My daughter and I recently went to the bookstore because we wanted to pick out some new books. I saw her looking around longer than usual so I asked what kind of book was she looking for. She told me books that show her how to be happy and also make her smile.
Do you know how to be happy or do some days require more motivation than others? With all the outside pressures, influences, responsibilities, stresses and more of everyday life, it can often be overwhelmingly hard to stay focused and happy. Maybe we can be inspired to be less negative and learn how to be happy thanks to this book list.
How to find happiness in a book?
There are some great books you may want consider reading when it comes to finding happiness.
As I walked around the bookstore with my daughter I looked up and saw a section in the store titled, “How To Be Happy“. She laughed as she told me she saw that sign on our way in, but wondered why it wasn’t in the kids section too.
Then what really got me was when she asked, why don’t grown ups already know how to be happy. I explained to her first that there is no limit to how happy a person can be, and then sometimes people need encouragement plus direction with finding ways to be happier, positive and more confident.
Books like these can be a big help while making you feel good.
I recently talked about people being shamed for doing things that make them happy, like I was, but maybe if we took some lessons from these books we would be inspired to be less negative and more happy.
