Happy adults - thinking positively | The Fostering Network
Jump to navigation. Having blogged for many years about fostering and raising children I have more recently looked at ways in which adults and young people can achieve happiness and contentment. Last time we looked at taking responsibility for our lives. This time I would like to look at the benefits of thinking positively - for our children, young people and ourselves. We are what we think.
In simple, easy to manage steps, with lots of practical examples, and backed up by scientific research I show how we can all let go of anger and negative thoughts to achieve lasting happiness and contentment. Based on sound psychology with techniques that have been shown to work, Happy Adults is a must for anyone wishing to achieve a happier and more contented life-style. An easy to read yet hard hitting book.
While happiness is a universal human experience, there is little agreement on how we achieve, much less keep, the emotional state. How is a parent supposed to work with that? An emerging understanding of happiness, lead by the new field of positive psychology, may offer a path lined with actionable insights.
