What an incredible premise- apparently supported by research. How you think and breathe and react to situations can actually affect the wiring of your brain! There are practices that can help you in developing calmness and joy in living. Fifty-two practices are described. I think the average person would respond to about five activities, but, if repeated, these practices can improve life. I'm trying a few! ( )

‘Just One Thing’ was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Smith Publicity.

This was a well written positive little how-to guide on how to be mindful of your happiness on a daily basis. This is a novel for everyone. It’s an easily understandable guide that doesn’t go into the ‘science’ of anything or even religion. This is definitely a great read for anyone interested in trying to make their days just a bit better.

The first time I read this novel I read it front to back and I enjoyed it. I did understand; however, that some of the situations the author would discuss didn’t necessarily apply to me at the time of reading. This is going to be a great book to keep on hand for whenever I encounter a situation where a little guidance is needed. I have a feeling the ‘Relax’ chapter will have its work cut out for it though. :)
