Life IS Beautiful book review: How can you find happiness in a dreadful year?

Self help books can really be a hit or a miss. Granted, some are amazing. I’ve read ones that have changed my life for the better. But many are filled with woo advice that has never actually been proven to work. These end up being more frustrating to read than genuinely helpful. I’ve become a bit of a skeptic the past few years. I take most advice with a grain of salt, and generally take a lot of time to process things before putting it into action. Admittedly, I’m naturally pessimistic. Constant joyful optimistic can grate on me, because it makes me wonder- what’s the catch?
