A page a day to keep unhappiness at bay.
Researchers agree that happiness is a choice. It is something that comes from within, and you can strive to achieve happiness regardless of your circumstances. To some people that can appear a tall order but the premise of Everyday Happiness is that it takes only one small action every day to build happiness.
The start of a new year is a great time for new beginnings. Everyday Happiness is the perfect guide. On January 1, the reader makes a gratitude jar into which go notes about good things that happen throughout the year.
Each daily page features either an inspirational quote or an exercise, like try something new, take a plant to work, compliment someone, or embrace a color. On December 31, the jar is emptied and reread, bringing a new perspective, reminders of happy times, and hope for the new year. Like its companion title, Everyday Courage, Everyday Happiness is ready to use.
This little but substantial book is the perfect boost for anyone feeling a bit hard done by in the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Emma Hill is the author of Everyday Happiness and Everyday Courage.
