Welcome to Small Steps to Healthy Habits!
If you’re like me, you know you should do things like exercise, eat well, use a budget, be kind, etc. But how often do we actually do the things we should do? Time, busyness, obligations, and who-knows-what often derail our good intentions.
That’s why we’re starting with small steps. Little things can add up to big changes over time. And small steps are easier to maintain than big, sweeping changes such as, “I’m going to lose 30 pounds this month, exercise an hour every day, eat 1000 calories, save $1000, and smile at everyone I meet!” While that would great, it probably wouldn’t actually happen to me!
But…I CAN make small steps towards my goals. I CAN exercise for 10 minutes. I CAN choose to eat more vegetables. I CAN choose to reward myself by reading a book from the library rather than spending $20 on Amazon. Look at what YOU CAN do.
When I pull up a map on my phone, I always see a cute little dot that shows me where I am at the moment. That’s really helpful when I’m trying to find a new place or need directions. If I don’t know where I am, I can’t really figure out where I’m going. That works with changes too. I have a survey to help you see where you are right now. It might be a little long but it will give you a good overview of where you are on your map. Then, you’ll set up a trip of small steps to take you where you want to go. I’ll help you along your journey with emails, social media, this blog, and some monthly Fun Fridays where you’ll meet others on the journey and have fun learning!
