In colorful graphic style, positivity expert Karen Salmansohn presents a stylishly designed book of aphorisms that have the power to uplift. Research has shown that positive language has the power to change the way our brains think—and thereby influence positive behavior. In other words: your words create your world. Following on the heels of the wildly popular Instant Happy, this colorful little gift book presents happiness expert Karen Salmansohn’s next infusion of mood-boosting sayings. Filled with fascinating nuggets from popular science, this peptalk-in-a-book provides lists of “things to think” to build mental resilience, positivity, gratitude, and happiness.
