The Happiness Trap Pocketbook,

by Dr Russ Harris and Bev Aisbett (Exisle Publishing, RRP $25):

A few years back, Dr Russ Harris came up with the novel concept of the happiness trap and told us all how to avoid it. This little book is a pretty much the same concept but all compacted and now cutely illustrated to make it all easier to follow.

If you missed the buzz around this book will teach you how to avoid the often misleading but commonplace ideas about happiness that can actually have the opposite effect we are looking for, leaving us feeling a bit on the miserable side.

You will learn how to reduce stress, get a handle on your fears and doubt, break bad habits and develop a healthy dose of self-acceptance.

Even if you read the original of this book, you’ll find this a great little refresher course.
