Synopsis

Elizabeth Popish had a singular objective in mind when writing Expanded Joy: she wanted to feel joyful again, regardless of any other circumstances in her life. Simply put, she wanted to master her own life. After brainstorming general areas of optimal living, she eventually settled on seven categories: energetic health, authentic happiness, mental engagement, stress reduction, social connections, creative expression, and altruism.



All strategies within this book are research-based with a preponderance of data proving their effectiveness by leaders in the various fields. They were designed for individual use or with others in a group setting, in much the same way as a book club. Each week brings a fresh new challenge, based on one of the above categories, where the reader can find exciting ways to expand his or her joy.
