You Can Be Happy

Book Description

Do you feel that there’s room for a bit more happiness in your life?
A lot more even?

Then here’s the good news: you have much more control over your happiness than you probably think. And in this book, you’ll discover the often simple, but easily overlooked, steps you can take to reclaim more of those good feelings.


What’s more, every single suggested action in this book has been scientifically proven to have a positive and lasting effect on happiness. There’s no hype here, just plenty of real hope.

Better still, there’s no need for radical life change and no complicated programme to follow.

Instead you’ll find a raft of small and simple steps that will, over time, add up to a life with more pleasure and meaning - and with fewer negative emotions dragging you down.


Nobody else can make you happy. But you can. Here’s all the help you need.
