A lot of good "food for thought" in this book. Dr Lombardo discusses a few things that i should do everyday that i just don't get to do if i am busy. I am finding it really easy to incorporate some of the core messages of this book into my day when i feel like i am getting off-sides and need to get back to that "happy place". I liked this book so much and thought it had such a good message that i bought it for a few friends and family that i thought would appreciate it! they all did! Definitely worth checking this book out!!

I really wasn't in the market for a self-help book, if that's what you'd call it, when I happened upon this book. In fact, I consider myself to be a relatively happy person - with lots of good fortune, family and friends. However, after reading just a few pages from Dr. Lombardo's book, I really starting to think about some of the things she was saying and how much sense she was making. In a few days, I had read the entire book and I have to say, I probably think about something from the book every day. It's not like I read it intently or had to memorize parts of it. There were really just so many thought-provoking points and perspectives that stuck with me. I can honestly say, I didn't start out trying to be happier but I certainly ended up there.

This is a refreshingly frank, practical guide to understanding how our thought processes can impact our outlook and ultimately our happiness. Before reading this book, I had no idea how much power each of us possesses over our mind set and spirit when it comes to shaping our attitude and perspective. Great advice throughout, and I would recommend that everyone pick up a copy of this book and stick it in their travel bags or on their bedside tables. You cannot refer to it enough!

I just finished reading Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo's wonderful book A Happy You. I love the way the book is organized into alphabetical lessons like "I for Inspiration," and "R for Relaxation." As a busy mom who doesn't typically have long chunks of time to sit and savor a book, this format works really well for me. The book is inspirational but is also filled with lots of helpful, practical information. The "prescriptions" at the end of each chapter give small actionable steps that I can take to increase my happiness. I love the way the author shares a story about someone's breakthrough to happiness and then gives their web site. I often want to read more about that particular person, so that's a big time saver for a busy mom like me! This is a book that has already had an impact on my life and I will recommend it to friends and family. Terrific book!

Format: Paperback
Let's face it: there is enough going on in the world to keep us feeling down and having a grim outlook on what is possible in our personal lives and the world in general. Every now and then we need that "pick me up" that reminds us of what is possible if we only remind ourselves of the role we play in having a better life. In her book A HAPPY YOU Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo looks at the things that can make us unhappy and realize what we can do to turn things around.

One of the things she talks about in the book is the benefit that comes from writing things down. You don't have to share it, but putting on paper what we are feeling and going through will also help us to identify how we want to bring about change in our lives. That leads to another important point: identify the thing you don't like and begin to make a plan to change them. Now this is not going to happen overnight, but beginning the process is the important thing.

The book takes you through what can be seen as the ABCs of building a sense of happiness in yourself, and what is interesting is that it also lets you see that alot of it has to do with our relationships not just with ourselves but others in our lives as well.

Thoughtful and informative, A HAPPY YOU is a pleasant reminder that we all deserve and can have better lives.
