From the Publisher
Some mini habits teens can practice:
It’s not unusual to wake up feeling groggy. One simple habit to get into is to splash cold water over your face as soon as you wake up. This helps get the circulation going in your face, so it’s harder to stay in the zombie zone.
The Top 3
A good habit is prioritizing the top three things you must get done that day. Pick just three things so it doesn’t overwhelm you, and you’ll have a clear focus that feels achievable and actionable.
Say Thank You
Too often in our daily lives, we forget to say thank you. Whether it’s the cafeteria worker passing your lunch to you, your teacher giving you a handout, or your friend staying late to help you study, be sure to thank people for their kind actions.

Definitely a recommended book for families with teen and pre-teens.
Fast forward to present day at 17yrs old- he fights with everything the deficit caused by drug exposure- as he currently has a 3-5yr delay with intellect and memory retention deficit that boarders on comical if, not such a painful impact on his day to day..
Like any soon to be adult… Habits both, good/bad are part of daily life and have power to help/hinder ones world.. I knew he’d need an understanding of what is a habit… And the how? Along with the why..? Just to stand chance to become aware and empowered to make changes as needed.. This is when I had my Epiphany!! **One MUST grasp the TRUE idea of habits and their powers..
This sent me searching for help on a basic level- Which brings me to praise “mini habits.” It just made sense to educate and define what a habit is, why and how of habits and their power- then, hopefully with self reflection mentality- he would learn to recognize on his own. The book is set up in a realistic manner to achieve this. **this also makes a point to know and explain- that not all habits are bad!!!
I appreciate This is not a book giving orders or shaming.. teens experience plenty of that already! Nor, is this a figure it out yourself and call it a book either! This presents concepts in small slices + examples.. all to create reflection and tasking one to look inward to personalize information to the readers needs. I LOVE this was done in vocabulary that is conducive to teens vs. tackling a medical textbook!! Ha! I know some adults who could benefit from this- although simplified in delivery.. it applies to any!
I recommend for those who could benefit from a step by step explanation with self exploration. Those who process best in simple and tangible bites- this is one worth looking into. Sorry so long winded.. whew! Hope this info can help your decision- stay safe.
As a parent we try and teach all these skills to our kids but sometimes they just don't want to listen. The book gives her conformation that the things I said were important habits to be learning and they teach her how to learn the habits in a manageable way. Also lets face it we do our best as parents to teach our children everything we think is going to be valuable to them but we might forget somethings. This book is a really well rounded way to get them started on the path to being a successful, happy and productive adult. Would definitely recommend.
The second part of the book goes further into depth on forming better mini habits. It first open with "Laying the Foundation" which discuss the skills used for changing the habits. Building self confidence, being emotionally aware, reading non verbal cues, actively listening, and being empathetic are the main concepts discussed. Each chapter afterwards help form lasting habits related to
Chapter 4: Time Management (creating routines, managing stress, prioritizing)
Chapter 5: Personal Health (Eating healthy, exercising, spiritual health, emotional regulation)
Chapter 6: Fostering Relationships (building confidence, conflict resolution, socializing)
Chapter 7: How to "Adult" (budgeting, volunteering, paying it forward)
This book has had a very positive effect on both my kids and I've found that even at my age the book was a great refresher course. It's so easy to become complacent and it was a welcome "kick in the butt" to change some of my own bad habits and refresh good ones. Overall, it's a great book to help formulate good habits and create goals in small steps.
