"Don't be fooled, "The Joy Compass" is not the latest 'feel good' book--though it certainly will point the way to living a life of mindfulness, purpose and fulfillment. Donald Altman's 'compass' comes from his years of practicing in his own life what he teaches in this book and facilitates for his clients and students. He describes the various paths and practices it takes to live life as a creator, rather than a victim to all the forces in the world that conspire to steer us away from a life of choices and vitality. His simple--yet profound--writing rhythm offers 'content, practice, and reflection.' This is the 'CPR' our modern life needs for resuscitation!"

What would life be like if we could get beyond the everyday worries, troubles, and stress that keep us from enjoying the joy in every moment? The Joy Compass is the little book that leads readers toward this possibility with tips and strategies for overriding the brain's natural negativity bias so that they can reset their moods, release their laughter, and fully appreciate happy moments. Readers learn to recognize their negative moods as early as possible and override them to refocus their attention toward the people, events, and thoughts that bring them joy. The eight unique mindfulness strategies in this book help readers position their joy compass toward the present moment and develop the capacity to always have joy within arm's reach, no matter the situation. The strategies include laughing, expressing gratitude, forgiving others, self-soothing with music, and spending silent time in contemplation or prayer.
