Learn how to achieve the happiness you deserve
“A guide to sustaining your newfound contentment.” —Psychology Today
You see here a different kind of happiness book. The How of Happiness is a comprehensive guide to understanding the elemetns of happiness based on years of groundbreaking scientific research. It is also a practical, empowering, and easy-to-follow workbook, incorporating happiness strategies, excercises in new ways of thinking, and quizzes for understanding our individuality, all in an effort to help us realize our innate potential for joy and ways to sustain it in our lives. Drawing upon years of pioneering research with thousands of men and women, The How of Happiness is both a powerful contribution to the field of positive psychology and a gift to people who have sought to take their happiness into their own hands.

    Amazingly, the typical depressed person doesn’t seek treatment for an average of nine years after experiencing her first symptoms.2

    Below is a sample of my observations, as well as those of other researchers, of the thinking and behavior patterns of the happiest participants in our studies.

    They devote a great amount of time to their family and friends, nurturing and enjoying those relationships.
    They are comfortable expressing gratitude for all they have.
    They are often the first to offer helping hands to coworkers and passersby.
    They practice optimism when imagining their futures.
    They savor life’s pleasures and try to live in the present moment.
    They make physical exercise a weekly and even daily habit.
    They are deeply committed to lifelong goals and ambitions (e.g., fighting fraud, building cabinets, or teaching their children their deeply held values).
    Last but not least, the happiest people do have their share of stresses, crises, and even tragedies. They may become just as distressed and emotional in such circumstances as you or I, but their secret weapon is the poise and strength they show in coping in the face of challenge.

    what I hope this book will spur you to do—is to understand that becoming happier is realizable, that it’s in your power, and that it’s one of the most vital and momentous things that you can do for yourself and for those around you.
