    Karen Salmansohn does it again !!

    I'm a big fan of author Karen Salmansohn. I love her previous books, 'How To Be Happy, Dammit' especially -- all of them are entertaining or helpful or both. In this new book, she explains her own idea of 'hocus focused energy magic,' -- paying attention to positive stimuli instead of negative thoughts as a self-help strategy. (One of her Do-Nothing Exercises, for instance, encourages you to focus on the simple, physical pleasure of showering.) I find these suggestions not only humorous, but also actually useful as a philosophy or psychology of life. Dealing with negative thoughts is a huge challenge that requires multiple tools -- and both humor and 'doing nothing' or doing a little routine thing 'mindfully' are helpful. My favorite psychology book on this subject is 'The Positive Power of Negative Thinking' by Dr. Julie Norem. More approaches and perspectives offer increased possibilities for what will help any given person on any given day. Individuals differ and so do our daily moods. It is certainly true that no one size fits all of us. So as part of one's 'tool bag' for dealing with negativity, I recommend 'How to Change Your Entire Life By Doing Absolutely Nothing' by Karen Salmansohn.
