A must-have resource for anyone trying to balance personal well-being with a growing list of competing priorities, The Happiness Skills Workbook compiles scientifically-supported activities so people can learn the skills that help them live a more satisfying, meaningful, and fulfilling life. On college campuses, the demand for mental-health services is as much as doubling in a single year. At companies, there is an epidemic of employee burnout. And at home, increasing economic and social pressure is leading to an entire generation of stressed-out kids. Now we are at a precipice. People are beginning to realize that skyrocketing mental-health-care costs, increased workplace attrition, and lackluster academic performance can all be improved by developing people's happiness and well-being. Although scientific research has uncovered dozens of ways that people can improve their happiness and well-being, there is not yet a resource that helps people to easily learn, grow, and practice these skills. A simple, practical, and fun resource for developing happiness skills is long overdue.

Life's too short to be unhappy at work "I'm working harder than I ever have, and I don't know if it's worth it anymore." If you're a manager or leader, these words have probably run through your mind. So many of us are feeling fed up, burned out, and unhappy at work: the constant pressure and stress, the unending changes, the politics--people feel as though they can't give much more, and performance is suffering. But it's work, after all, right? Should we even expect to be fulfilled and happy at work? Yes, we should, says Annie McKee, coauthor of the bestselling Primal Leadership. In her new transformative book, she makes the most compelling case yet that happiness--and the full engagement that comes with it--is more important than ever in today's workplace, and she sheds new light on the powerful relationship of happiness to individual, team, and organizational success. Based on extensive research and decades of experience with leaders, this book reveals that people must have three essential elements in order to be happy at work: A sense of purpose and the chance to contribute to something bigger than themselves A vision that is powerful and personal, creating a real sense of hope Resonant, friendly relationships With vivid and moving real-life stories, the book shows how leaders can use these powerful pillars to create and sustain happiness even when they're under pressure. By emphasizing purpose, hope, and friendships they can also ensure a healthy, positive climate for their teams and throughout the organization. How to Be Happy at Work deepens our understanding of what it means to be truly fulfilled and effective at work and provides clear, practical advice and instruction for how to get there--no matter what job you have.

Central Avenue Publishing is proud to publish another book by the widely acclaimed poet Iain S. Thomas. As many have noted on various social media platforms, there have been some issues that have led to the delayed release of this book. For this, we apologise and hopefully the content of the book will clarify the circumstances surrounding this delay. We feel we should also point out that this is not technically a self-help book, but it does contain some poignant prose, poetry and stories which may or may not lead you to happiness.Mostly, it is the rather unfortunate chronicle of a man's attempt to write the book he’s promised his publisher, no matter the cost to his sanity.
