A couple of years ago, I started a book club at my house. It was basically an excuse to get together with girlfriends and drink wine, but we did have books as the theme. Anyway, one of the books that I read around that time was Gretchen Rubin's "Happiness Project". As a result of reading this book, I created a set of goals under a theme each month, dedicated to that year of working on happiness. This current month's smoothie challenge reminds me a bit of it.
Usually things are easier to do if we break them down into small steps. It's hard though if we want to see major shifts quickly. Let's say you want to transform your health. A number of things you need to change may pop into your head: working out regularly; drinking more water; eating more healthy; taking time to meditate, etc. This is all wonderful but chances are if you do all of this all at once and if these are all things that you have not already been doing, you may struggle. It's a lot of change. Of course there are some people that will be able to do it - similar to those people who can quit something cold turkey successfully. But more often if you ease into these lifestyle changes, you will likely be more successful.
