Rating: 5 out of 5

I read this as a book for a book club. But it won’t surprise anyone who knows me that this book is right up my street.

Finding pleasures in the everyday is something I’ve been trying to do for a few years now. I fall out of the habit from time to time but have been doing a daily gratitude practice again since before Christmas. I also have a jug of notes with small pleasures written upon them that I can revisit whenever I need them. The majority of them are small and ordinary. This book reminded me why I do this. How it benefits me. And backs it up with science and references.

This book touches on a lot of different ideas and areas, and so I feel is a great introduction. It’s also gently written with humour.

The only negative is that my kindle decided not to allow me to progress beyond 54% of the book and so I had to swap to the kindle app. While reading about how device use is bad. Hey ho!
