Discover how to practice and access happiness at any time.

When were you last truly happy? How did “happy” feel? Some people find that being happy is a natural state of being, but for others it’s a constant struggle to find contentment with all of life’s stresses and upheavals.

Based on scientific studies of biochemistry and neuroscience, this book teaches you how to cultivate happiness by honing certain physical skills such as strength, flexibility, fluidity, grounding and warm-heartedness. Deeply rooted within your body, these skills foster resilience, confidence and creativity to help you meet life’s challenges skillfully.

Acclaimed author and psychologist Noa Belling has designed a variety of “happiness workouts” made up of everyday quick practices, complemented by physical exercise programs that are designed to be accessible no matter your age or level of fitness. Try it out and feel how it optimizes your brain function and reliably turns things around!

Noa Belling provides an essential guide to help you access nourishing emotions of happiness, joy, contentment, excitement, confidence, and pleasure. With practical tools based in neuroscience, this book offers an alternative to antidepressant medication, without any side effects! — Dr. Arielle Schwartz, author of The Post Traumatic Growth Guidebook
