Is there anything more important in life than health?
But health never happens without happiness.
As a doctor of cells, I teach: healthy cells are happy cells.
Dr. Joan Neehall, PhD, not only explores the ways to happiness of the mind, but brings to life the concept of psychology of the immune system: happy mind is happy immune system.

Dr. Neehall is an accomplished, intuitive therapist. In this book, Dr. Neehall draws from her own experience, her clients’ experience, and a vast literature including philosophy, self-help, and behavioral economics. She describes that the pursuit of happiness frequently leads to unwanted states or negative addictions. Instead, she proposes that we develop positive addictions that support our happiness. She describes the basic building blocks of happiness such as connections to family, friends, and community; the physiological ingredients of happiness; and effective strategies to help us deal with the inevitable adversities of life. Finally, she applies these useful lessons to our current COVID-19 pandemic. The book is easy to read, makes you stop and think, and imparts wisdom, common sense, and humor.
