Plot: 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.

Thoughts: With our over whelming life, we often tend to feel frustrated, angry and stressed. These feelings lead to a lack of happiness in our daily lives. What if we choose ‘Happy’ as a lifestyle? What if we make it something that we actively ‘Do’? 21 Days of Happiness is one such book which guides you step by step, undertaking each activity a day to improve your happiness quotient.At the start of the book the author recommends to read one chapter a day and implement it on daily basis. At the end of each chapter there are 5 questions to analysis how a particular activity worked for you and made you feel. There are 21 happiness tips to undertake for 21 days in a row, till the time that happiness becomes a habit.

The book is well divided in chapters further divided into sections. I prefer reading non-fiction books with subdivision since it makes it easy for the reader to process information easily and understand the information in the best possible way.

The author has often referenced a lot of tips, techniques and examples from the best selling non-fiction books while explaining her concepts. Hence, this book becomes a plethora of all the best tips mentioned in these bestselling books.  Anyone who is a non reader or someone like me who is not into reading much non-fiction can just read this book and reap the benefits of reading all the non-fiction books mentioned in this book.

Apart from the ease of reading and well divided chapter, I also liked the way the author has given her own examples of undertaking these techniques. It makes it easy for the readers to relate to. I read one chapter each day for 21 days and it made a huge difference in my lifestyle. The book give practical tips and suggestions which don’t require a major reform in the way one lives but has a huge impact.

I haven’t been able to inculcate everything the book has to offer but I have made a start and it is already showing results. I would recommend this book to everybody who realizes the need of choosing happiness as a habit.
