Book Review: Turn Your Happiness ON
As an author, I currently focus my writing on eco-fiction, science fiction fantasy, adventure, mystery, and romance; however, I also have a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a concentration in early childhood and adolescent development. I am a proponent of positive psychology, inclusion, and behavioral health. I once researched coaching and created a manual for physicians who were chosen by their health administrators as mentors for other physicians in their specialties and practices.
That said, Norma Nikutowski’s self-improvement book, Turn Your Happiness ON: How to Light up your Days and Fill your Life with Joy is a selfless contribution dedicated to helping others achieve a purposeful, enriched life. Those who take the time to delve into this wealth of coaching will unearth the potential for happiness and joy, not just in their retirement years, but right now as well.
Norma Nikutowski practically offers a life-time of coaching sessions that would cost so much more money and time than it costs to purchase and read this book. And, she doesn’t just say “Think positively,” and throw out a bunch of vague, random suggestions on how to accomplish this feat either. Rather, she:
- provides opportunities for the reader to take action steps;
- outlines cognitive behavioral steps to take in order to literally create happier, healthier habits that help to advance the reader closer to positive life goals;
- presents strategies for success; and
- offers advice regarding how to handle negative events (because those will still happen in this world, of course—despite positive progress).
This is a must read for all those who are trying to figure themselves out, searching for answers, and looking for guidance on how to turn things around to achieve happiness and success now—not only when they retire and seek activities to enjoy in their golden years, but now, as they live productive lives.
