Wellness Toolbox Tips – May ’09

Making Change Manageable It can often seem overwhelming to think of making a change, altering a habit, beginning something new. Making Change Manageable

It can often seem overwhelming to think of making a change, altering a habit, beginning something new.

Think of one small change or improvement you would like to make in three areas, fitness, nutrition and stress/joy. Now decide on a very small measureable step toward each goal. Now ask yourself which one are you the very most ready to start today. Do this one small achievable step until you are 75% successful and give yourself a little reward. Then try the next change that you are most ready for. If you are really stuck, enlist the help of friends, family, a coach or a personal trainer.

“Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn’t know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong.” from The Diary of Anne Frank

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
