Summary:

Have you been looking for something new like a new job, a new company or a new career to make you happier and still feel the same a few months after you get it?
If so, then maybe it’s time to try a new approach. Author and Career Happiness Coach, Vicki Morris, is here to show us that we have the power to be happy now –within ourselves in the present moment. All we have to do is change our mindset and a few daily habits.

Happy Habits

I love the idea of being happy and having good habits so this book called Happy Habits sounded interesting. However I was also reluctant to believe that one book could make me happier. I’ve read happiness books before and they haven’t helped.

The thing that I didn’t realize about this book is that it’s not meant to be read and forgotten. It’s an 8-week program that slowly brings new habits into your life. These new habits are not something that will take a long time or be really hard to implement. They take just 4 minutes a day! Who doesn’t have 4 minutes?

The system is based on the method by Dr. BJ Fogg where you add 3 new 1-minute habits to your day and take 1 minute to log their completion. Then the next week you keep one of those habits and add two more. Using this method, you will have two habits at the end of 8 weeks that you have been doing every day for 8 weeks and so they will be ingrained habits.

With some self-help books, I read about the system and methodology and think “that sounds nice” and then close the book and move on. But I have planned out my first week and am ready to start on Monday!
