Tiny Changes Often Yield the Greatest Results
Many people forgo making New Year’s resolutions for themselves because they know they’ll break them right away. Change is something that many people fear but it is inevitable. Nothing in this life is static because even our needs as human beings change as we age, have our own families, and make career moves that satisfy our material needs.
Breaking down large goals into smaller, more manageable tasks helps yield greater results overall. That’s why you shouldn’t lose sight of your dreams just because you did something that stalled your progress or made it difficult to continue to follow-through with your big picture idea. Every day presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself so don’t be afraid of starting over as many times as you need to in order to make things happen.
There are many areas of your life that can be changed over time. For the sake of simplicity, we’ve broken it down into three areas of emphasis. They are At Home, At Work, and In Your Community.
Change starts with you and the environment you live in. There are many simple ways to make your home life reflect your values and interests. If you’re wanting to get into better shape physically and find it hard to fit workout time into your schedule, there are things you can do to prepare your home so it helps you attain your physical fitness goals successfully.
Here are some of the things you can do to improve the space in which you live:
- Get rid of what no longer serves you. Donate the contents of your home to a charity in need.
- Buy a pitcher with built-in filter. That way, you can give bottled water the boot. You’ll still drink clear, purified water but from the tap.
- Set up a home gym. On days where you don’t feel like exercising, you can still get in a few minutes of physical activity. You won’t need to leave home to workout.
This short list makes a big impact on the environment you live in. Now, let’s talk about changing things up in the workplace.
Another place you spend a great deal of time each day is at work. Rather than see it as a source of stress in your life, why not make some changes to improve your working conditions? Getting your boss and co-workers onboard with your ideas makes implementing them easier because everyone is in agreement that change is necessary.
A few ideas to consider include holding walking meetings that encourage movement as well as the sharing of ideas, healthier lunch and snack options, access to a water fountain or water cooler where reusable bottles can be refilled, a workplace wellness program that promotes good health and daily exercise, and stress-relieving options that emphasize mental health.
In Your Community
The city or town you live in benefits from your health and happiness. After all, there are many ways you contribute from supporting the economy by shopping locally to volunteering your time to worthy causes needing your help. By focusing on the small things you can do instead of worrying about how grand of problem something is, you’re able to continue to chip away at an issue slowly rather than ignore it entirely.
Be Persistent in Reaching Your Goals
Continuous action gets other people to take notice. They’re more likely to pitch in, too, to make sure that you see your goal through to completion. The collective efforts of multiple people expedite change!
