Stay happy—no matter how much life throws at you!

Happiness expert and Oprah columnist Karen Salmansohn presents a collection of 50 inspirational inner peptalks to boost your confidence, attitude, and mood. These peptalks are different than affirmations because they’re feisty, fun and memorable--and will thereby stick in your brain like a catchy song. You’ll naturally want to keep repeating them, thereby changing your neural pathways so you’re inclined to think positive thoughts, which lead to positive habits, which lead to a positively happy life!

Whether you’re feeling stressed, need motivation, are dealing with haters, or need to turn your tale of woe into a tale of wow, THINK HAPPY’s instant peptalks and whimsical illustrations will grump-proof your brain so you can move forward with optimism, resilience, and plain ol’ fabulousness.

Forget your troubles, come on get happy!

It took me maybe a day to connect the mood shift I had after reading this book. I was in a really bad mood, and was pretty much on the brink of either shutting down or lashing out. Or both.
It's always bad when I know I'm doing it too.

Then I started reading through this book and a lot of it hit me in just the right way. Like I said above; I didn't even realize it was happening. Suddenly my mood improved, all negative thoughts were gone, and I was feeling pretty inspired. I'm not sure when I realized my bad mood was gone but all thoughts went to this book.
It did take some convincing, but not for long. It really was too great a coincidence.

There's so much goodness within these pages, that I don't think I'll ever get enough of it.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
