Transform your life with micro habits

The idea of changing your habits can feel overwhelming. It doesn’t have to. Micro habits can transform your life, according to Michael Mosley in his latest book ‘Just One Thing’

I have decided to make no big changes for 2023. 

Instead, let’s talk about very small changes but daily.

Micro habits are defined as small, simple actions you can take every day that’ll help you achieve big results.

You can use micro habits to transform virtually any facet of your life, wealth or business, by starting small.

Whether you’re hoping to eat healthier, exercise more often, watch less television, spend more time in nature, or something else, micro habits can help you make it happen.

Here are the micro habits that I have started this year:

1/ Stand on one leg and brush your teeth.    Balance issues increase with age.  I ‘should’ do yoga once or twice a week.  I have tried to commit to this and failed, more than once. I started balancing on one leg when I brushed my teeth on 1st January with surprisingly fast results.

2/ One minute planking when the alarm goes off.  I started this and have noticed an increased endurance quite quickly.  I assume the six pack is on its way.  (I also drag my pillow to the wall and stand on my head.  I am very close to doing this unaided by the wall).

3/ Pelvic floor exercises when I go to the loo.  Apologies for too much information, but this is important. This is definitely another muscle that starts to weaken over time.  The only statistic I needed to inspire change, was that half of all people over 50 years of age suffer from leakage.  Ewwww.  Not keen to be one of them.

Here are some others micro habits that I liked and want to share. 

1/ At the risk of sounding all Oprah’y, creating a gratitude habit will transform most lives. Set aside a few minutes each morning or evening, to think about things you are grateful for.  You will need a trigger.  Maybe this can be when you eat breakfast or just before bed?  This is my next one.

2/ I have long touted the ‘magic of compounding interest’.  Making small contributions daily to a dedicated account can quite literally turn you into a millionaire.  You will eventually need to invest somewhere, but nothing will shortcut the time and patience you will need to accumulate the money in the first place.

Take a look at what $100 invested for 30 years looks like, with an initial investment of $50,000 and a rate of 9.7% ( average return for Australian shares over 10 years)

Boom.  Not quite a millionaire but very close, not to mention better balance and a stronger pelvic floor. 

Micro habits.  Get started.
