Everyone wants to be happy, yet so many people are the opposite of that, with increasing numbers of anti-depressants being dispensed each year. Clearly we need a new approach to life. Happy for No Reason presents startling new ideas and a practical programme that will change the way we look at creating happiness in our lives. Marci Shimoff combines the best in cutting-edge scientific research into happiness with interviews with over 100 genuinely happy people, and lays out a powerful, holistic, seven-step formula for raising our 'happiness set point'. Our happiness levels are like a neuro-physiological thermostat - we can actually re-programme ourselves to a higher level of peace and wellbeing as happiness is dependent on internal, not external, factors. With endorsements from celebrities such as Goldie Hawn, Richard Gere, Jimmy Carter and Susan Sarandon, Happy for No Reason will set readers quickly and easily on a path to lasting joy.
What would it take to make you happy? A fulfilling career, a big bank account, or the perfect mate? What if it didn't take anything to make you happy?

In Happy for No Reason: 7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out, transformational expert Marci Shimoff offers a breakthrough approach to being happy, one that doesn't depend on achievements, goals, money, relationships, or anything else "out there." Most books on happiness tell you to find the things that make you happy and do more of them.

Studies show that each of us has a "happiness setpoint" -- a fixed range of happiness we tend to return to throughout our life -- that's approximately 50 percent genetic and 50 percent learned. In the same way you'd crank up the thermostat to get comfortable on a chilly day, you can actually raise your happiness set-point! The holistic 7-step program at the heart of Happy for No Reason encompasses Happiness Habits for all areas of life: personal power, mind, heart, body, soul, purpose, and relationships. In these pages you'll discover moving and remarkable first-person stories of people who have applied these steps to their own lives and have become Happy for No Reason. You'll read phenomenal tales from a former drug dealer turned minister, a hit filmmaker, and a famous actress who escaped a "family curse," as well as stories from doctors, mothers, teachers, and business executives. You'll learn practical strategies that will help you experience happiness from the inside out. You don't have to have happy genes, win the lottery, or lose twenty pounds. By the time you finish this book, you will know how to experience sustained happiness for the rest of your life.
Following on from New York Times bestseller Happy for No Reason, Marci Shimoff introduces a new paradigm of love in Love For No Reason, describing it as a state of being that doesn't depend on external circumstances. When a person experiences love for no reason, they don't need to get it from other people, the right partner, the perfect body or a great job.

Podemos recordar todos un tiempo cuando éramos jóvenes, Mamá calmada y nos nutrió la salud con su elixir de sopa de pollo mágico. Ahora podemos visitar de nuevo aquellos momentos apreciados con una jornada encantadora de historias para y sobre madres.
There is no one like a mother. Our mothers gave us life, love us, take care of us, and want the best for us, no matter how old we are. There is no way to adequately describe the gift they have given us. No other experience in the world compares to being a mother. Being pregnant, going through labor and childbirth, and for adoptive and biological mothers, seeing your baby's face for the very first time-these are powerful occurrences are just the start of the unique role in life we call motherhood. How can we ever adequately thank our mothers for the gift of life and unconditional love? How can we honor our daughters, wives, friends, and other relatives who are mothers for the enormously important job they do? We can remember to express all the love and gratitude we feel for them. We at Chicken Soup offer this "bouquet of stories" to mothers, and their children, everywhere. We hope it will warm the heart, make you laugh and give mothers a renewed sense of purpose and courage to continue what so many feel is life's most rewarding and challenging occupation.
