The Happiness Trap
The Happiness Trap: Stop Struggling, Start Living by Dr. Russ Harris.
Are you, like millions of people, caught in the happiness trap? Russ Harris explains that the way most of us go about trying to find happiness ends up making us miserable, driving the epidemics of stress, anxiety, and depression. This empowering book presents the insights and techniques of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) a revolutionary new psychotherapy based on cutting-edge research in behavioural psychology. By clarifying your values and developing mindfulness (a technique for living fully in the present moment), ACT helps you escape the happiness trap and find true satisfaction in life.
The techniques presented in The Happiness Trap will help readers to:
- Reduce stress and worry
- Handle painful feelings and thoughts more effectively
- Break self-defeating habits
- Overcome insecurity and self-doubt
- Create a rich, full, and meaningful life
“Russ Harris is a truly engaging speaker and writer. The Happiness Trap is based on science and provides practical ways in which you can: reduce stress and worry; break self-defeating habits; rise above doubt, fear and insecurity; and create a rich and meaningful life.
This is a bestseller for a reason! I love this book because explains techniques that I have since adopted to use in my own life that I also often recommend to others.”
