We all want the things that we're sure will make us happy - money, success, independence, love. But when we finally get them, we often find to our surprise that we are the same miserable, moody, or just neutral people we always were. Why is that? Is our ability to be happy genetically programmed in us like the color of our eyes?
Luckily not. You can teach yourself to be happy and enjoy every day, and M. J. Ryan, bestselling author of The Power of Patience and Attitudes of Gratitude, shows you how. In her international coaching practice, M. J. Ryan has shown hundreds of clients how to find and really feel the joy in their lives. She gives them tools to unearth what stands in their way and revolutionize the way they experience life.
The Happiness Makeover draws on this wide-ranging knowledge and presents a plan that will help readers:
Clear away happiness hindrances like worry, fear, envy, and grudges
Discover happiness boosters like flow, meaningful work, challenge, and gratitude
Literally rewire your brain to experience contentment and even joy
Learn to think optimistically (It really is possible!)
Find daily ways to relish moments of your life

Full of moving stories, inspiring quotes, and the wisdom of one who has been there before, The Happiness Makeover offers the means to find elusive happiness at last.

M. J. Ryan is one of the creators of the New York Times bestselling Random Acts of Kindness and the author of a number of bestselling books. She is a contributing editor to Health.com and Good Housekeeping and has appeared on The Today Show, CNN, and hundreds of radio programs. Visit her at www.mj-ryan.com
