Written for those of us who are so busy, we forget to indulge in the simple joys of everyday life, 52 Weeks of Non-Stop Bliss reminds us how simple yet powerful the little things can be-things like listening to children's conversations, indulging in a special dessert, reaching out to long-lost friends, feeding birds in the backyard... The best things in life are affordable and easy, but they can be life-changing With 52 Weeks of Non-Stop Bliss, you can treat yourself to:
- 52 blissful activities
- 52 brainstorming journals
- 52 ways to be happy all year long.
Find everyday joy in the simple things in life and take the time to heal your soul.
 
Thoughts:
 
This book is a really cute idea. Terri L. Cunkle writes about 52 different activities to make you happier - one for every week of the year. Though I found some of the ideas in this book inspired me to try new things in my life, I felt it could have been better overall if it had a little more depth to it. The book is actually more of an activity workbook with only one or two paragraphs to explain the activity and why the author thinks it will bring joy into your life. I also felt some of them were very unappealing and I would probably want to skip those weeks.
 
Here are some of the activities Terri L. Cunkle has suggested in her book:   

  • Week 6 - Feed the Birds
  • Week 11 - Thank Someone
  • Week 16 - Take a River Ride
  • Week 17 - Learn Something New
  • Week 33 - Be the Change in Your World
  • Week 42 - Go Through Your Photos
 
Overall, a lovely book. Get this if you want a little inspiration for weekly activities. If you looking more for motivation and the psychology behind happiness, I would recommend Bryan Cohen's book, The Post-College Guide to Happiness. Perhaps these two books could even compliment each other a little bit.
