Sometimes it can become too much.
Way too much.
When I was a health podcaster, it seemed like my how-to-be-healthy to-do list got longer and longer after each episode.
Cut back on carbs. Reduce the PUFAs. Nix the gluten. Do the detox. Black out the bedroom. Take the supplements. Get the lab tests. Do the intervals. Ask your farmer. Rock the blue blockers.
I can keep going. And going. And going.
In my experience, trying my darnedest to stick to the list just kinda stressed me out more than anything else. So I simplified. Eat real food. Move my body. Think mostly good thoughts. Done.
So now that I’ve been in the field of self-helpery for a little over a year now, I can see how things can get just as out of control.
Change your thoughts. Ask quality questions. Find your core values. Set your lifetime goals. Declare your why. Attract new friends. Carry the goal card. Meditate daily. Read this book. Write the gratitude list. Be there now. Feel the fear. Do it anyway. Go to yoga. Cleanse the chakras. Make the vision board. Leave your job. Return to love.

Today on The Quote of The Day Show, author Dan Millman speaks to this topic, encouraging you to take baby steps on your journey to that better life. Because a little bit of something is better than nothing.
