From the same author that brought us The Little Book of Hygge, this book reveals the secret to filling your life with happy moments, and how to remember them for ever. Each year we are given 365 days. Some of those days pass us by without leaving a trace, and some days seem to stick in our minds for the rest of our lives.
Do you remember your first kiss? Swimming in the sea on holiday? The first time you drove a car? Research has shown that when our senses are stimulated and when we are conscious of our emotions, we are more likely to recall those precious moments – which is why the butterflies in your tummy, the sun on your skin or the thrill of sitting at the wheel probably flood back to you so easily. But those happy memories don’t have to be reserved for big life events. Drawing on global surveys, behavioural science experiments and data gathered by The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik is here to show how we can we can turn ordinary experiences into something extraordinary.
Whether it’s eating dinner at the table rather than in front of the TV, exploring a new part of your neighbourhood, or planning how you’re going to celebrate your small wins, this book will help you find the magic in the every day, and create memories you will cherish forever.
