My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free eBook of ‘Happy Every Day – Simple, Effective Ways to Better Days’ from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.
26 simple, realistic and actionable strategies to help you become happier and live with more passion and satisfaction.
It’s too easy to give in to the daily grind and become filled with stress, anxiety and anxiousness, and then become creatively blocked, unproductive and unhappy. But when you take a few specifically designed moments each day for yourself you can re-energize your enthusiasm, motivation, and passion.
When happy you are naturally more productive and creative.
If you are like most people, then you are conditioned to wait for the next shoe to drop. It’s not your fault, and there’s no one to blame. It’s just the way it is and there’s nothing you can do about it. Or is there?
Happiness is a state of a mind, and you alone have the power to decide how happy you can be. You just might not know it yet.
These strategies will help you recognize and transform your thinking into a positive mindset that has you excited to start each day and live your passion to the fullest. Light, easy-to-digest tips will guide you to happiness not just today, but every day.
It is true: There are lots of guidelines out there, promising you miracles beyond your imagination. This book is certainly not one of them. It is a guide to – as the subtitle very appropriately shows – ‘simple, effective ways to better days’.
Happy Every Day is clearly structured. It consists of two parts “Part 1: Good Things” and “Part 2: Moments in Time” – and it works for those willing to accept the guidance.
Every topic starts with a quote, followed by an explanation and experiences Bryan made in his life. He provides useful hints and suggests journal entries. I would definitely not categorize myself as unhappy. Despite that, I started a journal. When reading this journal, I realized that I knew prior to my entries that some of these apparently small things that make me happy are really impressive on paper. Even if not everything you are going to read in Happy Every Day will be complete news to you, the collection and structure of the sections provides impressive – yet very easy to follow – insights.
Happy Every Day is not too short and not too blown up, therefore it is an attractive read.
