Get happy tip: Get happy books

Best Nonfiction Book 5

A while back, a reader asked me to suggest a few good books on the subjects I write about and since she just asked so nicely, and since nearly every single day,  books change my life, I thought I’d post an answer for her—and all y’all—here.

So: here are a few of my favorite books about getting happy (really—I cannot recommend any of them highly enough):

The Science of Happiness by Stefan Klein

The How of Happiness by Sonja Lyubomirsky

The Compass of Pleasure by David J. Linden

Happiness: The Science Behind Your Smile by Daniel Nettle

Happiness: Unlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth by Ed Diener and Robert Biswas-Diener

Despite my recommendations, though, the truth is that the best books are the ones you’re personally looking for.

So: my get happy tip for the day: decide what you want to learn a lot more about—what knowledge you’d like to have that would make you happier, whether trivial or profound—then go to the library and get a stack of books on that subject and start reading until you’re an expert on it.

It’s challenging and so fulfilling.

Oh – then come back and tell me what you learned. I’d love to hear about it!
