The book ‘Think Small: The surprisingly simple ways to reach big goals’ is a really interesting read around reaching goals. Not your typical ‘dream big and believe in yourself’ stuff, rather some very simple, practical advice based on the research of the UK Government strategy unit, Behavioural Insights Team.
They suggest that there are five factors that have been shown to most improve your wellbeing… great areas to start setting some ‘small goals’. These are the five areas:
- Strengthening your social relationships
- Getting healthy and active
- Learning something new
- Being more curious
- Giving to others
Why not choose a small, achievable goal in just one or two of these areas and take some first steps towards them over the next few days!
