Can you be happy for 100 days in a row? Those who have completed the challenge of spending 100 days intentionally finding or creating a happy moment each day—whether through trying something new or just seeing their daily life in a new way—added up to long-lasting feelings of optimism, gratitude, and satisfaction that far exceeded the sums of their parts. This daily guide will help readers find happiness in their everyday lives. The 100 directives, big and small, will inspire the reader to take action ('Compliment a stranger,' 'Hike to a scenic spot,' 'Be the first to apologize'), with text explaining both why the action contributes to happiness and how best to implement it. Sprinkled throughout are essays that delve into the science of happiness on topics ranging from meditation to music therapy to physical activity. Author: Dmitry Golubnichy Paperback 6 in. x 6 in.
