It’s the Little Things…13 (Mostly) Little Life Changes that Make a Tremendous, Positive Impact

Lately I’ve been writing a lot about Bullet Journaling, in particular, my Bullet Journal, but this week, I wanted to shift gears a little and talk about some small lifestyle changes that can make a huge difference in your day-to-day quality of life.  I was actually inspired to write about this by this BuzzFeed listicle.  For some reason, it popped back into my “For You” feed even though it’s 4 years old, and I like to peruse this type of content to see if there are any small changes I can try to make in my daily routine to make life a bit easier.  I then looked through a few more listicles and realized that, hey, I actually do most of the things suggested – and a few more of my own.  So today, I want to share with you the things that I have found that not only make my life easier, but have given me an overall better quality of life too.

The end of 2017 saw some pretty major life changes, and family losses, which, when coupled with the looming holidays, took me away from everything I held dear. Yes, even Bullet Journaling! Seriously guys, I didn’t journal or track anything
in November or December.

I entered 2018 hopeful though.  I was back to creating for swaps on Swap-Bot and mapped out my goals for the year – and yes,  I returned full force to Bullet Journaling too.  And then, I dislocated my left shoulder in a bad, bad way.
