Boosting Happiness In Northbrook With Some Simple Changes


Simple Steps To Boost Happiness talk at Northbrook library.

I just want to give a big Thank You! to everyone who came out last night for my talk at the Northbrook library. The presentation was based on my booklet Simple Steps To Improve Your Mood so if you missed it, please download the booklet – it’s free. I was surprised (and very pleased) at the number of attendees. Next time we need a bigger room.  As I was leaving, I noticed three participants outside the door chatting away. They told me that they had taken on board what I had said about hugs raising your serotonin levels and had hugged each other, even though they didn’t know each other before, as well as other participants and me as they left the library. And yes, it had made them happy!  

Another of the things I talked about was noticing three things a day that give you pleasure. That ladies, was certainly one of my three things yesterday. Keep up the good work! So if you live in or near Northbrook and someone comes up and hugs you today, you’ll know why 🙂


If you are thinking about getting counseling and you’d like to talk to someone about the things that are troubling you, I am happy to help.
