How I came across this book?
How on earth am I going to be able to squeeze in a workout in my mad schedule. That's what I've been telling myself for almost three years. I always said to myself 'when I'll be out of uni, with a proper grown up routine, I want to take care of my body, eat and work out regularly and enjoy doing it'. But my schedule never slowed down since and six years later I've been struggling to follow my promise to myself. After coming across the idea of microsteps, I began to implement little actions to help me feel like I am starting to make a change and taking care of my body. I started reading the book 'Your Time to Thrive' in the midst of my new approach and it definitely gave me the boost I needed.
"Helping people build healthy new habits that improve their lives is more important than ever. Arianna Huffington launched Thrive Global to do just that - Thrive's specific mission is to end the epidemic of stress and burnout and help individuals and companies unlock their greatest potential. Science continues to show that we don't have to sacrifice our well-being in order to succeed; in fact, it turns out that well-being is critical to peak performance."
Microsteps are small, specific actions that can be taken to achieve a larger goal. The idea is that by breaking a larger goal down into smaller, more manageable steps, it becomes easier to make progress and stay motivated. They can be used in a variety of different contexts, including personal development, career advancement, and goal achievement. By focusing on making small, incremental changes, it can be easier to build momentum and make lasting progress towards important goals.
Favourite quote from the book
“It is a way of acknowledging that while we cannot control all our circumstances, we can control our responses. Far from being a weak response, gratitude strengthens our defenses against outside forces that seek to diminish us.” ―
