Small changes are often more effective than big changes. WHY? Big changes require us to make a big effort. Anything that is a big effort is hard to keep going. If we make a big effort to do something and it doesn’t work, then we will feel like a big failure.
So if we make small changes that don’t take much effort and find that those small changes are helpful then we will feel good about doing those things again and again.
A very simple change to make is to drive home after work in bare feet. When we take our shoes or boots off it often feels good. Doing this before we drive home means that our body and our brain are starting to unwind and (best of all) we will arrive home more relaxed.
Remember … simple changes are often more effective than big changes.
