If there is one thing that most of us aspire to, it is, simply, to be happy. And yet attaining happiness has become anything but simple. Having stuff – The Latest, The Newest, The Best Yet – is all too often peddled as the direct route to happiness. So why then, in our consumer-driven society, are depression, stress and anxiety ever more common, affecting even the very young? Why is it, when we have so much, that many of us still feel we are missing something and the rush of pleasure when we buy something new turns so quickly into a feeling of emptiness, purposelessness or guilt?
So what is the route to real, deep, long lasting happiness? Could it be that our lives have just become overly crowded? Have we lost sight of the things – the simple things – that give a sense of achievement, a feeling of joy or excitement and that make us happy? Do we need to take a step back and change our priorities? Do we need to make our lives more simple? Kate Humble’s fresh and frank exploration of a stripped-back approach to life is uplifting, engaging and inspiring – and will help us all find balance and happiness every day.
We aim to dispatch all orders as quickly as we can – usually within 5-7 working days of receiving your order. Please note due to current circumstances, delivery may take longer.
