Thinking about the future can be daunting. When you break it down into daily and weekly goals, things actually seem doable. You’ll find motivation in the little details and before you know it, that big goal will be crossed off and it’ll be time to tackle the next big thing.
“Success is a series of small wins.”
Write down 3 things that went well this weekend
Sometimes we get distracted by the big goal. It may seem hard to reach because it feels so far off in the distance. In reality, you’re making steps towards your goals each and every day. What little wins did you have this weekend?
Switch out the sugar
Cutting out processed sugar cold turkey may be a tough one! Start by replacing sugary treats with a piece of fruit or some dark chocolate. If you like to bake, look for healthier recipes of your favourite treats with either less sugar or are naturally sweetened. Need some inspiration? Check this place out!
Add more movement in your day
The goal of “getting fit” can feel challenging. For those who are just beginning, start by blocking off one day a week to do a workout. If making time for workouts is becoming challenging with a busy work schedule, find smaller ways to move throughout the day like taking a walking break or stretching at your desk.

Sneak in more greens
Always have the goal of “eating healthier” in mind yet find yourself falling off the wagon? You can get started today by adding a handful of greens into a smoothie, dipping cucumbers in hummus as a snack, or maybe adding avocado to your salad. That daunting goal of eating healthier becomes less of an obstacle – you’re already on your way!

Get more me-time
Finding time for yourself is always tricky when work and other commitments get in the way. Start with something small: block off 30 minutes first thing in the morning and 30 minutes before bedtime for yourself. If you’re able to, try taking some additional time during the middle of the day to refocus on you.
