Book Review: 21 Days to Happiness

Book Description:

Struggling to find work-life balance? Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed and frustrated or just want to increase your happiness, you can learn how in just 10 minutes a day!

For some of us, feeling busy or stressed has become the new normal. Others feel okay, but just want a boost to productivity, energy and motivation.

Instead of hoping for happiness, what if happiness is something you DO, something you CHOOSE every day? The good news: it is and the solutions are simple.

Psychologist and happiness expert Ingrid Kelada provides a practical, step-by-step guide to help you increase your personal happiness and feel more motivated. You can learn how with simple 10-minute strategies. Each day of the 21-day journey focuses on one key area of your life, including:

Time: how to break the cycle of chaos and manage your time effectively.
Body Language: exploring the surprising links between body language and happiness.
Relationships: how to make the most of the number one predictor of happiness.
Work: how to use your strengths and talents so that you are engaged and motivated.
Money: what you should spend your money on to feel most satisfied.

The book is interactive. Each chapter features resources like apps to try, videos to watch for deeper understanding, or tools to help you master these new habits. At the end of three weeks, along with increased happiness, you’ll find you’ve become more:

• productive
• focused
• patient
• energetic
• healthy
• motivated
• positive

Happiness is a choice. A daily decision to choose happy can be easy, fun and rewarding. With this book, in just a few minutes per day, you can practice one new happiness habit, add resources to your arsenal, and jot down your notes in the journal section.

My Thoughts:

Let’s face it all of us yearn to be happy. After you achieve the basics of life, (food and shelter), you naturally begin to seek something more. You don’t want to wake up day after day to go through the motions in a robotic like state of misery. You don’t want to grudgingly get out of bed, take a shower, put on your clothes and mindlessly drive to work. No, we all want to feel good as we walk through this life. We all want to enjoy the moments that make up our lives. Add up all of the minutes of a lifetime and you certainly want to look back and reflect on moments that elicited a smile.

So how do you find happiness? How do you change the way you live and work to encourage enjoyment? 21 Days to Happiness seeks to increase your happiness, productivity and energy. Through a series of chapters, twenty-one to be exact, the author steps you through methods that can boost your happiness. While the impact may be life changing most of these changes require very simple little changes to the way you act, think and feel.

Each chapter focuses on a relatively easy change. The author provides concrete steps that help you focus your energy on those things that are truly important in life, rather than the rat race we think is so important.

By refocusing your energy on items like music, gratitude, dietary changes, breathing and sleep you can change the amount of happiness you feel. If you want to bring more joy into your new year check out this book or gift it to someone who could use a mental boost.
