It centres around 10 Keys, or practical actions, that will help to make your life, and those around you, happier and more fulfilling. Action for Happiness is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create a happier society for everybody by bringing people together to take practical action to create more happiness around them. Vanessa King, board member and lead positive psychologist for Action for Happiness, has drawn on the latest scientific studies from psychology and other sciences, creating 10 key areas that research consistently shows tends to make our lives more positive and satisfying.
It's a menu rather than a prescription and the framework allows people to focus on what would make the biggest difference for them at any point in their lives. Written in an engaging and friendly style, the book will look at each of the Keys in turn, offering ideas for practical actions and how to apply them in your daily life - at home, at work and in the world around you. Included are reflections, questions, information and other resources, and Vanessa also lightly looks at the broader implications for society as a whole.
From taking steps to a more positive approach to life, to explaining why showing gratitude helps you to build positive relationships as well as how to bounce back after tough times by preparing a toolkit of actions, this book will help you to make the most out of your life.
