Finally, a Practical, Easy-to-read Book on Achieving Happiness. It Cuts to the Chase.

Book Cover front (1)A GUIDE TO HAPPINESS aims to reverse America’s 33% happiness index

SAN DIEGO, May 18, 2016 — According to a Harris Poll, only 33% of Americans say they’re very happy. San Diego life coach Alan Shein says that’s not hard to believe. His clients often report that they are stressed and unable to enjoy life to its fullest. “It doesn’t have to be this way,” says Shein. “I have studied the anatomy of happiness and practiced many effective techniques that can increase an individual’s happiness.”

Shein says he has read many good books about happiness, but none that offer an easy-to-use, practical guide to increasing it. “Many of my clients told me they needed a book that cuts to the chase and offers tools and techniques that address their specific issues, instead of theory about problems they may not be currently facing,” he says.

The newly published A GUIDE TO HAPPINESS deals with 58 issues in all. The list includes stress, anxieties, better sleep, mindfulness, conquering overwhelm, confidence and a host of other issues. Each issue is addressed in its own self-contained chapter. Each chapter has tested tips, tools and techniques which have been refined over many years in practice. “I’ve formatted the book in a unique way so readers can access the information quickly without having to wade through text that is not relevant to them at that moment,” he explains. “It is also one of the only self-help books that uses illustrations; this helps to communicate weighty concepts in a light-hearted way.”

Associate Professor of Medicine at University of California at San Diego, David Bortz, M.D., F.A.C.P says A GUIDE TO HAPPINESS is “a sensible, effective, and efficient approach to dealing with life’s stressors,” Dr.Bortz notes, “I have to believe that this book will also contribute to decreasing stress in the workplace, leading to higher productivity and calmer spaces.”

“This is more than a book, it’s a mission,” says Shein. “I have seen so many clients transform their lives using these techniques that it is incumbent upon me to share this approach with a broad audience.” Of our country’s 33% happiness index, Shein says, “When people are happy, they are more collaborative, peaceful, and productive. Happiness isn’t a luxury; it is a necessity for the well-being of society.”
