The How of Happiness – Summary

Thank you for taking this little trip with me through the 5 “HOWS” and the 12 happiness boosting activities in “The How of Happiness” by Sonja Lyubomirsky.

I wanted to end with some summary notes from my perspective.

#1 – An acknowledgment to Sonja Lyubomirsky, for doing her research and writing this book.  I have found it an amazing resource and it was really the thing that got be on to Happiness Coaching.

#2 – Remember that not all of these activities may fit all people and you need to choose what will work best for you.

#3 – Happiness is worth taking the time to work toward.  It will bring, not only greater joy and zest to life, but also increased productivity, health, and improved relationships.

#4 – Persistence, as always, is key.  You have to stick with it for the long run to continue to benefit from these activities.  If you give up after a few weeks because you’re not happier yet, you are selling yourself short.  Keep it up, and soon the benefits will come in and also the activity will get easier.  Remember what we learned from “Galaxy Quest” – Never give up, never surrender!

Finally, I’ll put my offer out there.  If you stumble at any point along the way, if you need some inspiration or assistance, or if you just want someone to talk to about happiness, that’s what I am here for as a coach.  I would love to hear from you and talk about happiness and your journey.  So feel free to contact me any time.

I’ll end by saying that this journey, going through this book again, was enlightening for me too.  Through this I’ve managed to discover some new things about myself and my business, that I think are really cool.  I’ll be posting more about this soon, as well as some of the topics that I realized I needed to talk more about during this review.

Until then, keep laughing, and have a great life!
