The harder we try to achieve happiness, the more elusive it becomes. In the process of trying, we find we are working harder, longer, and less productively, creating not happiness but stress and anxiety. What can be done? In I Want to Be Happy, Harriet Griffey shows how everyone can achieve happiness, whatever their age, and whether or not they have been born with ‘the cheerful gene’. From resting to having fun, eating properly to getting a good night’s sleep, there’s a lot we can do to improve our happiness.
