Making changes to your life is easier than you think. You just need to know where you want to start making changes and then simply, do it. Don’t overthink it, just go for it.

EDIT YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
Any changes you want to make in a month are easy if you have the right mindset and the right people around you. Surrounding yourself with positive people is the key to making changes in your life. You need to have the right cheerleaders and the right people around you who will keep you on track.
If you have someone in your life who always brings you down or doesn’t support your goals, drift away from them in a positive and productive way.

DEVELOP YOUR GOALS
Constantly develop your goals. Every week you need to set yourself a new goal, even if it’s related to these ten changes you’re making. Make sure that your goals are SMART, specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-specific. For example, you’re going to work out for 30 minutes every day and lose two pounds per month.
Develop them, so that if after one week you realize you’ve lost three pounds already, you can change the goal post to push yourself a little harder.

START WRITING EVERY DAY
Making changes to your routine and your life can lead to negative feelings and emotions. Humans are naturally resistant to change, which is why you need to rewire your mind and start a journal. You can use the 365 Days of Gratitude Journal for this. Journal everything you’re thankful for, write down the things that made you smile and build positive habits and associations with the changes you’re making.

TRY YOGA EVERY DAY
What could you achieve in one month if you practiced yoga every single day? Your body and your health could benefit massively from stretching, working out, improving your posture and being more mindful while you practice yoga. It’s such a simple improvement you can make to your day that has huge benefits.

GET RID OF ALL THE JUNK FOOD
The standard diet in most cases is made up of too many processed foods. Did you know that your mood and your outlook on life can be massively influenced by the food you eat? Junk foods make you lethargic, bloated and give you brain fog. One of the first things you should do if you’re looking to upgrade your routine is cut out the junk food and focus on eating healthily every single day.

UPGRADE YOUR TO-DO LIST
If you really want to change your life for the better, you need to create a daily to-do list and stick to it. This is a success strategy that many people have used to become more organized, to smash their goals, and to have a clear head.
Remember, what you need to do is focus on making tweaks to the way you do things every single day, so that when the end of the month rolls around – you’re smashing it!

SWAP ENTERTAINMENT FOR EDUCATION
Instead of sitting in front of the TV and watching Netflix, why not enroll in a course, go outside into the evening air, or find a better use for those wasted hours. If you’ve got goals to smash (like working out) the evening is a perfect time to work on them. Try it for 30 days and see what happens. Not convinced? One research study indicates that most wealthy people watch television for an hour or less per day.

UPGRADE YOUR SELF-CARE ROUTINE
You need to start taking self-care seriously if you want to make changes to your life. Stress is a part of life, you will experience it whether you’re working, out and about, socializing, or smashing your goals, you need to future proof yourself against this stress and take care of yourself if you want to make changes.
Massage, yoga, a face mask, a bubble bath, working out, all of these things count as self-care. Anything that boosts your self-esteem and makes you feel good should be part of your routine.

AT LEAST 3 WORKOUTS A WEEK
Choose your best days, for example, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and go for a run, jump, go for a swim, whatever you need to do to move your body is worth it. Working out is not just about looking good, it’s mostly about feeling good – and the more you work out, the better you’ll feel.

WORK ON SOMETHING THAT’S JUST FOR YOU
Finally, you need to work on something that’s just for you every single day. Are you writing a book? Studying a new language? Training yourself to lift weights? Whatever it is, know that the next thirty days are yours to make it happen. So be sure you’re working on something for yourself every single day.
