Maureeen Gaffneys Book Flourishing I have enjoyed and a book I pick up for a read from time to time to keep me focused on myself and my well-being/
chapters when desired or necessary. I also bought it form my Sony ereader, and having discarded that in favour of a Kindle I also bought a copy for that. I would not be without it. The chapter on attention alone is worth the purchase and perusal.
I consider myself as being perfectly healthy from a mental point of view, but that does not mean that I can't improve my mental health, just as I can improve my physical health. As such, this book can be of interest to anyone.
It is by far the best self help book I have ever read. It is extremely well researched as you would expect from an expert such as Maureen Gaffney. The book is very very informative and full of excellent and practical advice.
I highly recommend the book.
I found myself thinking of innumerable people who could benefit from reading it! 'Now he or she really needs to improve her positive to negative ratio!', but actually, we all could.
