Recapture the joy of living!

We live in an incredibly hurried, stress-filled time in which we often feel that our lives are not only out of our control, but have become meaningless. In order to regain ourselves, we are left to believe that we have to make dramatic life changes, such as changing jobs, changing relationships, or even changing religions. Dr. Lee Jampolsky disagrees—“Nothing needs to change in your life situation or the world in order for you to have peace of mind.” This starling and simple statement is the basis of Dr. Lee Jampolsky’s book, 
Smile for No Good Reason, a gentle and practical approach to achieving personal and professional happiness.

Smile for No Good Reason presents clear and concise ways to live a happier and more meaningful life. You will learn to feel more peaceful and be more productive by replacing the automatic ways you react from fear with new perceptions of yourself and the world.

Building on the work pioneered by his father, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, the author shows how Attitudinal Healing will give readers the happiness they seek—without changing the amount in one's bank account, spouse, job, status, or religion. The only thing readers need to change is that over which they have complete control—their attitude. As Jampolsky writes, "Nothing needs to change in your life situation or the world in order for you to have peace of mind.”

In an increasingly complex world, readers need to remind themselves of what is most precious. Smile for No Good Reason offers simple, practical ways to be happy by approaching life with a different attitude.
