Happy Mind, Happy Life
The search for happiness is fundamental for all humans, and the answers lie within the depths of your mind. What is happiness? What causes it? How do you hold on to it? What makes it go away? These questions have led to many philosophical debates over thousands of years.
The philosophers of Greece were famous for their quest to define the pillars of "the good life". Faith-based movements have painstakingly crafted dogmas and prescribed behaviors in pursuit of ultimate peace and joy. Academic studies have been concentrated on finding the answer to "the optimal life experience". Governments have professed to craft policies to promote the overall well-being of their citizens. Every day, ordinary dinner table discussions are, at heart, dialogues in search of a happy life.
We All Experience Happiness Differently
What makes one person happy may make another miserable. There is no one key to happiness for everyone. Instead, the answers lie within you. In The Happy Mind, you'll learn to find your own personal answers to your most important questions. What makes you happy? What changes can you make to bring more happiness into your life? And how can you let go of old habits, beliefs, and situations that no longer fulfill you?
The aim of this book is not to push a specific definition of happiness. Instead, you'll discover valuable insights that will allow you to create lasting happiness instead of being driven by short-term pleasure-seeking.
