When I first saw "Happy Addiction", I thought it was very novel. It flipped the concept of "addiction". By dismantling the causes and elements behind negative addiction, and then applying it to positive habits, let us also Can be easily stuck by positive behaviors (such as exercise) that are not easy. However, in the process of the second brush, I began to have a confusion.
If this is a book that is different from company banner design the book on the market that talks about self-growth or good habit establishment, it does use a very different angle (cheng addiction), it also contains a lot of psychological knowledge and methods. But in terms of cultivating positive habits, it is more like helping to anticipate the psychological obstacles that may be encountered in the process of cultivating habits, and how to prepare in advance to help them continue better until the change occurs. In terms of habit cultivation, it is really "too much thinking". In actual practice and operation, the exercises in the book are sometimes not so relevant to the good habits you want to cultivate.
It was not until after the expert's guidance and the third brush that I finally had a new understanding of the content of the book. What "Happy Addiction" really wants to talk about is not only to establish a positive habit that makes you feel good, and let you live your life. It can be filled with more positive feelings and even lead to changes in life. It actually wants to help us establish a happy and positive self-state, and such a state will allow us to enjoy and like our own life more, and then achieve happiness. Therefore, going through the process of happiness addiction is actually the process of helping ourselves to do psychotherapy.
