Full Heart Living

Do You Want to Be Happier?

When was the last time you said the words, “I’m really happy” and meant it? If it’s been a while, then you are not alone. For many of us, happiness only occurs at peak moments in our lives; it is not something we experience every day. No one knew that more than psychologist and author Tom Glaser.

Following the unhappiest period of his adult life, Tom set out to find how nine of the happiest people he knows got that way. These nine exceptionally happy but otherwise ordinary people shared how they honor their strengths and weaknesses, connect with their true passions, and enrich their lives and those around them.

In Full Heart Living, Tom uncovers what's behind the simple yet profound everyday choices these truly happy people make. Plus, he breaks down those choices into easy to follow steps. Take your first step. As Anne Frank said, "Whoever is happy will make others happy too." 

With Full Heart Living, be prepared to:

• Connect more deeply with yourself and others
• Live more fully in the present moment
• Increase your self acceptance
• Discover how good self-care is important to happiness
• Uncover your passions and offer them in the service of others
• Develop happiness resilience

Full Heart Living will inspire you to connect more deeply with others, yourself, and your passions. But be warned: You may even become motivated to interview the happiest people in your own life! See how full your heart can be. Order Full Heart Living today.

“This is the hero’s journey. The interviewees are the teachers and the guides. There’s the invitation and the calling, these horrible things that happened. Full Heart Living is the return of the wisdom that Tom learned along the way.”
