Drawing on her own groundbreaking research with thousands of men and women, research psychologist and University of California professor of psychology Sonja Lyubomirsky has pioneered a detailed yet easy-to-follow plan to increase happiness in our day-to-day lives. The How of Happiness is a different kind of happiness book, one that offers a comprehensive guide to understanding what happiness is, and isn't, and what can be done to bring us all closer to the happy life we envision for ourselves. Using more than a dozen uniquely formulated happiness-increasing strategies, The How of Happiness offers a new and potentially life-changing way to understand our innate potential for joy and happiness as well as our ability to sustain it in our lives.
For those interested in a step by step guide to connecting with and developing their innate ability to be happy, this is proven to be a good place to start. Sonja Lyubomirsky is also interested in how gratitude has proven to be a fast track to happiness and she has become (along with Professor Emmons) one of the front runners in this field.
