The Happy Tips Book and One-Liners for Life by Susan Spira

The Happy Tips Book: Try a Little Happy Tip...or 100  by Susan Spira
ISBN: 978-0988238510
Publisher: Susan Spira
Published Feb 4, 2013
Paperback, 108 pages

I work with seniors and I facilitate support groups so I'm attracted to literature that I can use in my groups. The Happy Tips Book is a neat little book that contains one short tip on each page that inspires positive, happy thoughts and actions. Here are some of the ones I liked:

  • Moving out of a comfort zone always means learning and growth.
  • Don't waste your energy with toxic people.
  • Make your partner your one true friend and hold that relationship sacred.
  • Make special time each day to concentrate on laughter.
  • Embrace the age you are. Live your life and not your age.
Just like this author's book One-Liners for Life, this is a great book to carry in your purse, share with your friends or use to meditate when you have a few spare moments during the day. I use it in my day programs with seniors as conversation starters and in my support groups to encourage reflection. The author states in her introduction regarding the tips, "They are simple tips: easy to pick and choose. They are tips that give permission and tips that spark or prompt introspection. It only takes one spark to make a huge difference."

It's true that many of the tips in this book is advice I've heard before but it's the kind that one doesn't tire of hearing. On the contrary, the reminders are good. And I love the cover of this book. So attractive and meaningful in its simplicity!



One-Liners for Life: Simply Profound Messages by Susan Spira
ISBN: 978-0988238596
Publisher: Susan Spira
Published Feb 3, 2013
Paperback, 66 pages

Just as I mentioned in my review of The Happy Tips Book, I enjoy reading literature that focuses on well-being. One-Liners for Life is a small book filled with over 400 one-liners, some of which are little gems that inspire, motivate and remind. Reading through this book, these are just some of the ones I really liked:
  • Daily re-gift kindness.
  • Perception: one size doesn't fit all.
  • Don't let self-doubt rain on your brain.
  • Learning is a lifelong challenge.
  • You don't know everything.
  • The sign of being a grown-up is when you are no longer tempted to find a new you because you are in love with the old you.
This is a great book to carry in your purse, share with your friends or use to meditate when you have a few spare moments during the day. I use it in my day programs with seniors as conversation starters. It's clear that the author's message is about enhancing one's life and making room for self-growth and positivity. What's not to like about that?
