What is small? Is 5% small? Is 1%? How small can something be and still make a change? Would you use .35% of your day to begin to change your health, happiness, attitude?
The ‘5 Minute Solution’ will be the pebble that causes a ripple across your pond and as you practice it the ripple becomes a small splash and has the potential to turn into a wave. (1440 minutes in a day 5 minutes + .347%) Schedule a 5 minute walk, breathe deeply for 5 minutes, take in your surroundings and shut out the noise of your day. Don’t think about work just observe the sky, the flowers, the clouds, the air. 5 minutes at 14:19 will refresh, invigorate and put a smile on your face.
What if you did the ‘5 Minute Solution’ four times a day. At 08:19 read something silly for 5 minutes, at 14:19 go for a 5 minute walk, at 17:19 sit quietly for 5 minutes and listen to your breath, take 5 minutes, in front of a mirror and smile at yourself at 20:19. 4×5 minutes is about 1% of your day. Are you willing to try this for 8 days and observe what happens to your attitude, happiness and health?
The ‘5 Minute Solution’ is a time tested practice ( I tried it for two weeks, so not exactly pure science, but what is?) that I am sure will offer value to your days and improve your relationships.
