You may not have thought that such suggestions as "Don't even try to get motivated to exercise" and "Stop hoping to find friends" would show up in a book on happiness, but those are just a couple of the "habits of happiness" Dr. Wendy Ulrich invites readers to consider.
This perfect blend of scientific research, engaging anecdotes, and practical advice that you might not have expected can help you discover new ways to feel a little better about life.
I like the almost opposite way of looking at what we need to do...Don't Worry about your Weaknesses, Don't try to get motivated to Exercise...sounds backward but it sure does make sense. Really. Don't worry about your weaknesses, work on your strengths, don't wait for motivation, get started, and don't wait for friends to come to you...reach out and be a friend first...they will find you. Sound advice to becoming proactive and positive instead of dwelling on the negatives and waiting for whatever it is, to come along. I like this book, can you tell? Be a great gift for a graduate, a good friend, anyone with feelings of inadequacy and anyone who's looking to making changes in their lives, which is just about anyone, and everyone.
Wendy Ulrich asks readers to focus on 7 habits of happiness in her engaging little book. Filled with personal stories and quotations each habit offers opportunities for further study and recommendations for creating lists and journal entries. Sharing that happiness is considered a "divine outcome" Wendy helps you find a path to true happiness and joy in this cute little book. Its like a Time Out for Women seminar at your fingertips!
This book is INCREDIBLE!
Things I would NEVER think of doing to increase happiness
Here is her list:
*Don’t worry about your weaknesses
*Don’t try to get motivated to exercise
*Stop hoping to find friends
*Don’t try to be happy
*Don’t try to get help with your problems
*Don’t endure to the end
The information about this list and the things Wendy includes I believe to be TRUE!
It just makes SO MUCH SENSE!
Some of my favorite quotes:
“Allow the feeling of gratitude to surround your problems.”
“Live is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”
Let the habits of happiness begin…
