When I picked up Think Happy: instant peptalks to boost positivity by Karen Salmansohn, I felt happier just looking at the cover! The cover of this book is bright and colorful. It reminds me of rays of sunlight mixed with the colors of a rainbow. Every page of this book is filled with bold colors. There are several sections to the book that give peptalks of positive things to say. Some examples are "5 positive things to say when trying something new," "5 things to say when dealing with major challenges," and "5 things to say when dealing with toxic people". After reading one of my favorites in the toxic people chapter, I posted the quote on Facebook and my friends LOVED it! (I'll let you check out the book to discover what you think my favorite quote in that chapter was.) Not only does each chapter have a quote, but it has some tips that are based on that quote. This book can be used for personal use as well as professional use as a counselor. I know it helped me personally to read some of these affirmations, but I also know that some of these affirmations could also help people that I talk to that are dealing with crisis, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and many other issues in their lives. I am quite intrigued by this book and I'm interested in checking out some more of Karen Salmansohn's work. I have even followed her page on Facebook. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to increase the positivity in their life or someone else's life!
I received this book for free as a part of the Blogging for Books program with Penguin Random House and Crown Publishing Group. My opinions are my own and I was not required to post a positive review.
