Great power lies in one small action.
Great power exists in one small action. The ripple out affect will touch every corner of your life. What is one small thing you can commit to doing on a daily basis that will help you feel better? I guarantee when you adjust your trajectory by one degree, you will be in a completely new place a mile down the road. Come on! Pick one thing! Will you share it with us? Inspire us with what you are doing! I’ll pick one thing, too!
Today I began a 21 day meditation series. It felt good to begin my day with stillness and a quiet mind. I appreciate what everyone shared here; I plan to work toward incorporating some of them into my days. Peace, Sarah
Natalie, what a great idea! Not only are you getting the fresh air, but also exercise. Powerful combo. Thank you for sharing! L
A short walk each night – outside! – even if I’m tired. Being outdoors and breathing fresh air is so very grounding for me…. Adding my walk back in will be good. Also, I get home late 3 or 4 nights a week – so I may well walk before I even go inside and “unwind” from my day.
Karen, I love it! Thank you for sharing!
Deliver one sincere thank you each day … A hand-written card, a call to a mgr to compliment an employee, flower/s to a friend, etc. We continue to say thank you at dinner time for whatever comes to mind (sunshine, snow, our dog etc) and that’s been great (& might even help w digestion since it’s said that one cannot be grateful and stressed at the same time!)
I have embraced daily meditation over the last few months, so I have recent first-hand experience in what a small change can do. I feel so grounded and calm. At the same time, my former daily asana practice has waned. So, my first item is really a “re”commitment to daily asana – one pose a day counts! My second commitment is to pause and listen at the end of every meditation session. My mind tends to be active, so I believe that ending on a pause (rather than a thought about whatever I am going to do next) will really increase my power to hear my inner voice.
I am going to practice what I preach (now THAT’s a novel idea!) and do yoga every day. Do I preach to do yoga every day? Not even! But I do preach that even one pose counts. I do my practice a few times a week. Frankly, I intend to do it every day, but assume “life” will get in the way a few days a week. On those days, I will do my one pose and it will count!
