"All big things come from small beginnings" can apply to all areas of life, but especially to building wellness routines to support your health to have the energy, brain power and stamina to achieve each and every goal you've set in your life.
As we begin to create resolutions for the new year coming up, I encourage you to adopt the "1% better each day" concept from James Clear. The idea behind this concept is that rather than trying to make big changes to your life or routine, start by trying to just get 1% better at whatever your goal is. For example, if your goal is to routinely move your body each day by going on an hour walk, start by just putting on your shoes the first day, then maybe put on your shoes and walk out the front door for the second, then put on your shoes, walk out the front door and walk around the block for the third. Before you know it - you'll have worked up to your goal of moving for an hour and will be ready to get 1% better in a new area of your life. In one year from today, you'll be 365% better than you were today.
“All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision.
But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.” - James Clear, Atomic Habits
