Publisher's Summary

Yes, Virginia, happiness is a skill (or more accurately a set of skills), and yes you can absolutely get better at them.
Master these skills and you will be better able to manage stress and anxiety. You'll actively choose to focus on building positive relationships. You'll sharpen your ability to be mindful and fully present. You'll recognize how incredibly often you are the recipient of deliberate kindness and you will experience intense swellings of gratitude. You'll strive for ways in which you can live with more significance. Overall, you will become more alive, awake, and aware. This book will help you turn these skills into habits, and the habits into a positive healthy lifestyle.
What's most amazing is this is all backed by science.
Top-tier universities have been leading the charge with breakthrough research in the emerging area of positive psychology, a new branch within the long established field of psychology.
What if the things holding you back from greater happiness and success were so simple you could make just a few small tweaks and immediately see positive change in your life? And what if they were so deceptively simple, you’ve gone your whole life unaware of them?
You've been programmed and conditioned repeatedly by negative forces. Are you ready to be more deliberate about your mental conditioning? Want to get rid of stress, anxiety, and worry? Looking to overcome fear, discouragement, loneliness, or low self-esteem? These are all mindset issues - sometimes deeply ingrained, long-established limiting mindsets caused by years of unhealthy, unconscious thought patterns. It's not too late to change your story. It's not too late to live the life you are capable of living. You can deliberately condition your mind to focus on the thought patterns of society's most successful, most resilient people. You can train yourself to think like an optimist.
