My Video Book Review:



Welcome to another video book review. Today, we are looking at Happy Here and Now by Matt Tracy.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, and this is it.

I think that books like this are good for us to read for everyone to read on, you know, just occasionally books that remind us about those little things that we can do every day to increase our happiness or to be more thankful to practice gratitude, those, those little things that make a big difference in our, just in how we feel on a daily basis.

Doing these things helps us recognize the happiness that we have and helps bring it to the surface. So one of the quotes from this book is…this was one of my takeaways:

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.

I decided to apply that this year. So starting in January, I started writing down in a gratitude journal, three things that I was thankful for each day. So just taking some time to think about the day and what happened and what I’m thankful for.

And I think just that little, that little practice helps us remember the things that, that went well in our day or the things that we you know, just kind of rush on by and don’t think about that much, but really that we were appreciative of those things when we think about it. So that was a good takeaway from the book.

I will say it was written in a way that really I started getting bored probably halfway through it. Just feeling like, okay. It just, it wasn’t written in a way that really grasped my attention. Like made me just want to keep reading and read more. Towards the end, it started to feel like he was summarizing other books or other you know, other, I dunno, theories or whatever.

The Love Languages. So he talks about that in, in one of the chapters and just things like that. It didn’t like…I didn’t love it. But I think it is a good reminder of just those little things that we can do. And so I think books like this are really good to read every once in a while, just to, to remind us of those little things that we can do to be happier on a daily basis.
