It's safe to say that 2016 was a tough year and, with the start of 2017, things don't seem much brighter. From political upsets to the loss of major icons, and anger-filled social media feeds to daily violent news reports, it's understandable that stress levels are running high.
Internationally recognized positive psychology coach and talk radio show host Lisa Cypers Kamen's powerful message of how to take control of your own happiness is not only relevant, but desperately needed. "It's not enough to just think happy thoughts," says Cypers Kamen. "We must take action to create happiness."
And thankfully she's sharing just how to do that in her new book, Are We Happy Yet? Eight Keys to Unlocking a Joyful Life, a no-nonsense fusion of science and heart, filled with proven tools and techniques for creating your own "happiness revolution."
In Are We Happy Yet? Cypers Kamen reveals her breakthrough system for cultivating sustainable happiness and well-being, regardless of life's drama, trauma, or challenges. Through practical tips, tools, and exercises, she shows readers exactly how to boost their "Happiness-Factor" to new levels, and tap into the joy and peace they deserve.
Through her wide-ranging, decades-long career, Cypers Kamen has redefined - for herself and many others, worldwide - the pursuit of happiness, even during life's most challenging times. Are We Happy Yet? draws on that expertise and shows readers how to take the applicable principles of positive psychology, and start using it in their daily lives.
"Positive psychology focuses on what's right with life here, now and tomorrow, rather than ruminating on what's wrong with it and what happened in the past," says Cypers Kamen. "Are We Happy Yet? helps readers embrace the absolute best parts of life, every day."
Through the pages of Are We Happy Yet?, Cypers Kamen teaches readers how to:
• Accept the past for what it is-a reference point, not a destination
• Embrace the truth that, while life is tough, you can be happy
• Transform your relationship with yourself from enemy to ally
• Appreciate why less is often more
• Focus on what's right with your life, not what's wrong
• Control the only person you can-yourself!
• Invest in yourself to become more mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit
• Use your newly discovered joy to become a more positive and productive influence
• And much more!
