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. Learning to thrive means:
- Moving from awareness to action – from knowing what to do to actually doing it
- Embracing solutions that appeal to wisdom, wonder, intuition, reflection, and are steeped in science
- Taking the time to rest and recover in order to fuel and maximize productivity, both personal and professional
- Making the mindset shifts and habit changes that supercharge performance in ways that truly matter to us
Eschewing trendy self-care fixes or the latest health fads, Your Time to Thrive is the revolutionary guide to living and working based on Microsteps–tiny, science-backed changes. By making them too-small-to fail, we can incorporate them into our daily lives right away, and begin building healthier ways of living and working. This book is a Microstep bible. With chapters dedicated to sleep, nutrition, movement, focus and prioritization, communication and relationships, unplugging and recharging, creativity and inspiration, and purpose/meaning, Your Time to Thrive shares practical, usable, research-supported mini-habits that will yield huge benefits and empower people to truly thrive in all parts of their lives.
What did I think of Your Time to Thrive?
Every page, every chapter motivates us to take action. Your Time to Thrive is a beacon of inspiration – simply fantastic!
Your Time to Thrive teaches about the power of Microsteps – and the science behind it. Simply put, Microsteps are small, easily achievable goals that bring us closer to the best version of ourselves. Your Time to Thrive is a guide book on how to use these Microsteps to reach a happier and healthier life, in many different aspects.
The book is divided into 8 chapters, and each chapter covers a specific topic, such as sleep, modern technology, nutrition, physical activity and relationships. It provides science-based advice on how to improve our overall well-being through small, manageable steps.
“It’s the idea that if you make the steps small enough, they’ll be too small to fail.”
This idea is shown throughout the book with many Microsteps examples that we can adopt for ourselves. In fact, each chapter concludes with a list of Microsteps ideas, for easy-to-find inspiration.
I’ve personally written down quite a few of these Microsteps and have already started implementing some in my daily life. I can already see the shift in my mentality and I definitely feel more energized and motivated to improve my well-being.
Have you ever set a New Year’s Resolution for yourself and given up a few months in, due to lack of motivation or lack of results? This has been my case almost every year, and now I see why I could never reach my goals! Instead, I’ll try taking small, easy steps every day until I finally feel accomplished! I’ll start small and build upon my new habits.
I can’t recommend this book enough – I give it five stars! A definite MUST-READ, wherever you are in life, this book will help you get to the next level! It may even change your life!
