We all want to feel happy, balanced and settled don't we?
I know that's what I need in my life and I've realised it's the smallest of changes that make the biggest of difference.
I know a lot of us can sometimes think we can go from 0 to 100 with the click of our fingers but change, lasting change takes time and commitment.
That's why I'm committed to the long run and not the sprint. The hard truth is there's no quick fix..... no pill that will give you the 6 pack in a month and certainly no Jedi mind trick to stop all those unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviours over night.
Throw Everything You Have At It
However..... the littlest changes can make the biggest of changes when you’re willing to throw everything at it.
What we all need is proven steps we can do day by day that might seem small on their own but over time will work wonders for your mental wellness.
Going for the small wins on a daily basis will not only give you the motivation you need to make lasting change but give you the confidence to work on the bigger problems in your life.
Below is a list of the top 20 tips I think that if done bit by bit on a daily basis will make the biggest impact on your life over time. So Let's talk about them.....
