I strongly believe in positive thinking. It's what has gotten me through tough times and what helps me on a daily basis. But there are times when I just feel weak and cannot muster up the energy to do anything because I feel like the whole world is crashing down on me. That's when I appreciate books such as Ingrid Kelada's 21 Days to Happiness.
I've read several books on positive thinking and what I like best about this book is that although it provides stats and factual statements (which I liked learning), it is not bogged down by too many. Instead, it's a practical user-friendly book that allows you to put into practice the tips and helpful habits right away. Within days of reading the book, I could see the difference in my mood because I was more in tune and aware as to what I could do to counteract those negative thoughts.
I now begin my day with thinking about 3 things for which I am grateful. I play music that I enjoy while I work. I watch a funny 20-minute show on Netflix with my hubby and make sure to laugh uninhibited. I've begun to read a book on minimalism and have decluttered certain parts of my home. But I run my own business and have two teen kids, so I tend to worry and I have a lot of work and stress on my plate. Kelada's practical tips on time, worry, work, and sleep are truly helpful and I am working on implementing them in my daily and weekly routine.
I'm a stickler for order and I appreciated the book's clean layout, making it easy to read. I read the digital version, which includes links to websites, apps and videos. Again, I found this information to be practical and useful. Each chapter ends with questions to ponder over the daily practice just discussed in the chapter. There is space to write your answers, much like a workbook. For this reason, I would prefer also getting the print copy so that I can use it this way. And I will get a copy for each of my kids too. The sooner they start implementing good habits, the better.
21 Days to Happiness is the kind of book I like to keep handy by my bedside so that I can read a portion every day. It's a book that can be re-read so that one can take the time to assimilate the chockful of beneficial information. I'm a firm believer in neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change. With such books as this one, a person who wants to be happy can do so by developing good daily habits that foster healthy living and happiness. This one's a keeper!

My pleasure. I love books that enhance my life.Delete
Thanks for this invaluable book which would provide me with a great deal of advice, and practical help.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a motivating read!ReplyDelete
In what I now call a stunning moment of self-realization, I told my mother once that my room was always cluttered because my mind was always cluttered. Clutter is a downer for me, so I've spent much of my life unhappy, or living in a 'gray world'. I want some color in my life. It sounds like this book has many good ideas. I am implementing the "I am grateful for ... " habit today.ReplyDelete
Yeah...I don't like clutter either, and like you, when my environment is cluttered so is my mind. This book does have many useful and practical tips that are easy to implement.Delete
