Day 2990: An achievable next step

In therapy, when people feel overwhelmed, I ask them to identify an achievable next step.

For me, here and now, achievable next steps include:

  • sending an email inviting somebody to connect with me via ZOOM,
  • opening up 2020 tax preparation software for the first time,
  • entering some tax data,
  • sending my video of “Vaccinated Women” to another TV show,
  • calling my health insurance company about family coverage,
  • calling a new company about my flexible spending health accountability account,
  • dancing, and
  • sharing these images with you:

According to the CDC, achievable next steps are definitely changing. Change is stressful, even those changes you desperately want. I would suggest choosing and practicing an achievable next step for reducing stress.

For me, sharing music I love is an achievable next step. Here are international women taking achievable next dance steps to “So What” by Miles Davis.

Is an achievable next step for you leaving a comment about this achievable-next-step post?

Gratitude is always an achievable next step for me.
