    I was expecting a bit more science and a bit more guided it was a look at some of the science and a bunch of activities to do in calming meditative times to realize how happiness is there even on dark days and how we don’t always need to be exuberantly happy to be happy. Some sadness or stress can still be happy. It was good and short. The author took breaks as if you were filling in the activities along with him. That made me think the duck was broken, but it’s just how it is.
