Small Steps and Daily Rituals

The best things come from small changes and the daily rituals we practice over and over again.

How do you want to feel in your home this year?

How do you want to feel in your body, your mind, your soul?

How do I want to feel? It’s a powerful question.

Small Steps and Daily Rituals

What goals do you have for 2020?

Take one step in a positive direction.

Small changes add up over time.

We want the magic solution. The quick fix. The immediate results.

But each small step we take, every decision we make to treat ourselves better, builds upon the next. Soon you will see and feel progress!

Each step might seem small or insignificant in the moment, but it all adds up. Each step can evolve into new habits and form healthy daily rituals that will lead to greater well-being.

The simple changes and daily rituals that help us create a space we love to live in can also promote well-being and even greater wellness in the body we dwell in.” from my book Dwelling

Today’s the day my brand new Dwelling Well journal is released!

I’m using this new journal to keep myself focused on small changes and forward motion in 2020! Taking small steps and cultivating positive mindsets leads to success in life, health and well-being.

I’m so excited to share this journal with you all! If you haven’t ordered your Dwelling Well journal yet, you can get yours HERE! When you get it, I’d love if you’d join us for A Year of Dwelling Well (see the details here!).
