I’m pretty sure you already get that it’s the small things we do on a regular basis that create our habits of lifestyle that are either supporting or undermining our opportunities to live more happy, flourishing and prosperous lives.

What I enjoyed most about this book is the practical intentional actions you can take – small changes on a weekly basis that can add up over a year to a significant improvement or maintenance of a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.

While I don’t personally agree with all of the suggested actions, there are more than enough small changes for me to be concentrating on and that continue to form my foundation life habits.

The idea of planning a year of change might sound pretty scary, but like most things in life, when you break them down into smaller, manageable bits, progress can be made.

Even if after reading this book you come up with your own list of 26 small changes and implement one each fortnight, I’m pretty confident the small changes you make will create significant, positive and lasting changes in your life.

Research shows that the biggest impact we can personally have on living a more happy, flourishing and prosperous life is to choose intentional actions that will lead us to more well-being. It’s certainly not rocket science or a new idea to add some new activity into your life each week for 52 weeks, however for most of us, when left to our own devices, we fall back into the comfort of our what we’re currently doing.

As a ‘caveat’ to this book review, each of us needs to always consult professional advice when it comes to changing our diet and exercise routines.
