My Review Of Be Happy By Aisa Ross

Be Happy, the first of the "BE" series,  is a book written in a straight-talk fashion, quickly delving into the heart of the matter--How to live our days better and happier, with purpose and direction.  Also, this short book contains massive information on the psychology behind people's self-sabotaging behaviors and negative thought patterns.



If you are like me, at one point in your life, you have asked yourself questions like these:

1. What's wrong with me?
2. Why can't I just forget about him/her?
3. Why do I feel so lonely and sad?
4. Why do I do the things I do? They're irresponsible and destructive, I know that! Yet, here I am again–overeating or overspending.
5. Why do I feel so restless, angry, and impatient?
6. How can I improve my life and myself?

I believe the primary causes and also the answers to these important questions are:

a) We lack psychological/mental and spiritual nourishment, solid boundaries, and established foundations.
b) Our physical selves live disconnected from our inner beings.
c) We did not learn the necessary life skills in managing each aspect of how to live a balanced lifestyle.

"Be Happy: How to live your life by design" is an easy and simplistic guide to help us find a better, happier way to live.

Injury sustained inside our brain is the most difficult to diagnose and to treat.  In the case of motor vehicle accidents or physical traumas, physicians have the advantage of background information as to what happened.  In turn, they can automatically activate an emergency plan of treatment, such as a stroke protocol, CT scan, medications, and observation via in-patient hospitalization.


However, most of us are what can be classified as “the walking wounded.” We have unresolved psychological traumas and/or untreated brain injuries.  To function or cope with daily living, we subconsciously self-medicate to soothe or to provide the missing chemicals that our brain requires.  Our irresponsible behaviors and/or addictions are symptoms.  It’s a cry for help.  However, when we do seek treatment, we often focus on the symptoms and neglect the source of our sufferings.


First example:  EATING DISORDER


Please, let’s not rely solely on suggestions from diet/health books to lose weight or to overcome anorexia.   I agree that they are necessary materials because of the important information they provide.  However, first, we must bravely ask ourselves these questions:

a)    What is causing this restlessness?

b)    What is my body/mind asking me to take care of?”


The answer might be that we must join a survivors’ support group or speak to a therapist.  This is a situation that we cannot “tough it out, just be disciplined, and/or get over it!”


Let’s be kind to ourselves and give voice to our sorrows.

My review. I found this book to be informative. "The greatest treasure in life is - loving one's self." I agree. There is no getting away from yourself, so you need to love yourself. Aisa explains each topic in the book in her own simplistic way.
