Everyone wants to be happy. Yet, so many people are unhappy today: one in five women in America is on anti-depressants! What are they doing wrong? Clearly, a new approach to being happy is needed. Happy for No Reason presents three startling, new ideas and a practical program that will forever change the way listeners look at creating happiness in their lives:

1. Happiness is not an emotion, a spike of elation or euphoria. True happiness is a lasting, neuro-physiological state of peace and well-being.

2. True happiness is not based on what people do or have—it doesn’t depend on external reasons or circumstances.

3. Research indicates that everyone has a happiness set-point. No matter what happens to a person, they will tend to return to a set range of happiness. Just like cranking up the thermostat to get comfortable on a chilly day, listeners can actually reprogram their happiness set-point to a higher level of peace and well-being.

People are so busy trying to change their outer world in order to be happier, yet what they really need to do is change is their happiness set-point.

Happy for No Reason shows listeners how to do just that! Based on cutting-edge scientific research and interviews with over 100 genuinely happy people—and illustrated with inspiring Chicken-Soup-style stories—Happy For No Reason lays out a powerful, holistic seven-step program for raising listeners' happiness set-points. Using the analogy of “Building Your Home for Happiness,” an easy-to-remember and easy-to apply model, Happy for No Reason sets listeners quickly and easily on the path to creating true and lasting happiness in their own lives.
