Happiness is bigger than you think, according to US author of Practical Happiness Pamela Gail Johnson. Pamela became a happiness advocate when she founded the Society of Happy People in 1998. As a mostly happy person, she asked herself, ‘Where are all of the happy people?’ Now, she’s known as a Practical Happiness Advocate for people who want to improve their lives by feeling happier.
During times of uncertainty and fear, people need to become more aware of happy and positive feelings to help neutralize unpleasant ones. It’s especially important when our unpleasant feelings are part of a collective experience that many feel simultaneously. Recent studies show Americans are unhappier now than in the last 50 years, and this number is only growing with pandemic worries and other challenges.
Finding happiness becomes an even bigger challenge for many people, but it is possible. In her new book, Practical Happiness, Pamela Gail Johnson helps readers redefine happiness and manage “Happiness Zappers,” with real stories from real people so they can experience more happiness.
“One of the challenges people have with happiness is that they believe it’s one feeling, when in reality, it’s many feelings, and can even change moment to moment,” says Pamela. “And an equally important component to our happiness is how we manage those experiences that zap it.”
In her book, Pamela shares four happiness principles for living a happier, yet realistic, life:
• Happiness is Personal
• Happiness Zappers Can be Managed
• Happiness Changes as You Change
• Happiness is Bigger Than You Think
These four principles will help readers redefine personal happiness, manage their Happiness Zappers, and become more aware of new happy moments which will improve their lives.
