The Happiness Trap Summary


The Happiness Trap: Stop Struggling, Start Living by Russ Harris

THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER

Popular ideas about happiness are misleading, inaccurate, and are directly contributing to our current epidemic of stress, anxiety and depresssion. And unfortunately, popular psychological approaches are making it even worse.

In this controversial but empowering self-help book, Dr Russ Harris reveals how millions of people are unwittingly caught in the 'The Happiness Trap', where the more they strive for happiness, the more they suffer in the long-term. He then provides an effective means to escape through a groundbreaking new approach based on mindfulness skills.

Mindfulness is a mental state of awareness, openess, and focus. Mindfulness skills are easy to learn and will rapidly and effectively help you to reduce stress, enhance performance, manage emotions, improve health, increase vitality, and generally change your life for the better.

The book provides scientifically proven techniques to:

Reduce stress and worry.

- Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity.

- Break self-defeating habits.

- Improve performance and find fulfilment in your work.

- Build more satisfying relationships.

- Create a rich, full and meaningful life.

The Happiness Trap Reviews


'Carefully and creatively presents techniques that anyone can use to undermine struggle, avoidance, and loss of the moment. Harris systematically explores how we get into the "happiness trap" and then shines a powerful beacon showing us another way forward' - Steven Hayes, PhD, author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life
'A practical antidote to the self-help industry's unhelpful obsession with trying to change yourself' - Sainsbury's Magazine

'Eminently practical and readable. This book reveals that when calibrating one's life according to acceptance and valued action, happiness is a pleasant sideshow in the larger carnival of an engaged and purposeful existence' - Zindel Segal, PhD, author of The Mindful Way through Depression


'An exciting alternative to the usual approach of so many self-help books. Harris explains how we can work with ourselves as we are, rather than aggressively trying to alter ourselves. I'm impressed by the simple and effective methods of ACT' - David Richo, PhD, author of The Five Things We Cannot Change
