What if you could practice, and access, happiness at any time?
When were you last truly happy? How did 'happy' feel? Some people find that being happy is a natural state of being, but for others it's a constant struggle to find contentment with all of life's stresses and upheavals.
Bestselling author and psychologist Noa Belling has designed a variety of 'happiness workouts' to help you do just that. Based on scientific studies of biochemistry and neuroscience, this book teaches you how to cultivate happiness by honing certain physical skills such as strength, flexibility, fluidity, grounding and warm-heartedness. Deeply rooted within your body, these skills foster resilience, confidence and creativity to help you meet life's challenges skillfully.
A happiness workout is made up of everyday quick practices, complemented by physical exercise programs that are designed to be accessible no matter your age or level of fitness. Try it out and feel how it optimises your brain function and reliably turns things around!
