A deer in headlights. Often, we find ourselves frozen when contemplating life changes. Even the word change can trigger anxiety producing hormones. We are programmed to rest in the status quo. Change sounds overwhelming, daunting and maybe even dangerous. So, we freeze, not knowing where to start. But change doesn't have to happen all at once. In fact, research has shown it can take at least two months for any particular behavior to become a habit. Today, consider a change that you've been wanting to make and take just one step towards it. Maybe it's swapping out chips for fruit if you're wanting to eat a healthier diet. Perhaps, it's a 10 minute walk around the block which can build up to 30 minutes over time. It can be as simple as replacing negative self-talk with affirmations just once a day in the morning. Share your action step in the comments.
