For the first time in paperback, the New York Times bestselling author of Happier explains how the science of positive psychology—along with the virtue of acceptance—can help readers escape the rat race and begin living lives of serenity, happiness, and fulfillment.
In Being Happy, New York Times bestselling author Tal Ben-Shahar draws upon the latest science of positive psychology, as well as principal texts in philosophy, ethics and theology to prove how practicing the virtue of acceptance will lead readers to a life of fulfillment and serenity. By learning how to acknowledge our weaknesses and unpleasant feelings, let go of our unrealistic expectations, and truly accept and experience our emotions, we become fully human, more appreciative of life in general, and more serene on a day-to-day basis. In Serenity, Ben-Shahar not only gives us the theory, but the tools to help us learn how to live life on life’s terms and to accept life as it actually is instead of what should be.
Filled with the same “Time-Ins,” meditations, and exercises that made Happier such a hands-on, actionable book, Being Happy will give readers practical strategies and exercises to get off the rat-race, get in touch with their emotions, and start living a more serene and fulfilling life today.
Originally published in hardcover as The Pursuit of Perfect (0-07-160882-6 * 978-0-07-160882-4).
