Small Steps

I have found that setting yourself some simple, easy goals, and by taking 'small steps' it can really make some big and significant changes to your lifestyle. By taking just one small thing at a time and introducing this for 30 days it should now become a habit. Then you can go and introduce another small step and so on.

Focus

Don't think about what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours ahead of you and do whatever you can to get closer to where you want to be. It's better to make small steps in the right direction than make a great leap forward only to stumble backwards.

Take a look

Here are a few ideas on how you can make some small steps on a regular basis that could change your whole outlook on life. Click on the colour tab in top left corner of the image.

Drinking at least 2 litres of water a day is great goal to aim for. As well as increasing energy and improving your digestion, drinking water can help rid your body of toxins, prevent constipation, fight infection, help with blood pressure and aid weight loss.
Drink More Water
Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle and can benefit your heart and mind. If you don’t get the recommended 7-9 hours sleep each night, you could try going to bed about 10 minutes earlier each night to see what a difference it can make. Over a week this is over an hour extra sleep time.
Get More Sleep
Increase your fruit & vegetable intake! We all know that the 5 a day thing isn’t working anymore and that it’s now highly recommended that we get 7-9 portions a day. Fruit and vegetables contain so much goodness for our bodies to help it work the way it should.
More Fruit & Veg
Each day try to take 15-30 minutes out of your regular routine to take some time for yourself. Read a book, meditate, call a friend. Do something just for you. It can be anything that takes you away from the norm and something you enjoy. Remember to leave work at work.
Take Time Out
Why not take the stairs instead of the lift, walk every isle in the supermarket instead of just the ones you know you need. Park your car a little further from the office or on the other side of the supermarket car park. All of these little things add up to extra steps.
Move More
Try swapping some of the regular foods for healthier options. Still have the burger and chips but drop the bun and have baked sweet potato chips. Swap your white potatoes for carrot and swede mash or cauliflower mash, delicious on your shepards pie!
Healthier Options
Rid yourself of negativity! People surrounded by negativity are more stressed and get sick more often. Surround yourself with positive people. Find the positive in negative situations, help other people that need it, and take time to laugh more, even at yourself!
Be More Positive
Doing something nice for someone else can not only make you feel good but research has shown it can also help with things like cholesterol and inflammation. It's nice to be nice!
Be Kind
Don't keep checking the scales! The fluctuation due to water and undigested meals can be misleading and put you right off track! More than once a week is a no, no! Remember that fat loss is better than weight loss!
Step Away
Cravings

When we get an intense craving for something (usually treats!) it often means we are dehydrated. Thirst is usually the last indicator of dehydration! Try substituting as this chart shows for a healthier option!
