The Zen of doing anything is doing it with a particular state of mind that brings the experience of enlightenment – and through that experience, happiness. In Zen and the Art of Happiness, you will learn how to think and feel so that what you think and feel creates happiness and vibrancy in your life rather than gloominess or depression. Cutting-edge science and spirituality tell us that what we believe, think and feel actually determine the makeup of our body at the cellular level. We all have a personal philosophy that influences our thoughts and feelings. It deals with what we have come to believe about the world, its people and its events – about how those events affect us and how we affect them. Whatever your personal philosophy is, it is completely responsible for your state of happiness and well-being because it determines how you respond to events that come into your life.

In this book I’ve learned that unhappiness is a habit and you have to get rid of this bad habit and start the happy habit. This book is a short and easy read so you can read it in the bus, on the train or simply in the morning while you drink your coffee.
