“Try to read the book a couple of times in the first week, then at least once a month thereafter.” -Karl Moore
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The 18 rules of happiness is a short book crammed with wisdom. Karl Moore penned this 18 simple rules. Each rule is a little light-bulb moment that brings you closer to being happy.Life is all about finding happiness, and let’s face it- most of us are struggling to find it. I must admit, that after reading this book, my outlook on life really did change.
SOME OF THE RULES:
According to the book, you should learn to accept the situations that you are in right now. Try to be grateful for everything that you have. Try to imagine losing something, and suddenly you will be so much more grateful for having it. Do things that you enjoy. Try to get that childlike bliss back into your life. We all have something that makes us feel alive. Learn to let go of negative emotions. And do random acts of kindness. We all could use more people that are kind. So why not become that person yourself?
You get a nifty short course in releasing negative emotions in that back of the book. It also has a bunch of happy quotes, which I found a bit boring. Then there is a playlist with some happy songs, which was nice. I was more interested in the feel-good foods section.
WHAT DID I THINK?
The 18 rules of happiness are easy to understand. It is easy to read and implement. And the rules are good. Most of them applied to me. It will be easy to grab the book and skim through it again. My copy of The 18 rules of happiness already has highlights and little light-bulbs drawn in it.
