I was a given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Here it is…
I think books like this are important for everyone to read from time to time to remind us to live in the moment, practice gratitude, and gain a better perspective on our situations. By doing these things we can recognize that happiness that is already within us and bring it to the surface.
There are definitely some great takeaways in this book. For example:
…when people took the time at the end of the day to think of three good things that happened to them and write them down, happiness increased immediately.
Happy Here and Now is a great reminder of the small things we can do each and every day to achieve more happiness in our lives. For me, however, it wasn’t written in a way that really grasped my attention and made me want to keep going. Toward the end it started feeling like a summary of other books on similar topics.
