How to be Happy

Review by:  Jake

Just like with the Snow Sculpture Championships, for centuries upon centuries people around the world have found ways to celebrate life and have found little secrets to make life a little easier and more enjoyable.  The brand new book “Happy” published by Lonely Planet explores these secrets to happiness from the cultures of the world.  Whether it be getting lost to find yourself from the traditional Walkabout celebrated by indigenous Australian cultures, or just getting outside to enjoy some sunny weather as is celebrated in Sweden’s Midsummers Festival; the book “Happy” is packed with stories and tips to brighten anyone’s outlook on life.  I recently had a chance to review a copy of “Happy” and found it…well… pleasant.  Super easy to read, and packed with stunning photos, the descriptions of each unique festival, and cultural event make me want to start making reservations to partake in the festivities myself; but that’s not the point of the book.  The point is simply to make the reader aware of all the little joys in life and to engage the reader to get off the couch and go do something, and of course be “Happy”.
