Book Description

16 Jan 2014

Popular myths about happiness directly contribute to our epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression - and sojme popular remedies are making it even worse! In his original bestselling self-help book, Dr Russ Harris revealed how millions of people are unwittingly caught in 'The Happiness Trap'. He then provided an effective means to escape: ACT (or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) based on the principles of mindfulness.

Now, in The Happiness Trap Pocketbook, Dr Harris joins forces with acclaimed illustrator and self-help author, Bev Aislett, to produce this illustrated, engaging and genuinely helpful guide to breaking free of 'the happiness trap' and finding a true sense of wellbeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars useful 1 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not like other self help books i have seen, although I am not an aficionado as I tend to be snotty about fast fixes for the psyche. However, it is based on reliable research and the techniques in it do genuinely work. It's not a book to read through, though - it is a workbook where you pause and try to practise ways of stopping tormenting yourself and getting on with life, an outcome which many people would like.The basic premise is that into each life some rain must fall and attempting Positive Thinking is only going to make things worse. Paradoxically, accepting this is the start of learning to live comfortably with rainfall.

Forget being for adolescents - best for all ages.
Pictures and diagrams, and no wordy jargon and prose - perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Guide To ACT 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I already own Russ' other books as I find his style very easy going. This small pictorial edition of The Happiness Trap is a handy little refresher when needed, and can easily be read in one longish sitting if needed, which makes it perfect for those times when life starts beating you down again.

This book is simple and easy to understand.
I was looking for a book to help with anxiety and this has certainly helped. I highly recommend it to anyone caught in the trap that toy must be happy all the time or wanting to be more self aware.
