Teach yourself how to enjoy more happiness now!

In Be Happy, Robert Holden gives you a front-row seat to his eight-week happiness course - famously tested by independent scientists for the
BBC-TV documentary How to Be Happy. Written with his trademark
insight, compassion and humour, Robert guides you through a set of
scientifically proven principles and exercises that have been hailed as
'a genuine fast-track to happiness'.
Key themes include:
defining true happiness: give up the pursuit of happiness out
there and start following your joy
the happiness contract: increase your natural capacity for
prosperity and success
the receiving meditation: discover how to be so happy
that you almost feel guilty, but not quite!
the forgiveness principle: give up all hopes for a better
past and commit to living happily even after
the gift of happiness: use the power of happiness to
bless your life, let your relationships flourish, and help you
be a truly loving presence in the world

'This happiness training not only changes the way you feel;
it actually changes the way your brain functions.'
Professor Richard Davidson, University of Wisconsin-Madison
