Sundays are all about self-care on Little-Spaces. As Littles, we can sometimes forget about self-care – possibly because we rely on our Bigs to manage things like that or because we’re simply overwhelmed with the rest of our lives. Every Sunday, I’m going to take a moment to talk about a self-care tactic you can use as a Little!
Today, we’re going to tackle a Tiny Thing.
Self-care isn’t all about baths and cupcakes and cute movies. Sometimes, self-care needs to be about doing things that need doing. But sometimes, doing those things feels overwhelming and impossible. That’s where the Tiny Thing comes in!
Just do a Tiny Thing. Just one.
What’s a Tiny Thing? It’s something small and insignificant on its own, but they can add up into the big ball of unmanageability that feels too overwhelming to handle. It’s something like replacing the burnt-out lightbulb in the hallway or cleaning the toilet. Don’t let yourself get trapped into thinking you have to check all the burnt bulbs or clean the entire bathroom. Do one, single Tiny Thing.
Why just one? Because it won’t overwhelm you. And if you chip away at the Tiny Things on the days that you don’t feel like you can tackle something big, you’ll keep them from ganging up together into something huge and overwhelming. Doing one Tiny Thing a day helps keep you moving toward a healthy lifestyle!
So trounce a Tiny Thing today! Pick up the dirty dishes from your bedroom. Put one basket of laundry all the way away. Take the trash out from the bathroom. Sweep the entryway. Just one Tiny Thing. I know you can do it!
