Happy: Finding Joy in Every Day and Letting Go of Perfect is a Sunday Times bestseller by Fearne Cotton about strategies for staying positive in an increasingly negative world. Living such fast-paced and connected lives, it’s easier than ever to find new pressures and stresses to internalize. Cotton understands this and embraces it, viewing happiness less as an ultimate external goal to achieve and more as a constant effort to acknowledge our small victories and look to expand them inch by inch. Offering numerous exercises, reminders, and organizational ideas, this inspirational book teaches the reader not to deny themselves happiness by attaching it to external goals, but to find it by ignoring negativity and treating themselves fairly.
In life, one will always have pressures burdening him or her, whether they are due to school, work, personal life, or social media. Consequently, we find ourselves overwhelmed and frazzled and unable to cope with it all.
Fearne can relate to all of the above, and has expert advice on how to manage the daily stress of life. Happy is a book about finding the joys we have on a daily basis. Happiness is not a large mountain to climb, rather it is just a daily journey and takes consistent steps.
Fearne offers different ways to take these steps, including starting and ending each day well, getting in touch with your creative side, and finding solace in writing. These are all keys that will help you find your inner happiness.
