Blurb: Changing how you think is possible. I wasn’t always so sure that was true until I experienced it myself, but I know now we don’t have to just accept unhappiness. Not always anyway. This book is my collection of tips and suggestions that have helped me achieve happier thinking. It’s sort of a gym for my mind. I’d love to tell you it was easier than the real gym but well… it’s not really. It takes time, effort, and practice but it’s absolutely well worth the rewards.
Happier Thinking is a slim, cheery little book, packed with tips and advice on how to think more positively and cast negativity out of your mind. Think of the #100daysofhappiness challenge but in bitesize advice format!
Lana Grace Riva addresses the reader directly in a friendly, informal style; you can clearly hear her personal voice as she dispenses clear and sensible advice whilst also occasionally getting sidetracked into her own thoughts on the subject in question.
None of the information in the book is ‘rocket science’. These are sensible and commonsense tips, and the joy is in the accessibility to all readers. Without patronising, Riva inspires a feeling of confidence that the happier mindset she describes is achievable, and she provides useful examples along the way of how her advice can be applied in everyday situations.
I personally plan on buying a few copies of this book for stocking fillers this year, as I found the tips useful myself (I am an habitual what-if-er) and can think of some friends and family that would both enjoy and find this handy for refocusing on the positive in life.
Why not spread a little happiness as the nights draw in?!
Bad things will still happen. I would love nothing more than to present you with ways to eliminate bad things in your life (annoying this book is not that I know – can someone please write that book?!). I can, however, provide suggestions for lessening the power of bad experiences on your mood.
