The 4 Habits of Joy-Filled People: 15 Minute Brain Science Hacks to a More Connected and Satisfying Life
Is joy the icing on the cake of life—or the fuel on which it runs?
Are some people just born happy? Most of us grew up thinking that joy is random and fleeting, instead of something we can actually count on or build our life around. But brain science has revealed that joy is the perfect word to describe the fuel on which our brains run. So how do we live a joy-filled life?
Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey show us how to build habits that fill our lives with greater joy and satisfaction. Based on the latest neuroscience and attachment theory—but written in everyday language—The 4 Habits of Joy-Filled People is practical and easy to comprehend. The authors provide exercises and tools you can put into practice immediately.
Joy is possible. It doesn't have to be a random experience that catches you off guard now and then. Some of the most joyful people have endured unbelievable trauma.
Joy-filled living expands our world. It makes life an adventure and teaches us to live for what is truly satisfying. Discover the skills and habits you can develop that will enhance your very quality of life.
Above all emotions, JOY has a unique life-impacting role in creating and sustaining healthy mental well-being and connecting relationships. Marcus Warner takes this complicated reality and simplifies it masterfully for practical daily application. Beyond spiritual understanding, appropriating joy despite circumstances provides one of life's most foundational skills to learn and impart. As parents of a dozen children, raising joy-filled lives has provided the glue for their fulfilled families. This book provides all the elements to make that possible!
