Everyone wants to be happy, yet so many people are the opposite of that, with increasing numbers of anti-depressants being dispensed each year. Clearly we need a new approach to life. Happy for No Reason presents startling new ideas and a practical programme that will change the way we look at creating happiness in our lives. Marci Shimoff combines the best in cutting-edge scientific research into happiness with interviews with over 100 genuinely happy people, and lays out a powerful, holistic, seven-step formula for raising our 'happiness set point'. Our happiness levels are like a neuro-physiological thermostat - we can actually re-programme ourselves to a higher level of peace and wellbeing as happiness is dependent on internal, not external, factors. With endorsements from celebrities such as Goldie Hawn, Richard Gere, Jimmy Carter and Susan Sarandon, Happy for No Reason will set readers quickly and easily on a path to lasting joy.
