A lot of us spend our time looking at the big picture. We worry about where
our careers are heading; how our children will thrive at school; and how
will we prepare financially for our family’s future. But it’s
important to realize that big changes actually start small.
One way to significantly reduce stress in your life is to focus on small
changes. “Sometimes in fixing the small things, the big things take
care of themselves,” says Lisa Cavallaro, Psy.D., a licensed clinical
psychologist for the
Torrance Memorial Lundquist Cardiovascular Institute.
Cavallaro gives the example that we don’t try and swallow an entire
plate of food at once, rather we take bites. We can use the same analogy
for our lives, making the day-to-day bites count. So start by making one
change and see how it affects the big picture.
