    One thought on “The Happiness Makeover: How to Teach Yourself to Be Happy and Enjoy Every Day”

    1. this is a short little book that i picked up at work at one point during reading it, i realized that the book is largely composed of quotes and references to other books about happiness my first thought was, what a mooch she s just re hashing other people s ideas and occasionally adding personal anecdotes but the i read it, the i liked it other books on happiness where the authors do their own research projects and write about them tend to bog down somewhere around 3 4 of the way through just [...]

    2. I liked this book I found it most useful to read a couple chapters a day or to pick it up when I was in a bad mood The author does a great job of putting our lives, various situations, and happiness into perspective, and if you are like me and need reminders every once in a while, this book will definitely help I plan on keeping this book around, rereading it for reflection, and hopefully sharing it with others who need a little happiness boost as well

    3. The problem with this book is that 1 It points out a lot of things people do to be unhappy and says change them, without offering any real ideas or techniques to do soand 2 Most of the good ideas it does offer, and quite a few of its major points, are quoted from other self help books I am sure I would have been better off reading one of the books she quoted instead of this one.

    4. I can get information on happiness from reading the scriptures and implementing this into my life than I could ever get from this book By the way, I am a VERY HAPPY PERSON I was just curious about the title

    5. First, I would like to thank Red Wheel Weiser, LLC and for sending me a copy of this book as a First Reads giveaway winner This book could not have come at a better time At the time that I won, I had recently learned about the passing of a close family friend, and was in such a fog funk that I didn t even see the email that I had won a copy of the book Then, one night I was scrolling through my unread emails still in a daze and saw the email from that I d won It really is the little things in li [...]

    6. Great, great, great Quick read and really good ideas Of course there are some obvious statements, always are with these kinds of books But it was good, and helpful Because Brace yourselves here Sometimes I m just not happy Ahhhhhhh, I bet the shock you ve experienced with with this confession is great But I speak the truth Not everyone is as happy as you, yes, you, the one reading this right now Some of us have our own personal little hell, I mean struggles we move through from time to time So, [...]

    7. The book was an easy read It s good for those who are on the go and want something simple to get through, considering happiness is a very philosophical and psychological subject It givees very nice quotes within each chapter and explains some meanings of happiness, activities that can boost your happiness, and why some people are afraid to be happy, as described in one chapter Overall, a fairy nice and enjoyable read M.J Ryan gives nice concepts and stories on this matter, as well as in her othe [...]

    8. This upbeat and positive little book teaches that we are all responsible for our own happiness and there are ways to change the attitudes that become obstacles to happiness There were some excellent strategies and ideas in this book and I will be referring back to it often, especially on those days when I might not be feeling as happy as I could Highly recommended especially to anyone who wants to be happier

    9. Starts each chapter with a quote that s applicable For example the chapter on finding your tribe has There s no house like the house of belonging The chapter to touch the 10,000 Joys, be willing to Touch the 10,000 sorrows has the quote happiness would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness Carl Jung.

    10. Not a lot new here, nor does the author have a beautiful prose style, but still worth browsing Some of my favorites are practicing gratefulness, reminding yourself that this is not the end of the story, and learning to think optimistically To experience the 10,000 joys, the author quotes writer Jack Kornfield, you must be willing to touch the 10,000 sorrows.

    11. A pretty quick read and provided some good lessons that I can definitely carry with me It s a good little reminder for myself However, I felt like some anecdotes she provided were unnecessary and some chapters too short I did like the format of the book though The first part asks questions while the second part gives advice on what you can actively do.

    12. This book is much less superficial than it s cringe worthy title implies It s basically saying we can all be happier, here s why it s important and here are some ways to do it There are so many people who could also benefit from reading this one

    13. Perhaps worth it to learn about the Buddhist concept of mudita or sympathetic joy However, mostly it read like a crib sheet for an exam on happiness Still, it made me feel happier when I read it, which is than can be said for some books.

    14. This book was very good filled with great quotes, wisdom and ideas Well worth the approx 5 that I paid for it at Barnes Noble I am very happy with the investment I made with this book I shall reap the benefits for the rest of my life Highly recommended

    15. A fun short read that is inspiring after a long day of work It s always good to throw in a happy book amongst the serious ones This one does the trick and will make you wake up smiling A good refresher when one is needed.

    16. This is a wonderful little book It is rooted in psychology, but is a light read I liked it so much that I bought a copy so that I can always go back to it for reminders I expect that different parts will jump out at me each time I read it.

    17. Although there was nothing revolutionary about this book, it reminded me of things I know, but often choose not to acknowledge The key lies not in the reading of the book, but what you do with the ideas afterward.

    18. I keep this by my bedside for my early morning inspirational reading before I head out for the day I loved this book so much that I bought it, and her other books.

    19. Easy to read and understand A great complimentary reading for those who are relentlessly pursuing happiness.

    20. This book has flaws, but also some good reminders Its not perfect but I enjoyed it I m glad it fell into my lap at the library.
