Started today with a walk and a gym session. Then fell asleep 😴 I took this picture from a bench in the graveyard on the way up to the leisure centre. It was a beautiful day.
The self improvement journey half-heartedly continues!
Realistic ideas for forming positive habits. Lots of studies referenced. I took lots of notes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Finally got my hands on this 😽😻😻🙆
Everyone should read this book! It gives great, practical advice on how to start good habits and get rid of bad ones.
I went back to reading a nonfiction Self-help book. Since I‘ve been implementing new habits into my life including trying to read everyday I thought this would be the perfect book for that. And it was. For me it was a very fast read. Nonfiction books usually are faster for me instead of fiction to read or listen to. I love how the author explains how habits compound over time and how little habits can turn into bigger habits over time.
The best book on habit building. It was very interesting and crisp. If someone just wana read one book on habit building then this must be it.
I just started reading this. I am loving this so much. Success is often perceived as one big change or achievement. But James Clear defines success as a long series of small wins and tiny breakthroughs. I love his way of definition so much. It taught me to belive in and applause my every small steps—every single efforts. For those every tiny efforts will compound over time. Efforts always pay-off. Believe in your every efforts—they count.
I loved his back story. The points made were valid and noteworthy.
I've read this on kindle. I've felt the need to have a paper copy for a long time and low and behold there it was in Tesco!
4/5⭐ A great synthesis of psychological science into realistic approaches to understanding and building habits. Includes real-life examples and templates for reader use. #bookspinbingo
A must read. I was skeptical at first but the book is compelling and provides a step by step for habit building. This is a book I feel I should own and reread every few years. Highly recommend
I began my day by reading this Amazing book. ♥️ I‘ve read half of this book and I‘m absolutely loving it!! 😍
I'm not usually one for self-help books, but this one seems made for me. Here's hoping...
Yesterday-Rae has conspired against me. She got Mum to hide my chocolate and signed me up to join the gym. THANKS A LOT, Yesterday-Rae 🤣🤣
Today-Rae is not impressed and wants to go for a nap / fall face-down into the nearest cake.
Maybe Today-Rae should take it out on Tomorrow-Rae... book her in for a spin class or something... that'll show her... 😂
Plan to read the tagged to try and get me into better habits! Let's do this 💅
I don‘t know. One self help book is like any other self help book. 🤷🏽♀️
This was a reread (I listened to the audio last year) I wanted to take time to digest it and try to put things into practice as I went. There is practical advice for people trying to get organized (after 2 years of pandemic I pretty much have no routine), how to fine tune habits to master skills. And there are great tips for manipulating your environment to make it conducive to you goals.
Next daily reading is The Body Keeps Score!
Popsugar: book you can read in one sitting
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”
This book was one of the first I read last year (audiobooked), and I decided to re-read this year for a tune up (physical copy) chapter a day to let it marinate. And this quote made me think of Litsy. ❤️📚 🤓
A bit of a disappointment because this barely scratched any surfaces. I expected more but if you‘ve read The Power of Habit or anything similar, sign yourself up for the 30-day email workshop and just read the workbook and the emails.
Seeing as how it will be subzero this weekend, I figured I‘d join in. I have been slacking on starting Atomic Habits daily read and Song of Achilles keeps getting sidelined. Goals-
🥶Finish Current Reads-
🎧Yours Cruelly, Elvira
📕Song of Achilles
📕Cruel and Unusual
💥Willow (graphic novel)
🥶 start Chapter A Day-
📕 Atomic Habits

I thought that it would be a good idea and good start to read this book in the beginning of 2022. This book indeed offers some useful tips to form a good habit and would definitely benefit readers having such need. That said, I would not say that I enjoy reading this book which, I think, is not really a negative comment on this kind of book. 😅😂
I really enjoyed reading this book because the things tackled are the answers I‘ve been looking for. I also wanted to read it at the start of the year so that I can do better in my academic career this year. It hasn‘t been easy balancing school and work (and life). Helpful lessons that are practical. A must read for anyone who wants to make some improvements in their lifestyle. 4/5
My first finish of 2022 was Atomic Habits. I found this book very interesting. I read a chapter or two a day so I didn't rush through everything. I will be thinking of this book all year and hoping to develop good habits as a result.
1. One of my goals is to get back to using Litsy! That is why I keep doing these posts. Trying to get back into the habit! Otherwise, I have just been trying to foster good habits.
3. Atomic Habits. I actually started it in 2021, but I have been limiting myself to 1 or 2 chapters a day so I can process things!
Love this, great read to start the new year
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️definitely one of the better self help books. Clear and concise. I love how he approaches change in increment fashion so as not to be overwhelmed. Exercise 2 minutes a day to begin the habit. Lots of nuggets and worksheets for help.
I recently participated in a behavior modification class. The ideas put forth by Mr Clear sound like they would fit neatly into the same framework of change.
I loved this book. James explains how by just starting off implementing the tiniest of changes in our daily habits and lives we can make huge changes. This book shows just how small and seemingly insignificant a change in a habit needs to be and how just doing it consistently will lead to bigger and better changes. A very relatable and do able self help book.
Help! It's just me and Pickles this weekend... I've been left to fend for myself and finally have the house to myself for a weekend. Do I...?
A) Spend the weekend trying to get the house looking neat and tidy for my parents' return?
B) Invite all my friends and neighbours over for an impromptu disco rave?
C) Spend the weekend in deep meditation now that I finally have some peace and quiet?
D) Make some headway with these bad boys (pictured)?
This book is supposed to help with habits, but I‘m stuck on things like “Am I a potato or an egg?”.
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.”
I've been told I need to read these two self help books, but which to start first?
The book that'll stop me from eating cake for breakfast or the book that'll stop me beating myself up for eating cake for breakfast?
Or maybe I'll just go back to bed 😴
There‘s some nuggets of wisdom here! If it‘s been hard to action on any type of lifestyle change, this should help with respect to process and how to effect change on one‘s life … there are slow parts but the good part is they are over quickly and before we know it, we‘re reading about the next thing…
Your results have very little to do with the goals you set and nearly everything to do with the systems(habits) you follow. This book is very insightful on a very basic level. I‘m reading a chapter a day as I try to incorporate some better habits.
“The whole principle came from the idea that if you broke down everything you could think of that goes into riding a bike, and then improve it by 1 percent, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together.”
Haha Victor Hugo! Bravo!
Book 32 of 2021. A higher-up at work always sees me reading at lunch and he recommended this book to me.
