Happy For No Reason offers an interesting insight into innate happiness. Based on psychological studies and field experience, Shimoff has developed a 7-step system, which allows us to achieve a constant level of inner happiness. Her theory explores all aspects of life, and dismantles the belief that happiness is linked to our social status or external events. In fact, happiness never comes from the outside, but from within. An inexhaustible source of positive energy flows inside us, which is transformed into happiness if we can build a solid house made up of foundations, pillars, a roof and a garden. Only when our mind, heart, body, and soul are aligned does an extremely powerful state of inner happiness occur.
