Happiness How to choose and build a happier life: a practical guide
Part of the Life Psychology Series—books written by psychologists who have practical experience, bringing together the latest thinking and practice in a clear and easy to read format, aimed at people who need a simple but effective guide for addressing their problems and improving their life. Do you wonder where your life is going and when will you start to feel happy within it? Feeling lost and unhappy, without a direction or sense of purpose? Do you sometimes feel so caught up in work and responsibilities that you can’t enjoy the things you used to? Do you want to slow down or find ways to bring fun back to your life? Are you considering a significant life change because you feel burnt out or unhappy with your current life? Do you often find yourself wishing that you knew how to be happier?
These thoughts and feelings can happen at any stage of your life and are a common ailment in the 21st century. With a mass movement towards materialism, and increasing pressure on our time due to the fast pace of modern lives, people have forgotten how to be happy, or are looking for happiness in the wrong places. Happiness is now a well respected field of research in psychology and this book is aimed at those who want to enhance the experience of happiness and lead a more fulfilled and positive life. Through the book, you will find steps and strategies that have been proven to increase the experience of happiness. You will also find a basic description of the steps that can be taken to integrate each of these strategies into your day-to-day life. This easy to read book is divided into three sections: The first section lists techniques that can be applied quickly with immediate effect The second contains techniques that take some more time to apply, but then yield consistent results The third section helps the reader explore deeper aspects of their life which can take time to change, but can have a major impact on longer term happiness
What others say about Happiness: a practical guide: “Like a lot of people my age, I had become a little jaded and a bit lost. I remembered being much happier when I was younger This book put me back on the right path and helped me rediscover ways to make my life a much happier place.” “I had been looking for happiness in all the wrong places, and once you read a book like this, it is clear what you need to do to be happier, but it takes a book like this to make you realise it.” “It covers all the main ways to be happy and I found some of the techniques had an impact straight away. The structure was useful, suggesting quick fixes for those who need to see immediate change, while working towards some of the more longer acting happiness strategies.”
