How Can I Be Happy? Learn the latest in positive psychology from John Schinnerer PhD
Here is another testimonial that arrived today…
Dear Dr. Schinnerer,
Yes I will watch your video. I also wanted to contact you because I literally started reading your book, “Guide to Self” two days ago.
I typed out the top 12 Changes to make for anger management and I started my day by reading last nights entry in my “Thank You Journal.” Each entry starts “Thank you Lord…”
I fill in five things I am thankful for from my day. I read the 12 Tools to remind myself.
The main reason I started this is my husband and I got in a fight. He told me he can’t talk to me because I always get mad at him. Today I called on my lunch and he was worried about something and we discussed it. I called him again on my way home from work. He thanked me for the talk and said it was the first time he felt I actually listened to him. Thank you soooo much! I am very grateful that I already found some success.

To which I replied…
I’m so proud of you. Keep up the great work!
To me, the biggest question is ‘How Can I Be Happy?’ I have worked on this question of happiness for over 20 years and it works. It takes time. It takes practice AND it works.
One of the best things you can do is train yourself to get excited when your spouse has good news to share. It’s called active constructive responding (More on this is in the 10 week course).
Most importantly, keep practicing. It takes time to pick up new skills. Keep at it!
