Habits of Happiness

By Wendy Ulrich

Our Father’s plan for us is often referred to as “the great plan of happiness,” but we sometimes struggle to feel as happy as we’d like. Are there really some simple things we could do to feel happier?
You may not have thought that such suggestions as “Don’t even try to get motivated to exercise” and “Stop hoping to find friends” would show up in a book on happiness, but those are just a couple of the “habits of happiness” Dr. Wendy Ulrich invites readers to consider.
The perfect blend of scientific research, engaging anecdotes, and practical advice that you might not have expected can help you discover new ways to feel a little better about life.

This is one of those small one-sitting reads from Time Out for Women, a gathering of (you guessed it) women, usually member of the LDS religion. I enjoyed this one in particular because it give suggestions and ideas for being happy and not just generalities. She talks about going and doing things instead of hoping and wishing for them to just happen. It’s all about the choices we make and how much we really want certain things in our lives. The key to happiness is our choices and ultimate actions. If you want friends, make them. If you want to exercise do it. Again, it’s a good solid motivating read about what happiness is and how you can gather more of it into your daily life.

I give it a 3.5 out of 5
