'I'm too busy to be happy . . .'
Do you ever think like this? Many of us do these days, says psychologist and happiness expert Dr Timothy Sharp. In our quest for better jobs, bigger houses, more exotic holidays and higher-performing children, we have become too busy to factor in the one component that will make all of the above worthwhile: happiness.
The good news is that achieving happiness is not a herculean task. It doesn't require expensive therapy or years of self-examination. Oftern it is about fine-tuning our thoughts and putting in place some simple daily practices.
Dr Sharp draws on the latest research into the science of happiness and presents it here in 100 bite-sized chunks of inspiration and instruction. Read it from cover to cover, or dip in and out for a regular dose of happiness training. Learn how to increase your happiness levels by:
- improving your physical health
- counting your blessings
- nurturing positive relationships
- becoming a giver
- better managing your time.
Accessible, informative and funny, 100 Ways to Happiness encourages us to regard happiness as something that is achievable, manageable and hugely enhancing to the lives we live now.
