Making positive changes in your life can be so daunting that you may decide to do nothing. Losing 40 pounds, running five miles, and saving a large portion of your pay may seem impossible. The result is often procrastination. What, however, if tasks were simple and easy to achieve? They can be, if done intentionally and consistently. Here are five teeny, tiny daily steps you can try to make your life and the lives of those around you just a bit better.
It is amazing how being grateful can reduce stress and help your attitude. If you find yourself being negative or feel stress building, be grateful for the good things in your life.
If losing forty or fifty pounds seems insurmountable, just make a commitment to move more each day. Get up from that chair more often. Park further from the front door of the grocery store. Take a walk. You don’t have to do jumping jacks or pushups. Just. Move. More.
Thank or Compliment Someone
Be intentional and sincere. A thoughtful compliment can make someone’s day while adding to your own.
Create an Easy Task List
Sure, there are a lot of things to do, but there are likely things you’ve been putting off for weeks, or maybe months. Create a list of these simple tasks and just make a commitment to accomplish one each day. Gotta get a haircut? Want to cancel that streaming service? Should you call your brother? Put it down and get it done.
Do a Less/More Swap
Maybe you should watch streaming less and listen to your favorite music more. Perhaps you should eat less fast food and cook more. You could be less negative and take a more positive approach. This is a double-barrel approach to improving your daily life, because you are not just limiting poor behavior, you are replacing it with life-enhancing behavior.
