Smart people don’t just need more bubble baths to be happier, they need information they can use!
In this succinct and easy to read eBook, Astra will help you to better understand happiness. When we understand how happiness works and where it really comes from we can easily make better choices and live happier lives.
So much of what we are taught about happiness is not only wrong but actually makes us more unhappy. Media, well-meaning family and mentors often reinforce these incorrect and damaging ideas about happiness. Reading this book will enable you to see clearly why the effort you have been putting in hasn't paid off. You will also be able to use what you learn to better understand yourself and make sure your energy is used where it will have the most impact.
This book isn't claiming to be a 'magic happy pill' but it is a perfect starting point to bring more happiness into your everyday life.
Included in your purchase is a 'Happy Hormones' A4 printable and 3 colourful templates to help form your new happy habits!
If you enjoyed Astra's TEDx talk, this is a perfect follow on.
What is an eBook?
An eBook is a digital book. You can read it on your computer, phone, tablet or kindle.
Will I get a physical item?
No, you will not receive a physical book. This is a digital product, you will have access to it on your chosen devices (phone/tablet/PC etc). You will need to give your billing address during checkout but that is only used for payment security to make sure the card you use is registered to you.
How can I read it?
We recommend you use the Kindle app. Available free for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows PC, Mac and Kindle Touch, but you can use any eReader that you want.
After purchasing you will receive an email with a link to download your eBook file (MOBI file for reading in the kindle app and an ePub file for all other eReaders). )
Download the eBook to the device you want to read it on. Follow the simple step by step instructions (included in email) to send the eBook to the kindle app or your chosen eReader.
You only need to do this once, the book will stay on your eReader app.
How long is the book?
It’s very succinct! Depending on the speed you read at, it should take between 1 and 2 hours to read. It’s the type of thing that you’ll probably want to come back to and re-read at different points because happiness really is a journey and we all need help to refocus from time to time.
Is it a PDF file?
No. We chose to make it re-flowable for a better customer reading experience. Because it’s a proper eBook, you can choose the font size, change the background colour etc. But best of all, the text fits the screen you are using, no more zooming in then scrolling right and left because the writing runs off the screen like it can with a PDF!

After speaking at a number of events, Astra was contacted by TEDx Stormont and asked to deliver a talk on happiness during the COVID Lockdown of 2020. You can watch her TED talk here entitled ‘Why big things don’t have a big impact on happiness’. Based on the huge amount of personal feedback from her talk she realised that what people needed was more, easy to understand information around happiness and positive mental health.
