Written by admin

Every year we promise ourselves to start doing or not doing something from January 1st. By the middle of the month, the heat is usually over. These ten books will help – without loud statements and waiting for calendar dates – to get into good habits.

“MINI Habits – MAXI Results”, Stephen Guise

Let’s start small

Usually we decide to change our lives in an instant and radically: lose 20 kg at once, meet all our friends in a week, switch to conscious consumption and stop buying new ones. This becomes an extra reason for stress: the brain begins to resist major changes, because stability is the key to survival. Stephen Guise derived his formula for creating and perpetuating small habits that can change lives for the better. He suggests breaking the task into small steps that will be easy to include in your usual daily routine. Want to do 100 push-ups a day – start with one. Are you going to think positively more often – remember something good at least a couple of times a day. Over time, minor changes will become a habit and you will believe in your own strength.

The musculature is perhaps the most underestimated system of human organs. The earlier you start playing sports, the better your chances of reducing your risk of developing many chronic diseases and getting rid of a number of existing ones. In addition, muscles are able to burn fat and literally slow down the aging of the skin. The authors of the book “Muscles. How are you? ” tell you how to motivate yourself to regular training or imperceptibly add movement to your life, what degree of muscle training is needed to maintain health and increase life expectancy. The authors claim that it is never too late to start training, and this does not require special skills or shells – just one desire to be healthy.

We often encounter situations in which we allow the habit to control itself. We just can’t give up, and the struggle for tough pictures of the world begins, each of which has little to do with complex reality. However, even in the event of a serious conflict, there is always the opportunity to agree if the parties are momentarily distracted from their own rightness and at least briefly agree that the picture of the opponent’s world may be true at least in part. The authors of The Context of Life: How to Learn to Manage the Habits That Manage Us believe that we often create barriers for ourselves on the path to success, and our cognitive habits are to blame. They tell you how to recognize and change the seven main ones:

  • to be right;
  • to be good;
  • do not take risks;
  • to control;
  • to evaluate;
  • generalize;
  • save time;
  • find explanations;
  • find excuses.

So this book is a practical tool to expand the boundaries of what is possible and improve the quality of life.
