Recommendations ~ Atomic Habits by James Clear

Atomic Habits ~ An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones

Editorial Reviews "James Clear’s best seller Atomic Habits sets out to prove that improving your life doesn’t have to mean making enormous changes. You can make real, important changes with small alterations in your routine—waking up five minutes early, or doing two push-ups a day. In fact, Clear states that there are only 10 simple steps you need to take in order to create remarkable change in your life. Clear himself narrates the book and as a frequent podcaster and a guest on countless talk shows, his compelling voice makes his life lessons easy to digest. The tips and methods you’ll hear are paired with real life stories of Olympic athletes, business bigwigs and leading scientists, demonstrating how Clear’s advice has been put into action by real people — and how you can apply these methods to improve your own day-to-day."

Critic Reviews "A supremely practical and useful book. James Clear distils the most fundamental information about habit formation, so you can accomplish more by focusing on less." (Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck) "James Clear has spent years honing the art and studying the science of habits. This engaging, hands-on book is the guide you need to break bad routines and make good ones.’ (Adam Grant, author of Originals) "A special book that will change how you approach your day and live your life." (Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle Is the Way)

This was another hidden gem suggested by a friend.

Even though I personally found it related mainly to business/sport principles and questionable advice, which may suit someone else though, I did find sage advice in the practices, steps that I could apply to my personal healing journey and spiritual practice.

It lessened the overwhelming feeling I sometimes feel on my path. Even just applying the 1% principle to creating healthy habits, it changed my attitude.

The healing journey includes learning tools, gaining wisdom, applying practices in your every day life to facilitate healing. Another way to look at it is, changing habits - your thoughts, your beliefs, your choices, your actions. And it takes practice of new ways to create new habits while disrupting and dissolving the old habits, whatever the intent. The book helps break it down to achievable steps how to do that if you apply the principles.

Remember the answers do lay within, may this book help unlock what they may be.

If we don't challenge and change behaviour, how do you expect things to change?

Blessings, Mim
