.
