Product description

Review

"Carefully and creatively presents techniques that anyone can use to undermine struggle, avoidance, and loss of the moment. Harris systematically explores how we get into the 'happiness trap' and then shines a powerful beacon showing us another way forward."--Steven Hayes, PhD, author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life
"Eminently practical and readable. This book reveals that when calibrating one's life according to acceptance and valued action, happiness is a pleasant sideshow in the larger carnival of an engaged and purposeful existence."--Zindel Segal, PhD, author of The Mindful Way through Depression
"An exciting alternative to the usual approach of so many self-help books. Harris explains how we can work with ourselves as we are, rather than aggressively trying to alter ourselves. I'm impressed by the simple and effective methods of ACT."--David Richo, PhD, author of The Five Things We Cannot Change

Book Description

A ground breaking book that offers new techniques using mindfulness skills to enable you to experience and full and happy life and to overcome depression and anxiety.

I'm a big fan of values driven behaviours. Discovering how being true to your own values could bring "happiness" (contentment, acceptance, reduced conflict.....) has been a breakthrough and a benefit to my psychological well-being and physical health as a consequence. "The Happiness Trap" uses common language, fun and relatable examples to describe what could otherwise be seen as complex or difficult concepts. The point is it all makes complete sense and there are actions you can take now to introduce fulfilment to your life. Excellent book.
