Thrive Global founder Arianna Huffington has some simple advice for business owners and executives who don't have time to take care of themselves: Spend 60 seconds to 3 minutes each day on a "Microstep" -- a brief self-care activity that will help you be healthier, happier, more relaxed, or more mindful.

"Every morning, I came up with all sorts of excuses not to do my Microstep: I was running late, I had better things to do, today just wasn't the day.

"My favorite Microstep is around gratitude because gratitude has been found to be the greatest antidote to stress and anxiety, and these times are stressful and full of anxiety," Huffington said.

Expanding on the work of small changes advocates B.J. Fogg and James Clear, Huffington recommends doing the same Microstep every day for 32 days to possibly establish a new habit.

In these days of Covid-19, when most people are grappling with stress and many fear returning to offices, successful companies are finally getting the message about self-care and wellness, Huffington said.
