Simple Steps to Get the Most Out of Life
Happiness isn't the too-brief rush that comes from getting something you've wanted—it's the lasting great feeling that comes from becoming someone you want to be…..
And someone others want to be with, too. No matter where you start, Happy can help you improve your life and permanently alter your happiness set point.
Dr. Ian has inspired millions to lose weight. In counseling dieters, Smith learned that while achieving hard-fought and worthy goals can help make a person happy, even these real accomplishments aren't what make happiness stick.
In Happy, Ian Smith presents a program that motivates readers to understand the behaviors and mind-sets that work and last, including:
--How to be optimistic
--Why optimism and realism are not opposites
--How to get outside yourself
--The importance of family and community
--Why involvement leads to contentment
--Shedding the treadmill mentality of getting and spending
--Tapping the power of simple pleasures
--Mastering modern life to live in the moment
--What we can learn from the Danish people
--How to be, not just to do
Happy is a life-changing book from one of America's most trusted voices.
