Book Recommendation of the Week

100 Simple Secrets of Happy People

By: David Niven

This book looks at what makes people happy.  There are 100 suggestions and bits of advice on how to make yourself a happier person.  The tips are easy to read and come with either examples from people who have experienced it first hand, research and studies or lessons from history.  Much like my books, you can open this at any page and read a tip, put it down and come back to another page at another time.  The tips are things like; Laugh, Satisfaction is Relative and Think in Concrete Terms.

David Niven has written a series of books that I would also recommend to military families – ‘100 Simple Secrets to Great Relationships’ and ‘100 Simple Secrets to Happy Families’.


* Callenge your family, colleagues, class or group to look at a secret a week

* Chose your top ten and live them each day

* Challenge yourself to take on one new secret each week and write about it

* Read a secret a week to your family and take up the challenge together

* Write in the book itself (I rarely say this) and keep it as a log of your challenges if your family member is deployed or absent they will be able to read about your experiences and may even be inspired to challenge themselves too
