The Happiness Trap Summary


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

THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER

Do you ever feel worried, miserable or unfulfilled - yet put on a happy face and pretend everything's fine? You are not alone. Stress, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem are all around. Research suggests that many of us get caught in a psychological trap, a vicious circle in which the more we strive for happiness, the more it eludes us.


Fortunately, there is a way to escape from the 'Happiness Trap', a ground-breaking new approach based on mindfulness skills. Using the six principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Russ Harris can help you to:
* Reduce stress and worry
* Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
* Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
* Break self-defeating habits
* Improve performance and find fulfilment in your work
* Build more satisfying relationships
* Create a richer and more 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
'This book could save you years of psychological struggle, yank you out of negative emotional patterns, and help propel you to a much happier, more productive life' - Martha Beck, author of Finding Your Own North Star
