The holidays can be a time of reflection and self-searching. Though I don’t believe we should wait until the New Year to make positive changes, many of us use the closing of one year and the beginning of another as an opportunity to set resolutions and self-improvement goals.
Becoming healthier in mind, body and spirit is a great place to start. Many of us take on the lofty and generalized resolutions of exercising, losing weight, or even being more charitable. The broadness of these goals can sometimes be paralyzing and therefore unachievable.
Why not try one small thing at a time… something you can do regularly and incorporate into your everyday routine. Instead of tasking yourself with exercising, try committing to a ten minute walk each day. If you want to become a kinder person, try committing to doing one good deed each day, no matter how small.
Make it personable and keep it manageable. As long as your feet are pointed in the right direction, all you need to do is keep walking. One small step at a time.
