About the Book
If you’re tired of just trudging through another day, if you’re looking for more from life than the daily grind, if you’re seeking ways to get out of that rut or helping someone else get out, this book is for you. Get Happy, Dammit provides a pathway to greater happiness by helping readers build inspiration and motivation, two elements that can lead to a more fulfilling life.
"I didn't write this book because I take happiness lightly or because I think getting happier is easy by any means," says author Katherine Gotthardt, M.Ed. "I wrote it because I wanted to share what has helped me gain inspiration and motivation. If I can encourage someone else to get happy, then this book has been worth writing."
Each short chapter provides simple, proven exercises that allow readers to develop skills like mindfulness, time management, reframing, critical thinking, goal setting and more, all designed to boost inspiration and motivation. "These are exercises I used in the classroom and in life," Gotthardt, a former educator, says. "I've had many mentors and advisors over the years, and they have all contributed to my ability to write this book."
Creatives, teachers and coaches especially will discover or rediscover new ways to approach problems that plague us all and get in the way of progress. Individuals committed to improving their lives will find a DIY manual for enjoying a higher quality of life.
