Richard Nicholls has just published ’15 Minutes to Happiness’, a book that outlines simple exercises to reduce negativity and increase happiness.
As a radical optimist who’s lived by ‘Make Happy Choices’ for some time now, I think his book is worth a read. Guilt, worry, regret and stress are part of all our lives, it’s learning how to deal with them, reduce them and ultimately replace them with positive thoughts that make us happier.
An example of one thing he suggests.
Put Yourself First. This is not selfish. It is for everyone’s benefit. A happy you is the you everyone wants to see, and they’ll be happy about that. If you constantly put others ahead of you, it can lead to lack of self-esteem, stress and fatigue. Learn to say no. Check the book out.
