Do you want to be happier?When was the last time you said "I'm really happy" and meant it? If it's been a while, then you are not alone. For most of us, happiness only occurs at peak moments; it is not something we experience every day. No one knows that better than psychologist and author Tom Glaser. Following the unhappiest period of his adult life, Tom set out to determine how happy people got that way. He found nine exceptionally happy but otherwise ordinary people. What they told him became the basis for Full Heart Living. Your happiness is waiting. Come along as Tom reveals the simple yet profound everyday choices truly happy people make and how you can incorporate them into your life. Take your first step. As Anne Frank said, "Whoever is happy will make others happy too." With Full Heart Living, be prepared to: * Connect more deeply with yourself and others * Live more fully in the present moment * Increase your self-acceptance * Discover how good self-care is important to happiness * Uncover your passions and offer them in the service of others* Develop happiness resilience Full Heart Living will inspire you to connect more deeply with others, yourself, and your passions. See how full your heart can be."This is the hero's journey. The interviewees are the teachers and the guides. There's the invitation and the calling, these horrible things that happened. Full Heart Living is the return of the wisdom that Tom learned along the way."~Patty Hlava, PhD, LMFT, author of Cultivating Gratitude and Living Gratitude"Full Heart Living is an outstanding contribution to the growing literature on happiness. Filled with warmth, curiosity and hope, this book tells a story of real people living authentically, where being happy is more a natural outcome than a goal to be driven toward. In these pages you will find clear, simple and achievable steps toward your own authentically happy life." ~Henry Emmons, MD, author of The Chemistry of Joy… (more)
