The book has Hank's usual sarcasm and fun, which makes the book great. He has complied a list of things we can do to be happier, and he does it in an entertaining way.
I highly recommend this book, it in it's self will make you happy. It'll do even more for you if you follow it's teachings.
When the book arrived, it promptly disappeared because my husband, the guy who loves to tease me by saying, "I read 100 books a year--100 picture books to the kids. What? Those count!"--yes, that guy, took my book and started reading it. He loved it and reached the halfway point before I told him that I needed it back so I could read it.
Then my teenage daughter found the book and she was intrigued as well. I guess this book has something magnetic about it.
Hank Smith is a popular teacher, speaker, and author. I've listened to several of his audio presentations and the man is hilarious! He teaches with wit, humor, and skill because he's able to bring important points to attention without feeling like you're being preached to.
I once had the opportunity of doing a book signing with Hank and he was just as cheerful in real life as on the page or the audio CD. In short, I'm a fan of Hank because he's real and an excellent teacher. It's so refreshing as a parent when you can find someone else to say all of those great things you need to say to your kid because, let's face it, sometimes kids hear things better from someone else. I'd like to be able to choose that someone else and Hank Smith is one of many great influencers in my home.
Be Happy is an excellent book because Hank delves into happiness in a way that most of don't think about. Happiness is in our DNA, but that's only half of the equation. Happiness is also a choice that we make every day, despite our circumstances. I love the study he referred to about people who won the lottery and people who became paraplegic. A year later, they both reported the same level of happiness! Isn't that amazing? If it does sound amazing, then you'll probably like this book. It is geared to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, or Mormons, but I truly think these gems shouldn't be missed by anyone. Happy reading!
I read this book cover to cover within a couple of hours because I felt very inspired and hopeful after reading this book. It was very easy to read and had lots of practical advice. Sometimes it's really hard to be happy and to stay positive day after day, but Hank Smith offers things we could do to help train our brain to be more positive and react with mindfulness and patience.
The author offers 10 simple tricks to jump start joy (intentional happiness) each day and he suggests that the reader start with working on one thing at a time and master it before moving on. Tricks like "Listen to Uplifting Music", "Exercise and Eat a Healthy Diet", "Get Enough Sleep", etc.
There are chapters on the science of happiness (which is very interesting), what the scriptures say about happiness, learning to accentuate the positive, patience, contention, mindfulness, depression and change.
I really liked this book and will be sharing it with others. I also liked the author's suggestion about a gratitude journal and a patience journal.
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
