The 1% Wellness Experiment

Micro-gains to Change Your Life in 10 Minutes a Day

You don't need to devote hours to work on your wellbeing: you can improve your life by taking just 1% of your day to focus on your mental and emotional health.

There are 1440 minutes in every 24 hours. Subtract the optimal 8 hours’ sleep and 1% of your waking hours is just under 10 minutes.

Using the concept of marginal or micro-gains – tiny changes that add up to a big impact – this book invites you to enter into a month-long experiment with yourself:

Use 1% of each day for one month to experiment with a range of actions to improve your mental and emotional health.

Actions include establishing boundaries and saying no, overcoming comparison and handling anxiety, dealing with perfectionism, people-pleasing and creating habits. They are designed to improve your mood and increase your happiness without, crucially, taking up your valuable time.

By the end of the experiment you will have created your own bespoke tried-and-tested toolkit packed with techniques to lower your stress, strengthen your self-confidence, nurture your connections, instil calm and increase joy.

Pre-orders really make a difference to how a book is found by readers after the publication date. Bookshops are tight on shelf space and so the more pre-orders a book has the more likely a bookshop is to stock it because they see there are people interested in it.

Yes, of course my ego would love to walk into bookshops and see my book on a shelf! But, aside from my own pride I also know The 1% Wellness Experiment will have a real, positive and meaningful impact on anyone who reads it (plus the people around them because our own wellbeing ripples out to our loved ones, colleagues and communities) so I really want it to be available as widely as possible so that anyone who could benefit from the book can find it.

So, if you plan to buy The 1% Wellness Experiment I’d love you to consider pre-ordering rather than waiting until after publication day. You won’t be charged until it’s posted and hitting the pre-order button is an act of support.
