The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff shows readers how to achieve happiness NOW—without solving your problems first.
Stop waiting for the best part of your life to begin, or for things get better soon. Dr. Richard Carlson, the author who helped millions of readers stop sweating the small stuff, reminds us all You Can Be Happy No Matter What.
Interactive Edition: In this edition, people can experience the book in a wholly new way with Carlson’s narration of illuminating passages about living joyfully in the present moment. You’ll discover how understanding five principles—Thought, Moods, Separate Realities, Feelings, and the Present Moment—allows for a new way of living without repressing natural emotions or allowing thoughts or feelings to overwhelm you.
Every moment of every day, our minds are working to make sense out of what we see and experience. Yet this is one of the least understood principles in our psychological makeup. Carlson’s breakthrough work in understanding the nature of thought can be the foundation to a fully functional life. This interactive book aids anyone in understanding the ups and downs of life and how to build resilience. Most importantly, Carlson reminds us not to let the downside get in the way of living joyfully, despite the daily challenges we all face. In his own words, “Happiness is a state of mind, not a set of circumstances.”
