 10 Small Steps to Get Motivated and Get Moving Into a New Lifestyle

10 small steps you can take today to help you get moti­vated and get mov­ing into your new awe­some lifestyle.

One of the biggest chal­lenges we face when we attempt to make big lifestyle changes is that the gap between where we are right now and where we want to be can be huge! The big­ger liv @ mb showflat, the gap, the more change that needs to be made, the more likely it is that we will stum­ble and become discouraged.

Or, in our rush to get to where we want to be, we try to do too much and get bogged down or over­whelmed. When we are already feel­ing anx­ious or frus­trated or stressed, this can leave us feel­ing self-critical and reluc­tant to move forward.

Believe it or not, the best way to suc­cess­fully accom­plish large trans­for­ma­tions in your life is through very small tur­tle steps.

I have pulled together 10 small tur­tle steps that any­one can start doing right now, today. These steps are easy to do, rel­a­tively quick to com­plete, and can be highly motivating.

So 10 small steps you can take today to start build­ing your best, most awe­some life are:

1) Do one thing dif­fer­ently. Take one task that you nor­mally do on a day to day basis but do it dif­fer­ently. If you drive to work via the same route every day, try a dif­fer­ent route. If you nor­mally shop in the same gro­cery store or cloth­ing store, try shop­ping in one you have never been in before, maybe even in a part of town you have never been to before.

2) Do one small thing that makes you feel good. Eat some­thing rich and gooey, buy your­self a bunch of flow­ers, lis­ten to your favorite song, take a 10 minute nap… whatever it is, find some­thing that makes you feel good and do it for yourself.

3) Change one thing in your envi­ron­ment. Paint a room, declut­ter a room, clean out a closet, rearrange the fur­ni­ture in a room, buy a new lamp, plant a new flower, bush, or tree in your garden… something that cre­ates an actual change in your environment.

4) Cre­ate a vision board or a vision jour­nal. Cap­ture images in words or pic­tures of what you day­dream about or of how you want your envi­ron­ment to look like, feel like, sound like, be like.

5) Com­mit an act of cre­ativ­ity. Begin writ­ing in a jour­nal, cre­ate a blog, take some pho­tographs, draw a pic­ture, bake a cake… Often when we feel stressed and frus­trated we can lose touch with our cre­ativ­ity. When we lose touch with our cre­ativ­ity, we can find it very chal­leng­ing to think of what we want to do next, or to gen­er­ate ideas on what skills and focus we want to build a lifestyle career on.

6) Cre­ate a pos­i­tive morn­ing rou­tine. Start­ing your day by repeat­ing moti­va­tional affir­ma­tions, or writ­ing in a great­i­tude jour­nal, or read­ing a few moti­va­tional quotes, or lis­ten­ing to uplift­ing music, or med­i­tat­ing, or exer­cis­ing… can set you up to have a phe­nom­e­nal day.
