Small Steps Lead to Big Changes

Making your home simpler and healthier is an overwhelming task…

Where do I start?
What should I change?
What do I buy/use instead?
I don’t want to/can’t DIY everything, but good products are so expensive!

The answer is “one step at a time”.  Don’t try to change everything all at once…you will be overwhelmed and want to give up…and then you’ll feel guilty.  Each step you take will mean a simpler and healthier life for you and your family.

Step #1

First things first.  Ask yourself “Why?”

Why do I want to make these changes?

What is my goal?

What am I hoping to gain from this?

Will this change add JOY to my life?
Write down your answers; then when you feel overwhelmed and ready to give up, go back and look at this list.  It will give you a new sense of purpose and a renewed commitment.

Once you know why you want to make changes, you need to ask yourself if now is a good time to make changes.
Do you have other major life change happening?  A new pregnancy?  A new baby?  Moving to a new house? etc…give yourself grace and time to make changes.

Ready for some change?  Why do you want to make changes?
