The Story
The Power of Small is aimed at helping people make tiny, yet powerful changes when everything feels too much. Rather than waiting for the big life-changing moments, which more often than not never happen, The Power of Small shows you how to take manageable steps to change your life, one decision at a time - emphasising self-compassion as a means to gently expand your comfort zone and open up new horizons. Mixing personal anecdotes and story-telling with the latest psychological research, we reveal how changing the small things is a key to a much richer, fuller and more meaningful life, that really counts. The Power of Small will provide you with a toolkit of small actions and skills to help you break out of your comfort zone without becoming overwhelmed.
Best advice given
Surround yourself with people who will celebrate your wins and help you when you are challenged.
Business day
Start by setting your intention/value underlying your actions for today and let your goals be guided by this intention/value.
Mind yourself...
Regular self-care and a great network and friends.
Don't try to eradicate unwanted thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations and experiences from your life. Learn to channel them into something meaningful and connected.
