How To Be Happy (Or At Least Less Sad) is a workbook offering a place of solace, distraction, and a fresh perspective on life. This book will not fix you and it will not make you happy, but it promises to help you rediscover the simple pleasures in life and, ultimately, make you feel that little less sad. "This book made me nervous when I first scanned through it because I knew it would work! This isn't a self-help book; it's more of a blue-collar, get-down-to business friend with calloused hands who is ready to boogie when you are. This book is about action. But also acknowledgement. There are no platitudes and its author is no Pollyanna. It's an explicit map that leads to a place where you're going to feel measurably better, and better equipped to face life's vicissitudes." (Rob Delaney, Comedian).

Even though I am using this as a tool to work through my mental health challenges, I think this book is a great option for anyone who feels in a rut or just wants to do a little soul searching. I'm looking forward to what other tools I'll discover in this little gem.
Personally, I don't actually write in this book but copy my prompts into a different notebook. That way I can reuse this book or lend it out to a friend who might need it.
Another book which I would recommend buying in conjunction with this one is "Start Where You Are", which is apparently quite popular on Amazon. I feel that the content of these books goes hand in hand. Many of the exercises are similar in themes. However, that book is filled with cheery colors and lots of inspirational quotations; this book is inked in black and white, and might be better for someone who is depressed while stepping into self-examination with a journal for the first time.
I recommend going slow and keeping an open mind if you choose to order it. I feel grateful for this book right now.
I purchased three more copies - one more for her when she finishes the first one, and a couple to pass out to give to my clients.
Lee Crutchley does a great job of validating what it's like to be unhappy, and gives fun and meaningful activities to make small shifts in your attitude. Love it!!!
I actually emailed a link to the book to an art therapist I know, and she was intrigued enough to purchase it herself. After she reviewed it she said she planned to incorporate some of the exercises into her classes.
Well worth the price and it's fun to work in, too!
Here was a book with a goal I thought I could reach. Not only that, less sad was a hell of an improvement from where I was. It is filled with activilties that have helped other people. As it states, not all of them will work for you. Some of them might and one step up is better than staying put.
If you are depressed, mildly, moderately, severly, or anywhere on the scale, get this book. Amazon ships it so you wont even have to leave the house. AND I BEG YOU BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING PERMANENT, GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOOM OR CALL 911. Give those nice people a chance to come up with a better solution. Lets all live another day to kick depressions ass.
