The past can hold us back and fear of the future can keep us stuck in place. By letting go of fear and incorporating mindfulness into your day-to-day life, you can accept the present and, in essence, Choose Happy.
Happiness can seem elusive despite its seeming ubiquity out in the world, especially on social media. In Choose Happy, certified Neuro-linguistic Programming Practitioner and member of the British Psychological Society Sarah Gregg uses the practices of positive psychology to gently guide you through your past, present, and future to improve your well-being for a life full of joy, contentedness, and hope. By addressing the common roadblocks to happiness, you too can develop sustainable happiness.
Just follow the three sections (and each subsection) to find your way to happy.
