Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva! A Review!
Happier Thinking is what we all want to achieve. Everyone wants to be happy, don’t they? I know I do.
Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva gives tips and advice on how to start retraining your brain to think happier.
Synopsis of the book, taken from Amazon
Changing how you think is possible. I wasn’t always so sure that was true until I experienced it myself, but I know now we don’t have to just accept unhappiness. Not always anyway. This book is my collection of tips and suggestions that have helped me achieve happier thinking. It’s sort of a gym for my mind. I’d love to tell you it was easier than the real gym but well… it’s not really. It takes time, effort, and practice but it’s absolutely well worth the rewards.
This book is fantastic! I, genuinely, loved it. It is so relatable and a quick read only being 50 pages long. Don’t let that fool you. It’s full of information and little tips to help you on your way to Happier Thinking.
Lana starts the book by clarifying that she is not a professional and these are just things she has used to think happier.
Right from the start, I knew I was going to relate to a lot of the things she was talking about. All the anxious feelings and writing off days because of one bad thing. I think it’s so relatable because she isn’t a professional using big scientific words and trying to tell me what to do. The book is more of a suggestion of things, rather than “you have to do this” and “you have to do that” that I have felt about other books.
Because there are no big, hard to understand, words I found the book so easy to read. I flew through it. I think I took in the information better and will actually be able to use the advice given.
“Happier Thinking involves acting productively, rather than thinking destructively.”
There are so many good quotes I could have used from the book, but this is one of my favourites. I am definitely the kind of person that would start thinking destructively instead of just getting on with it.
One section of the book mentions journaling about good things. I found this to be similar to the “Line A Day” I do in my bullet journal. It’s about making sure you note down the good things in your day to shift your focus from the negative.
Anyway, I don’t want to go into to much detail and spoil the book if your planning on purchasing it. I, personally, think you should if you want to start thinking more positively.
You can get the book on Amazon for £3.99.
