“The key to happiness and health (and to all their auspicious by-products) is not how intensely happy we feel, but how often we feel positive or happy.” – Sonja Lyubomirsky
You know those times in life that rock your foundation?
In her book The Myths of Happiness, Sonja Lyubomirsky calls them crisis points.
They’re the kind of events that leave you feeling like things will never be the same. And love them or hate them, they happen to everyone.
These crisis points can be times of renewal and growth, but let’s keep it real – we rarely seem to view them as such when we’re going through them.
Therein lies the key – how do you deal with them.
Myths is about identifying the steps that will work for you, and as in any area of life, there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
