You don’t need to devote hours to work on your wellbeing: you can improve your life by taking just 1% of your day to focus on your mental and emotional health. There are 1440 minutes in every 24 hours, subtract the optimal 8 hours of sleep and you’re left with 960 minutes. 1% of those 960 minutes is just under 10 minutes.
This book challenges you to enter into a month-long experiment: use 1% of your day for 1 month to focus on you. The micro-gain challenges in the book are designed to improve your mood and increase your happiness without, crucially, taking up your valuable time. Challenges include establishing boundaries and saying no, dealing with your inner critic, overcoming anxiety and comparison.
By the end of the month you will have created your own bespoke kit of tools that lower your stress, strengthen your connections, instil calm and increase your joy.
