Forget About the Pursuit of Happiness. Master the Art of Resilience. If you focus on happiness, you're not going to get happier. Once we reach a goal we think we want, our brain shifts to the next goal. We're constantly shifting what we think will make us happy and once we get it, we're not satisfied and as a result, less happy. We're going about this happiness thing the wrong way. Rather than using happiness as a way to build more resilience, we need to develop our resilience in order to be happy. Resilience is a quality most of us want to possess. The big issue is that few know how to access it in their day-to-day life. We understand that it's important- that it's crucial, even-but it seems like a fleeting thing that you either have or you don't. How we actually attain the skills to become resilient has been left out of the conversation . . . until now. In 21 DAYS TO RESILIENCE: How to Transcend the Daily Grind, Deal with the Tough Stuff, and Discover Your Strongest Self (HarperElixir; April 5, 2016), Dr. Zelana Montminy, a leading expert in positive psychology, offers a practical, science-backed toolkit to develop your capacity to handle whatever life throws your way-and thrive. Each day of her powerful program, Dr. Montminy introduces a key trait necessary to improve resiliency and enhance well-being-then provides simple tasks to accomplish that day. In the book, she helps you gauge your current level of resiliency. This essential guide also includes exercises to help you keep your resiliency muscles strong. Combining proven science, unique exercises, and insights from real-life experience, 21 DAYS TO RESILIENCE will help you train yourself to be incredibly resilient, and in turn become happier, healthier, and more successful in all aspects of your life.
