50 Small Practices to apply in your life NOW for a Happier 2017!

A week into the new year and motivation for a “happier and better you”‘ are still fairly high. Fast forward a few weeks and that motivation may diminish and momentum in achieveiung a better version of yourself may come to a complete halt. In order to keep the  momentum going, start by adding small practices or habits into your everyday life so you don’t feel overwhelmed with change and want to quit. I’ve already added a few of these practices in my life so far. I’ve started to drink less caffeine and more water. I have stopped body shaming myself ( I struggle with this one every day!) and I cleaned out my office! Big achievements so far  🙂

Adding small practices into your life will keep you grounded, content and your goals will become more achievable!.  You don’t have to apply all these practices or habits every day, that’s not practical, but adding one or two a day can lift your spirits and you will start to develop a better mindset with the added bonus of self love!

Good Luck and I hope this post has set you in the right direction to a happier you in 2017!
