The author knows her stuff and has done research. She is very religious, though, and there are lots of quotes from the Bible and references to God. I'm not religious so I skipped over them. It's a good book for women to read to give you direction to leading a happy life. I did the Happy Woman Test and here are my results: Your Top 3 are your “Personal Triggers” Anticipation ("Every day I make sure I have something to look forward to"): 19 Savoring ("Every day I enjoy a moment worth savoring"): 17 Financial Savvy ("I aim to live on 75% or less of my income"): 17 Your highest three triggers are your most dominant. These are the happiness triggers you frequently use and come most naturally to you. Nurture them and find new ways to use them even more to boost your happiness. You are very comfortable activating these triggers as they are unique to your personality and lifestyle. However, it is your Power Triggers (bottom three) that give you the greatest leverage to boost your happiness. Your Bottom 3 are your “Power Triggers” Movement ("I spend 30 minutes each day moving my body"): 13 Flow ("I minimize interruptions so I can fully engage in the activity at hand"): 12 Winning Words ("Every day I speak words of hope, peace and love"): 12 Your lowest three triggers provide you with the greatest opportunity to boost your happiness because these are the ones you use the least – and perhaps even neglect. By intentionally activating these triggers, you tap into new, scientifically-proven ways to boost your happiness. Leverage these triggers right away to positively impact your well-being in ways that will feel novel and intriguing to you. Your Happiness Quotient: 77 Your happiness quotient is a numerical measure that determines how actively you use all of the happiness triggers. The higher your quotient, the more fully you are utilizing all of the triggers, likely resulting in higher levels of overall happiness. The maximum Happiness Quotient is 100 points.

    I was given a free copy of this book for my review and honest opinion. What a thought provoking book! Why are women less happy than 40 years ago? Has life changed so much in such a short space of time? The answer is yes. We can do more and we want more, but does that help women to lead a happier life? We lead lives that are challenging, full and at times overwhelming as we attempt to be wives, mothers, workers, and individuals.

We lead lives that are challenging, full and at times overwhelming as we attempt to be wives, mothers, workers, and individuals. Ms. Burton's aim in this book is to help today's women work out how to be happier with life. Ms. Burton has identified 13 "happiness triggers" - anticipation, smile, service, financial savvy, gratitude, connection, flow, play, relaxation, winning words, movement, savoring, and purpose. Each of the 13 triggers are described in full, and tips on how to use each one to achieve happiness in your life are given. What I liked - it made sense and the tips are easy to follow. What I didn't like - each section could have been stated a little more succinctly. At times I felt bogged down. Overall, a good self-help book for today's women.

Recently I went through a difficult period and I can honestly say that this book helped me work through it. When I first took the Happy Woman Test, my score was a 71. I will take it again soon after working on my Power Triggers and see what my score will be. The author's personable and positive writing style are encouraging; however, I will warn those who are not Christians that this book does have religious overtones and suggestions for biblical passages. I liked this aspect, but some may not. Even if you are not Christian, I still feel like this book is beneficial. I would definitely recommend it.

    Valorie Burton gets to the crux of why women aren't as happy as we could be. The book delves into the question of why women forty years ago scored statistically higher on measured happiness charts. The answer she puts forth, after interviewing ladies from all walks of life, is revealing and very touching. It's simply the feminist 'happy' myth that we can have it all. She quotes statistics which show that feminine happiness has been declining since the early 1970s, which is about the last time in Valorie Burton gets to the crux of why women aren't as happy as we could be. The book delves into the question of why women forty years ago scored statistically higher on measured happiness charts. The answer she puts forth, after interviewing ladies from all walks of life, is revealing and very touching. It's simply the feminist 'happy' myth that we can have it all. She quotes statistics which show that feminine happiness has been declining since the early 1970s, which is about the last time in history it was socially acceptable to focus solely on either your family or career without experiencing guilt or shame from society. Most women, no matter what their life choices, gave similar responses to her questions. 'I feel I should be doing more... This isn't what I thought I was signing up for... I feel like I've missed something and put myself behind... Yet I'm exhausted' It seems to me, reading this, that we're like frogs in a pot of water that gradually gets boiled. The changes in expectations about the role of women has increased our stress load without our conscious awareness. Although early feminists did our gender a favour by getting us out of one type of prison, the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction, making us prisoners again without even knowing it. Seeing my own experiences and attitudes written down made me a bit emotional. Family and career are two separate wells, and of course focusing intently on one must draw deeply from the other. Having established this, Valorie outlines 13 simple happiness triggers, along with a questionnaire to determine which are our strongest and weakest. None of them are really new and some are simpler than others. For example, smiling, keeping a gratitude list, getting adequate rest and moving our bodies don't seem too profound, but reading her take on them was fun. I definitely appreciate her advice to set up simple little treats, to give us something to keep looking forward to. I appreciate this book mostly for helping me recognise that a lot of unhappiness we suffer isn't our fault, and for giving us skills to deal with it. I received this book as a free ARC from NetGalley.

