At the beginning of the year I want to implement so many changes into my life. Changes in amount of exercise, amount of sugar ingested, amount I'm saving, amount of time in front of a screen, on and on.
By February this striving to "be better" has worn me out and I want to leave all those changes in the dirt and return to my previous behaviors. Instead I think I can make tiny changes and stay the course. I have noticed that if I view changes as self care I am more likely to stick with them. It feels kinder to care for myself rather than change myself.
Tiny acts of self care:
* going to acupuncture once a week
* aiming for 7 hours of sleep each night
* listening to classical music at work
* drinking green smoothies several times a week
