You’ve heard it all before: Just think positive! Just believe! But there’s no quick fix for a happy life. Be Happy is a practical guide for forming 35 daily habits that will lead to a life of thriving rather than just surviving.
Let Dr. Rebecca Ray guide you through the four central tenets of Choosing, Cultivating, Practicing, and Making Space for the good things in your world:
Be Happy's techniques are based on the science of Positive Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, the very movements responsible for millions of people improving their well-being. Become a happier version of yourself by adjusting your daily routine with these powerful tools!
- Choosing to focus on life’s joys instead of its hardships.
- Cultivating a positive inner voice instead of always criticizing yourself.
- Practicing mindful productivity instead of multitasking overload.
- Making Space for crises instead of shutting down when things get tough.
There is no set of habits more important than those that help you thrive—and because Be Happy’s tools are quick, simple, and enjoyable to use—integrating this book into your daily life is easy. Happiness is an emotional state that can be hard to find and hard to hold onto. By using these tools in your daily life, you can gain control over this fickle state and take your ability to thrive into your own hands.
