The Three Small Changes I Made for Me

The self-improvement and self-love narrative is nothing anything new to me, my blog and my social media accounts. If you’re already following me on Instagram (if not, why not? ? click here) you’ll have seen that I bought myself the loudest pair of adidas running shoes you can imagine and have been really trying to form healthy habits. Amid a big change, I’m trying to not be the biggest cliché of all, but I do want to make this chapter in my life the best I can.

So, I thought I would share with you all the three small changes I have made that seem to be making the biggest difference in the way I feel.

Stop Being so Hard on Yourself – It’s Okay to be on Day One Again

For those of you who have come along on our #DoTheDaniel adventures over the last few years, you’ll have seen that I have a newfound appreciate of fitness and finding balance in my day-to-day.

Like many of you, it can be intimidating, and even overly expensive to try and work towards being more physically active and make healthier choices. Recently I found out that Fitbit has launched four new products that are aimed to make your health and fitness goals more accessible, and more importantly, more affordable.
