Doing Things, a little bit at a time is what seems to make a difference for me. The little wins, and I mean very little wins. They make me feel so good and are like little bursts of fuel that keep me going!
Ok. I promise I started doing this before the new year started.... I have not succeeded with resolutions in the past. But I recently decided to, come hell or high water, I will walk every day!
I already failed btw. I'm the master of setting my expectations too high. Pretty much setting myself up for failure and then, for some reason, I'm shocked when I fail.
Its winter and cold...Its hard enough to get out of bed. But this time, it actually is different. I'm trying to be kinder to myself ("So maybe today you forgot to change the fish but you accomplished to do some exercise in weather you hate! AND YOU ENJOYED IT!") . That's a win in my book.

(Expectations are real low for this, you can pretty much add anything. And why not celebrate the little victories that make us feel so good when we do them!)
