A great introduction to positive psychology,
This review is from: Positive Psychology for Overcoming Depression (Paperback)
You don't need to be depressed to benefit from this book. It's full of realistic techniques to help you flourish and reach your potential in life, whatever your emotional starting point. One of my favourites is asking yourself three simple questions: `What's going right in my life right now? What is there to be pleased about? What is there to be grateful for?' It's easy to do and a guaranteed way to lift your mood at any point in the day. What I also love is that it's fantastic value for money, as for the cost of one book, you also get the condensed wisdom of several others, in an easy-to-understand format. In fact, it works as a concise and readable introduction to positive psychology and it's a great source of ideas for further reading - I have this book to thank for introducing me to the wonderful Carol Dweck and her inspiring book Mindset. Highly recommended.
