New Guide by Donna Dawley Reveals Simple Secrets to Happiness

After undergoing multiple surgeries for a staph infection, author Donna Dawley realized something incredible: she was still happy. "I realized that even though I was going through an extreme personal crisis, I was still happy," she says. "I came to understand that happiness is a choice."

Dawley passes this and other profound thoughts and insights on happiness to readers in her new self-help guide to joy, "The Joy Charged Life: 52 Simple, Practical Ways to Create Joy in Your Daily Life" (published by Balboa Press).

Written in a candid, easy-to-follow manner, "The Joy Charged Life" promotes simple methods that are quick and cost-effective that will lead readers down the path to a happier life. Dawley turns away from short-term, superficial fixes such as getting a massage or buying something luxurious in an effort to help readers better understand themselves and what they truly want out of life.

"The things I recommend doing are really simple and practical and they can be a lot of fun," Dawley says. "Each is a small movement toward a happier life."

An excerpt from "The Joy Charged Life":

"You probably need a Charge of Joy, even if you are blessed with natural happiness. The energy boost you get from doing these simple things can lead to unexpected changes in your life. You will create more gratitude, more love, and of course, more joy."
