We rated this book:


Do you want to live longer? Well, feeling happy might help you do that. The Positive Shift examines what makes us happy and, in some cases, what makes us unhappy. How we think about ourselves and our social conditioning plays a part in our happiness, and there are ways in which we can shift our thinking and behaviors to find more happiness in life.

By answering a few questions at the beginning of this book, you will find out whether you are a born optimist or a pessimist. In the second part of the book, you will find tips to help shift your mindset. For example, spending more time in nature has been shown to increase focus, memory, and mood. Feeling gratitude, volunteering, and having more shared experiences with friends and family are also ways to increase happiness and, in the long run, live longer.

The Positive Shift is a well-written, thoughtful book that provides a look at a large number of studies which show that increased happiness can have a significant impact on the quality of life. The examples mentioned in this book are easy to follow and helpful for mastering the mindset needed for a better life.
