Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva


Hello Readers,
Thank you, Lana for sending me a copy of your book Happier Thinking in return for free in exchange for an honest review.

Happier Thinking is a really cute little book  at 52 pages and Lana makes it very clear that she is not a trained professional. This book is a wonderful reminder that life has an upside. Lana shares things that has led her to think happier and She notes that a single negative event can ruin your whole day  if you let it.  It's a book i think everyone needs to read once and this book is packed full of interesting and funny examples of how to think happier. 

Lana reiterates that conscious thought is the key to a happier lifestyle.

When I started reading the book, I was struck at how much I liked the writing style it is very casual and inviting. Lana promotes her points, but not in an off-putting way and remains very conversational and easy going. In each chapter Lana give's helpful tip's with scenario's so, the reader can clearly understand. Lana does make it clear that what works for her may not work for everyone. it teaches really important things like how to think about the things that matter, or how to not be hard on yourself and how her tips can be adapted to suit the individual person. Lana also explains there is 'no quick fix' because you are trying to change your thinking pattern which takes time. If you are feeling down, Happier Thinking may be a good reminder that there is always a rainbow after a storm. Lana emphasises at multiple points in the book that this is not a cure for depression, however, I believe that this can be a great accompaniment to other treatments.

I found Happier Thinking to be a handy read and I have picked it up when I have needed a little nudge to remind myself to think happier. My favourite chapter is don't compare your life to imagined others I find myself at the ripe old age of 25 reminding myself I am on my own timeline and I do not need to compare myself to others or to how I planned my life when I was younger.
