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:
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.
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.
