People think happiness is a singular feeling, but it isn’t. The real way to feel happier is to expand your definition of happiness and manage your Happiness Zappers.
Pamela Gail Johnson, founder of the Society of Happy People, identified the four practical happiness principles that have helped thousands of people shift their mindsets so they naturally notice more happiness, whether it feels sparse, abundant, or somewhere in between. Pamela shares real stories from real people who put the four practical happiness principles into action. With thought-provoking workbook-style questions, you can immediately apply these principles to your life. You’ll discover:
• How happiness is unique to you and your circumstances
• How to manage common experiences that zap your happiness
• How happiness changes
• Thirty-One Types of Happiness
If you’re tired of positive thinking, to-do lists, or science-based books about happiness, you’ll love the simple and realistic approach Practical Happiness takes for you to improve your life. It should come with a warning label—CAUTION: You will feel happier.
