Very predictable and nothing new

This books keeps speaking about all those positivity sugar candys such as goal setting, being happy etc etc etc. Most of readers like us must have gone through all these concept many times. I had expected something fresh and new concept but all on vein.

Tips To Be Happy

I really liked the book. The tips to be happy were pretty simple; having said that if someone practices then only it's simple. In this busy and stressful world, it's very much required to be happy from inside. The book detailed about some of the major topics.
The narrator was pretty good and he was easy to listen and understand. Happy Reading.. :)

Excellent book with practical tips.

well researched book that brings holistic perspective to habits needed for happiness. Though it may not be feasible to be perfect in all ten habits, at least habits of Focus on positive and forgiveness are least we can do. I think this is must listen for anyone who wants pursue happiness

Simple and easy to listen to

It is a simple listen on audible. Again, all these books on self help say things that we already know. However, when others say that, it is soothing...

Not for disabled people

I wanted to listen to this to get tips on what to do/concentrate on to be happy more of the time. But as a disabled person I frankly found it pretty depressing. Apparently when visualising your 'great life' to aim for, the most important thing is that "you're healthy and happy, full of energy". As someone with a chronic illness which affects my energy levels this made me break inside a little. I have struggled long and hard to carve out a happy fulfilling life while ill, and it's been very difficult to accept the reality of my illness (and the permanence of it). Visualising a life free from illness and full of energy is something I've had to train myself out of doing as it only brings sadness, anger and stagnation as I wait to be healthy again (or try endless snake oil cures), rather than building a good life with the health I have.
So to hear in the first few minutes of these podcasts that the most important thing for visualising "your version" of a "great life" is to visualise one full of health and energy...
Thanks for ruling out any life I am able to lead from your vision of what makes a "good life" where I could be happy. This podcast is ableist bullshit which will make you miserable if you're permanently disabled.

Superficial & potentially harmful

Dr. Happy is a pretty nauseating name for anyone who I older than 5 at birthday party expecting a clown. Repeated use almost requires medication. The focus on materialism to achieve the transient experience of happiness ("on my boat with my mates") is very dangerous, leading to a futile pursuit of more "stuff", costing more money, bringing the twin evils of debt & more work. The cases at the end of the three chapters I was able to listen to sounded like self-satisfied assholes. Very glad this book was free

A very nice bite size guide on how to take practical steps to achieve happiness

A lightly told series of instructions on how to bring more fun and happiness into your life.

I have followed the instructions and am seeing benefits.

Just need to turn these things into long lasting habits

Nope

Don’t waste your time. It’s absolutely useless. It’s like the inspirational quote version of a pod cast. Maybe if you’re not actually mentally ill it would...na even then I wouldn’t bother. Do yourself a favour and get a decent book, new mood journal by David burns or something else like that.

Author clearly has no understanding of PTSD

The author obviously has no understanding of PTSD. To suggest that people who get it focused on the negatives and not the positive outcomes of the trauma, is ludicrous and an insult to so many who have served. PTSD is not comparable to people who have benefited from trauma. PTSD is the subconscious brain defending itself/reliving it. Someone can have PTSD and still grow from their trauma at the same time. Unbelievable how this even got published. I couldnt continue after that as it completely discredits everything else he has to say. This is a disgrace.

Great commonsense advice

This was a really appealing podcast. Nothing groundbreaking, but really good steps that are achievable, and motivating without being all American and shouty. I've already got lots of simple ideas that will help me kick start a happy new year.

Definitely worth a listen!

Tim delivers no-nonsense, science-backed advice on cultivating happiness in this series and I couldn't get enough. His delivery is warm and engaging and so easy to listen to. A great series for anyone looking to prioritise their well-being.

Got me thinking

Feels like one of those rare books that may actually make me change behaviour rather than put down and never think of again. I've already worked out some of my own habits for happiness.

Happiness Habits

I loved this audio. It reinforced what successful (aka happy) people do and what I am also doing. Remember that happiness is a decision too!

Thanks for a great punchy audio Tim.

In happiness,

Practical tips for a happier life

It was great to take some time out and think about what happiness means to me. I can see that with just a few changes to my daily habits I can bring much happiness to my life and the lives of those closest to me.
