Happier Thinking is an inspiring little read. I have read it this morning whilst enjoying a coffee, in my back garden, in the glorious sunshine.
This a self-help book but is unique in the sense that it is the author’s own coping strategies with stress and anxiety. It is very reader friendly and almost made me feel like I was having an informal chat with the author, discussing how to turn negative thoughts in to positive ones in the hope of living a happier, less stressful, life. Much like the chats we might share with our partners, family, and friends. They always make us feel better, in general, and this book has that same feel good factor. We all need these chats sometimes as although the advice in this book might seem obvious, we do tend to forget it when things are not going our way. I will certainly be putting some of this advice into practice in the future.
I especially liked the ‘Be Kind’ chapter. It has an important message for us all. I quote, “Happier Thinking goes hand in hand with kindness. Kindness to all including yourself.” We all need to remember to be more kind to ourselves as well as each other.
I very much recommend this book to you if you suffer with stress and/or anxiety, or even if you don’t.
I think these words will in inspire you either way.
Many thanks to the author for my review copy.

Changing how you think is possible. I wasn’t always so sure that was true until I experienced it myself, but I know now we don’t have to just accept unhappiness. Not always anyway. This book is my collection of tips and suggestions that have helped me achieve happier thinking. It’s sort of a gym for my mind. I’d love to tell you it was easier than the real gym but well… it’s not really. It takes time, effort, and practice but it’s absolutely well worth the rewards.
happy reading 🙂
