As a somatic coach who’s spent years learning and working with all kinds of different bodies, I’ve learned a thing or two about the power of small actions and community when it comes to making meaningful change. So often, we’re bombarded with messages that tell us we need to make massive, overnight transformations in order to see any real progress. But in my experience, the opposite is true: small, consistent actions are often the most effective when it comes to creating lasting change.
One reason for this is the concept of neuroplasticity. Put simply, our brains are incredibly adaptable, and we have the ability to rewire our neural connections and create new pathways that support the changes we want to make. And while this might sound like a complicated process, the truth is that it’s often the small, daily actions that have the most impact on our brain’s wiring.
But here’s the thing: making small changes on our own can be challenging. We’re all busy and stressed, and it can be hard to prioritize the things that we know will help us feel better. That’s where community comes in. When we’re part of a supportive group of people who are all working towards similar goals, we have an extra layer of accountability and encouragement that can help us stay on track.
We can often see it in others before we see it in ourselves. And we can often BELIEVE IT FOR others before we can do so for ourselves.
Whether you’re trying to heal from trauma, build a new habit, or simply take better care of yourself, know that you don’t have to go it alone. Find a community that resonates with you, and start taking small, consistent actions that support your goals. Over time, those small ripples will add up to big change.
I run a community like this for heart-centered caregivers over at www.jo-tucker.com/group-coaching . Have a look at the space to see if it’s the right fit for you.
