If happiness is the absence of problems, would anyone ever be happy?
For over 25 years, psychotherapist Sean Grover has worked with people seeking relief from unhappy situations: financial ruin, failed relationships, sudden illness or loss. Life comes with all kinds of built-in hardships, but the most stubborn challenges are the ones we create for ourselves.
"Shortcuts to a Happier Life" is a collection of Sean's most popular essays from his Psychology Today blog, which has gathered over ten million reads and whose audience continues to grow.
"Ultimately, we must wrestle with ourselves to get to the heart of life's complex problems," Sean writes, "Only then can we see beyond the surface issues and develop sustainable solutions."
Designed to inspire reflection and contemplation, and covering topics from heartbreak to social anxiety, Sean's essays highlight uplifting stories to encourage change on the deepest level.
"Shortcuts to a Happier Life" reminds you that self-generated happiness is sustainable even during times of hardship.
