Being happy is within reach now

We sometimes forget that life is better with a more or less constant stream of joy bubbling up inside us. Our ‘normal’ life can easily settle into a parade of low-level frustrations and aches and pains. Life doesn’t have to be that way. We can settle for our current situation because we’ve tried our best but ended up too tired and sore before we could break free and move to the “next level”. Hey, that’s ok but there’s a better way. Sleeping easily and well, eating good, tasty food, enjoying our work and building satisfying relationships is right there waiting for us. But we have to get out of our own way first.

Of course, we believe our own instant judgements are accurate. But there are common patterns of distortions in those instant judgements. Distorted thoughts create distorted feelings. When we learn about these predictable thought errors, our common feelings of dissatisfaction and unease start to seem less plausible. We stop believing our own ‘normal’ narrative.


How to

Well come on, enough introduction already, how do we get there? The book Feeling Good has sold five million copies and has 4.5 stars from 8,044 ratings on Amazon. It’s the result of a lot of research and workshopping. Tested on people, if you will.

Feeling Good is engaging and well written and helps us to lift ourselves up. There’s plenty of interesting and practical advice to lift the fog of ‘normal’ automatic patterns of thinking and feeling and allow a steady stream of joy to come back into your life.
