100 ways to happiness by Dr Ilona Boniwell & Bridget Grenville-Cleave

Just how happy are you? Is mindfulness your mantra? Are you living your life to the fullest?

Here’s an interactive self-help book that addresses 100 aspects of the human experience with no-nonsense, sound advice to help you make the most of being alive. 

Habits, lifestyle choices, work stress, our surroundings, diet and hobbies are just some of the areas that are broken into bite-sized morsels distilling the very latest research on human happiness, to create a highly readable format that allow the reader to assess and understand trouble-spots in their own life and techniques to increase their “happiness quotient”.

Things that are most (or least) likely to make you lead a happier life are discussed through probing questions, quick tips and happiness questionnaires which are supported by references to psychological research and scientific studies. 

The authors themselves are academics, leading experts on Positive Psychology, with lots of experience in applying their work to business and social settings.

If, like me, you are interested in the workings of your own mind, and feel the need to live with awareness, but are not necessarily into all things spacey and new-agey, you’ll find this an interesting, relevant and most do-able guide to help grow your happiness with your own hands.
