Turning into a bit of a book blogger over here! About a month ago I was kindly gifted a copy of Happier Thinking by the author herself, Lana Grace Riva. As I am in a phase of reading lots of wellbeing and mental health books, I was intrigued.
Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva Book Review
The book is an easy read. There are only 50 pages, so you can sit down with a cup of tea and finish the book in one session. Lana’s style of writing is quite chatty and informal, much like blog writing, which again makes for a relaxed read.
Without wanting to give too much away, the whole premise of the book is as the title suggests. Happier thinking. It’s all about how to turn the negatives into positives. If I had any criticisms, it would be that the book is quite repetitive. However, Lana states that there is some repetition in the introduction, so you are prepared for that beforehand.
Even with the overlapping, I like how each chapter focuses on the concept of happier thinking and applies it to different everyday situations. In the beginning, Lana says that she is not professional psychologist or anything like that, her advice is what she has learnt over the years and now she is sharing her thoughts. The content of the book is therefore relatable as there are no fancy scientific terms which I wouldn’t be able to understand!
Going back to the length of the book, having less pages than the norm is great. If you ever need reminding of anything in Happier Thinking, it doesn’t take much time to flick through and find the page you need. It is also handbag-friendly, so if you’re having a busy day, it’s an ideal read for a commute to work or lunch break.
Overall, a useful little read with some handy tips, even if it does repeat itself at times.
