Publisher's Summary

From Australia’s Dr Happy, this is a guidebook to the power of becoming a bit more lost – to getting out of our own heads and going off the beaten track.

Dr Tim Sharp has been researching, writing and speaking about happiness for decades, as one of Australia’s leaders of the positive psychology movement. But in recent years, he’s realised that maybe he’s been a bit more lost than he wanted to admit. And that might actually be a good thing.

A large and growing body of research highlights the value of getting ‘lost’ to improve our resilience and our mental health. That could mean literally wandering outdoors in nature or letting our minds do the wandering by sitting with negative thoughts and unpleasant emotions, rather than constantly trying to fight or push them away.

Packed with psychological insights, practical tips and personal stories from Tim’s life, Lost & Found is a new kind of self-help book that invites all of you to the table: the bad and the good, your failures and your successes, challenges and breakthroughs. By sitting with discomfort, we allow ourselves to become more authentic and vulnerable – and by becoming lost, we find our true selves.

Dr Tim Sharp is Australia's very own 'Dr Happy', at the forefront of the positive psychology movement and founder of the Happiness Institute. He has run one of Sydney's most respected clinical psychology practices, a highly regarded executive coaching practice, has taught at most of the major universities in Australia and is currently Adjunct Professor at both UTS and RMIT.

He is also the bestselling author of a number of books, including The Good Sleep Guide, The Happiness Handbook, 100 Ways to Happiness and 100 Ways to Happy Children, and the popular Habits for Happiness audiobook series with Audible. He regularly appears on Australian TV, featuring on Today, The Morning Show, Studio 10, The Project and many other programs.

let's get practical

in a world where realness seems out of reach or the "thanks for sharing" has been mistakenly taken the wrong way - I found the delivery down to earth, practical, sensible and hopeful 👏👏👏, Some recognition on how people living with disability manage in what can be very negative narratives would have made this current book even better seeing as we've just had the Royal Commission into Disability. I feel this book was like a springboard to bounce on and jump confidently into the unknown of becoming lost and found, thank you 🙏 thank you for sharing your vulnerability!
