Healing Journey: Just One Small Step Every Day... It's a Journey

A healing/health journey is a process -- and not meant to be done in a day.

Give yourself grace, and focus on just making one small change a day; and if that's too much, then one small change a week. With each change, you will be moving forward in healing and health!

If you are struggling with some easy first steps, please choose from this list.


  • Visit a local park and sit on a bench and just breathe

  • Hike an easy trail in nature

  • Start a small garden, even if just one plant

  • Add a healing plant to your home


  • Take a walk (in your neighborhood)

  • Use the stairs instead of the elevator

  • Take a yoga class

  • Start basic resistance work


  • Start a daily meditation/prayer time

  • Begin a mindfulness practice

  • Start a gratitude journal

  • Develop an affirmations list


  • Start cooking at least one -- or one more -- meal from scratch

  • Begin examining food labels for sugars, seed oils, chemical additives

  • Replace sugary beverages with water and other alternatives

  • Clean up your pantry, removing toxic foods/ingredients


  • Switch out anti-bacterial soap with regular soap

  • Change your chemical detergent to a natural one

  • Ditch the dryer sheets for sheep balls with a few drops of essential oils

  • Get rid of chemical air fresheners and use essential oils instead – or just open the windows


  • Add nuts and seeds to your daily diet – we need more fiber in our diets

  • Add medicinal mushrooms or a mushroom capsule as a supplement

  • Research plant medicines and/or consider starting microdosing

  • Start a breathwork practice

  • Take a step toward ditching a bad habit/addiction, such as alcohol or cigarettes
