Forget Deprivation - Small Steps to Positive Change in 2017

Inspired by Dawn shares article on positive changes for health & wellness in 2017

There's still a few days left in January. The month that we often commit to unreasonable resolutions to eat better and / or lose weight and put unrealistic pressure on ourselves to stick with them. So what it you haven't quite stuck with the program? How can you still use this month of revitalization to your benefit? The key is to start with small changes.

This Huffington Post article stood out because it doesn't advise starving yourself to reset yourself in the new year. Instead it focuses on positive ways to help you reset your mind, body, health and wellness. It's about giving yourself permission to create positive change in your life without deprivation. Here's just a few of our favorites...

If you want to reset your:

  • Schedule - Make time for the “fun stuff” -- It's just as important as all the other stuff!
  • Creativity - Try a dream journal --Make it easy so it's not a chore but truly a release
  • Imagination - Give up on that book you’ve been lumbering through -- It's okay. Give yourself permission!
  • Energy - Go to sleep earlier -- Take care of you and your health
  • Diet - Focus on adding one thing in -- Love this! It doesn't have to be about deprivation
