Author: Karen Salmansohn
Release Date: March 7, 2017
Description from Goodreads: “Happiness expert Karen Salmansohn presents a unique interactive book that invites readers to literally open letters of encouragement, wit, and wisdom whenever they need a boost.
Inspired by the trend of “open when” letters sweeping the nation, Instant Happy author Karen Salmansohn has created a bound collection of 12 notes for readers to flip open whenever they need a pep talk. With categories like “Open when you need a laugh,” “Open when you’re feeling stressed out,” and “Open when you need courage,” these little happiness-boosters are based on Salmansohn’s viral posters that combine witty sayings with colorful graphics.”
Review: This book is wonderful for a quick laugh. When you are feeling down or just need a laugh, these quick letters are perfect to help you feel better. The humor and practical advice will help tremendously, even if it is goofy advice at times. What better way to improve your mood?!
I will admit, I wasn’t sure if I would like this book or not. This is completely different than any book I have, but I am really impressed with it. Simply using positive affirmation to improve your mood is so helpful. This isn’t full of world changing advice, it’s simple practical letters to help you through your difficult situation.
This isn’t a world changing book, but the advice in this book could really change the way you react to stressful or bad situations. They say that “life is 10 what happens and 90 how you react to it” so why not try to give a positive reaction to it? This book can help.
Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone! It says in the first letter of this book that even positive people can bad days; therefore, even optimistic people could use some positive letters sometimes. In a world filled with negativity and darkness, everyone could use a little reminder to think positive!
