The Little Things

If you have not yet had the opportunity to read “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson I would highly recommend doing so. The book explains the importance of consistently making (and sticking to) small positive changes and that those small changes will compound into big results. For example, reading 10 pages everyday of an inspiring book or meditating for 10 minutes everyday are both daily habits that will lead to big changes over time.

The one daily habit that I found significantly helped me over the past few months has been daily journalling. I did not realize how much was going on in my own head until I started to write it down. I write down 3 things that I must do by the end of the day (like organize my closet or do 30 minutes of yoga). By writing things down you feel more obligated to do it – kinda like making a promise to yourself. Moreover, journalling has helped me get rid of any negative thoughts I have. If i’m having a bad day or upset about something then I write it down and after I write that negative thought, I make sure to then write 5 positive thoughts. I write down what I am thankful for and recently I started to write what a successful future looks like to me and things I can do to get there.

Life can get very overwhelming and stressful at time and I encourage everyone to partake in daily small positive habits that will make you feel more productive and less stressed. It really is the little things that make the biggest difference.

Thank you for reading and have I hope you have a productive day.
