Helping you live your best life.

"Big doors swing on little hinges."

W. Clement Stone

You’ve got goals and dreams of what changes you would like to see in your life. And in today’s crazy world, the idea of overhauling your daily routine can seem overwhelming. 

What if I told you that the key to a happier, more fulfilling life could lie in a single, small habit change? 

It might sound too simple to be true, but the profound impact of tweaking just one small aspect of your routine can be incredibly transformative. 

Small habits are the building blocks of our daily lives. They shape our routines and influence our mindset. And if you were to target just one small habit change, it would create a ripple effect that extends to other areas of your life! 

For example, if you start a 5-minute morning meditation practice, you will likely discover you become more mindful in other areas. You may also be more patient with your kids, coworkers, or even people that you may find yourself annoyed with. 

Or, if you were to start a morning stretching routine, before long, you would notice how flexible you’ve become and how your balance has improved!

Choosing the Right Habit to Change is Crucial

I recommend that you take a few minutes to reflect on your life and pinpoint an area that, if it were improved, would have a cascading effect on your overall well-being. 

It might be related to health, productivity, relationships, and personal or professional development. Once identified, focus your effort on cultivating new, positive behaviour around that. 

 

The beauty of a small habit change is that it’s manageable and sustainable. 

Rather than trying some big, drastic overhaul, start with a minor adjustment that aligns with your goal.

Say you wanted to read more. Instead of blocking out an hour a day or planning to read a particular book within a week, just commit to 10 minutes a day. Or 10 pages. 

As the habit works itself into your daily life, you may find yourself with some more time that you can commit to it. The approach of making the small change of 10 minutes or 10 pages a day will ensure that the change in integrated into your life seamlessly.  

Consistency is the magic ingredient in habit formation. 

You need to commit to your small change daily, which will reinforce it until it becomes second nature. Over time, the neural pathways in your brain are going to be associated with your new habit and it will just be a natural part of your routine. 

The more consistent you are, the more profound and lasting the positive impact on your life. 

In order to stay motivated, it’s essential to track your progress. Whether through a journal, app or marking days on a calendar, you must document your progression. Celebrate your small victories, as they signify your commitment to this new way of life. By acknowledging your achievements, you will reinforce the positive changes which will keep you moving forward with more ease! 

Remember that motivation alone isn’t going to keep you moving forward. Motivation is fleeting, so stay disciplined and know that YOU CAN DO THIS! 

Identifying the right habit you want to change is key

Clear your thoughts. Then ask yourself,
"If I could improve ONE thing in my life it would be..."
