“If all of us do something very small, it becomes something very big.” 

Life is overwhelming, full on and busy. It’s a rollercoaster out there; we’re constantly bombarded with news and information as we try to navigate our way through the peaks, troughs, twists and turns of life. So, in Episode 17 of our podcast, Kat sits down with our Content Creator, Rakhee, to talk about the small steps we can all make towards a healthier, happy, more sustainable life.

There’s lots of energy in the new year as people set ‘resolutions’ and vow to make big changes for the year ahead, which can feel too much for many of us. So, join Kat and Rakhee as they talk through the things the Movement For Modern Life team are doing this January to set themselves up for the year ahead without the pressure and overwhelm.

Change can be difficult and challenging, but be inspired by the small changes Kat and Rakhee have made which have gone on to have a huge impact on their lives. Get practical tips on the small steps YOU can take to instigate change, hear snippets of wisdom to support you during those changes and be motivated by our power to impact others.

Kat and Rakhee will share their tools for coping when life gets busy and stressful, how we can break down our goals to more manageable chunks, and maybe even move away from the concept of goals!

It’s time to forget new year’s resolutions and instead think about intentions, gratitude and awareness. According to Kat, “there’s no self-improvement, there its no ‘best’ version of yourself, it’s just uncovering the real you.” January is a time for nourishing and nurturing, quiet and rest; time to make changes to rediscover and celebrate yourself.
