This book presents scientifically-supported guidance for people who want to replace stress and painful emotions with a sense of well-being and contentment. With empathy and unfailing good humor, Dr. Pamela Hays outlines a four-step process that has proven successful in her professional clinical psychology practice as well as in her own life. She invites readers to step onto the path of well-being by recognizing their stressors, avoiding negative thought-traps, re-examining their thinking, and taking action wherever possible, using environmental change, better communication skills, social support, and self-care. Each chapter demonstrates how taking small, manageable steps adds up, over time, to real and permanent change. Packed with tips and tools for self-reflection, this book shows readers how to build well-being from the ground up.
