What if you could decrease depression and as much as double your happiness for up to 6 months? What if you could achieve it with only a small amount of effort each day for a week?

Top researchers in the field of positive psychology say you can.

Without spending a dime on psychotherapy or medications!

Practice Lags Behind the Latest Science

When I practiced psychotherapy, I helped people to identify thinking and relationship patterns that kept them depressed and unhappy. I often referred them to a psychiatrist to get started on medication.

Many times they got better. Their happiness improved. Their depression decreased, or went away. But the process took weeks, sometimes months.

After years of treating people for depression this way, I was stunned to discover the science that supported simple lifestyle changes, and changes in how we think, that can be just as effective, and often more effective than therapy and medication.

But the practice of treating people with mental illness often lags 10 years or more behind the latest science in their practice.

In many cases, those who provide treatment for mental illness haven't yet noticed that the tide is turning away from focusing on how to make people well, to improving well-being to prevent mental illness.

Whether you've suffered from depression or just want to be happier, you can use these discoveries made by leading researchers in the field of psychology to improve your life satisfaction now.
