I am taking part in the #52LittleThings challenge with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes in my lifestyle, one week at a time to become a healthier and happier person.
This week is officially my last #52LittleThings post and now its time to reflect, time to take stock and to take on board all of the small changes throughout the year that I have made to try to make myself or my family happier and healthier… and do you know what … I am overwhelmed … picking just one is totally out of the question for me .. however this will make the first and last challenge all year that I have been unable to do .. I have so many of the #52LittleThings that have made a difference that there will be more than one in this post (Sorry AXA PPP healthcare I just have so many more than one)
When I first started this project in January I worried, not because I felt the project would be the wrong fit, just more along the lines of .. can small differences really make that much difference?
Well 52 weeks in and I can hand on heart say that they do, first and foremost I can say that taking that time out each week to make changes and to sit and think about them afterwards has been really really beneficial. Sometimes I find in life that I am so very much set in my ways and often don’t have the time or inclination to look deeper than what I see on the surface, #52LittleThings has helped me to look beyond the skin deep in myself, in own health and my own lifestyle.
Dont get me wrong I am not perfect and there were several #52LittleThings that I am still battling with and not winning … but still keep trying as I know they are so beneficial to me.
So here we go folks … some of my top #52LittleThings…
#52LittleThings Week 42 – Celebrate The Root Vegetable – This was just the push we needed to look into a wider range of vegetables and now we batch cook soups with root veg and can’t believe we didn’t do it before now!
#52LittleThings Week 34 – Bake A Healthy Treat – I totally loved this one and so much so that I have even now set up another blog called www.notTHATJaimeOliver.com which covers interiors and food and its documenting my journey into discovering how to cook!
#52LittleThings Week 12 – Swap Indoors For Outdoors - This one we have been religiously sticking too this year. Its been great to allocates some family time and get some fresh air at the same time too!
#52LittleThings week 9 – Get Better Sleep – Although this is one that eludes me the most, it’s the one I try really hard with and will continue to try to do.
So sorry AXA PPP healthcare for not being able to give you just one answer to this weeks post … but I would like to say a massive thank you for taking me on this challenge and for helping me see that small changes make a big difference!
