Selene Castrovilla is an award-winning author! SEEKING FREEDOM is a 2023 Assoc. for Library Service to Children (ALSC) Notable Book!
We’re all human, sharing a planet and trying to get by.
We’re all looking for happy.
Why is it so hard to find?
Ten Steps to Finding Happy is a happiness book that navigates your soul. Each step comes with simple, specific actions—not vague mumbo-jumbo or convoluted language.
Unlike many personal development books, this is a straightforward path on how to be happy, delivered to you by a writer, a psychologist and 24 experts. This is one of the best happy books you'll find because of its simplicity and its scope.
Selene Castrovilla tackles the emotional perspective, peppered with personal anecdotes and honest admissions. In the sections titled From the Doctor’s Desk, Dr. Lindsay S. Weisner offers logical, research-based, psychologist-approved information that will provide the PROOF for which lovers of reason thirst. Read both, and figure out what moves you more, your mind or your heart. There is no right or wrong answer.
Self improvement starts today!
Isn’t time to be on your way to happy?
“These credentialed ladies will give you book chock-full of research (why and how) and tons of motivation to get to feeling better in an easy to read book. Yes, I said a self-help book you will actually read. Not just donate next year.”
—Tasha Jackson Fitzgerald, MA, MFT
"As an American, I was raised knowing that I had the right to pursue happiness, but of course I didn’t really stop to ponder what that meant until I became an adult, overwhelmed by the joy-sucking, daily grind of adulting. 10 Steps to Finding Happy is a user friendly guide to both figuring out what makes you happy in the first place and, more importantly, how to attain that elusive state of being. It was validating to know that I was already on the right track in some regards (shopping, finding things to make me laugh, exercise) and insightful to learn about the importance of keeping promises made to myself and allowing time for what’s important to me (WRITING!) Through an impactful combination of quotes by famous (happy) people, real life examples and punchy illustrations, Castrovilla and Weisner offer a winning strategy for finding the one thing that everyone on this planet wants: happiness."

So, how do you learn how to be happy?
Generally speaking, the left side of our brain controls logical thoughts, language, and numbers.
The right side of the brain controls emotions, spatial information, and visual comprehension.
It should go without saying that the whole right brain/left brain idea is an outdated oversimplification, but the idea that some people are more drawn to a more logical reasoning while others thrive in the beauty of the pain and pleasure of emotions definitely rings true. With that in mind, the authors have structured this book in a way that appeals to all readers, both those who enjoy balancing a checkbook and those who toss money into their account when the balance seems low and hope it all works out.
Their goal from the beginning has been to write one of the best personal development books ever, by offering you ten steps to finding your happy, along with a selection of solid, simple CONCRETE ACTIONS for following through with those steps. They won’t leave you hanging, wondering what to do!
BONUS! In the A Note From the Expert segments, guest writers deep dive into their professions, providing clear information and scientific evidence backing up this ten-step process.
All happy books are not created equal!
