It is enough with one small step
One small step is always better than no step at all for your health.
Create a list of all the changes you would like to make
Create a list of all the strengths you have
Choose the change you should take on
Now look at the changes you wrote down and what strengths you have and ask yourself what change you would most easily cope with those strengths. Choose the change and start working on it.
Choose the simplest change to succeed!
To incorporate a sense of success so that you can later use just that feeling to choose the next change and the next change and the next change.
The fact that you work with existing strengths also makes them even better and most likely other qualities will be involved in that development.
How long should I give the change?
Depends a bit on, I am of the opinion that you should be patient and let the change take time. One suggestion is to give it a month and think about how it goes and if it feels more pressing and stressful than pleasurable, so I think you should think about whether you can get support to move on.
Then you start over and create a new list of changes, a new list of strengths and then you make a new choice.
Remember to celebrate your success, be nice with yourself and perhaps a personal treat would be nice?
Make a small change where you use your strengths, you will manage it quite gallantly and if you need pepper on the road, you can always click the button just below. If you have pepper for others, feel free to share it as a comment even a little further down.