    This book starts with the question "Why are women less happy than 40 years ago, while men are actually happier?" I don't think this book answers the "why?" of that question but instead helps the reader figure out the "how" to be happier in their life, regardless of their circumstances.

Each chapter describes the happiness trigger, how to use it, and gives examples of women who have used the trigger to create happiness in their lives. Between each happiness trigger chapter is a "Conversation Starter" chapter that discusses cultural shifts/dynamics that affect happiness. Her website has a "Happy Woman Test" so that you can figure out what your top 3 and bottom 3 happiness triggers. (I thought the test was pretty accurate in defining what triggers my happiness.) At times, the book felt kind of long because there are 13 triggers and each one is described in detail. I thought maybe the triggers could have been categorized in a different way so the book didn't feel so long (maybe social triggers, physical triggers, etc...). There is a lot of research mentioned in this book but I didn't see any reference citations, it might be because I had a galley copy and the actual book does cite the research studies mentioned. This book reminded me of Gary Chapman's 5 Love Languages book in that it defines and categorizes an emotion in a way that I had never thought of before. It would be a great book club read because it really lends itself to discussions about the dynamics between circumstances, faith, cultural shifts and how they play into one's happiness. * I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads. Burton has some good points about how to make steps toward doing things to be happier. There's nothing groundbreaking in it, but I read a very short bit each day for several weeks, took her points, and mindfully tried to make some changes. However, many things that she hinted at in previous chapters came out blatantly in the chapter about Financial Savvy. Yes, live below your means, don't become a shopaholic, etc. But then she thr I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.

However, many things that she hinted at in previous chapters came out blatantly in the chapter about Financial Savvy. Yes, live below your means, don't become a shopaholic, etc. But then she threatens that if you make more money than your spouse (or potential spouse) you are likely to end up unmarried or divorced. She encourages women to think about giving up that promotion so men don't feel threatened. For real. This isn't a woman problem, this is a MAN problem. And if a woman ends up divorced despite giving up the promotion, she's sure going to regret turning it down when the man is gone despite her sacrifice. I don't understand how Burton can praise education and workplace advances in one breath and practically tell us not to take advantage of them in the next. I tried to keep reading after that, but even her good points were tainted.

    This is a very practical book. As Valorie says, happiness is a skill, and she gives us the tools to be more skilled at it. Some of her triggers were familiar to me, such as service and gratitude. Some surprised me, like the aim to live below 75 percent of your income. Some were new to me, like flow and savor. She has good, practical suggestions as to how to activate the triggers in your life. She has also included some very good discussion starters and/or thoughts for your own reflection. this w This is a very practical book.

    This book was a GoodReads Giveaway Book, and I thank the givers very much. This slim volume is to be read slowly and savored. It should be read with a pencil, pen, or highlighter in hand to mark special passages or write notes to oneself in the margin. This is a book that can be used as a workbook to attain happiness and satisfaction in our life. And it should be read more than once.

This is a book that can be used as a workbook to attain happiness and satisfaction in our life. And it should be read more than once. I know that's a huge claim to make, but if one looks at the hundreds of books on "Happiness" that are being offered out there, it might point out to us that this is something we are noticing to be lacking in our lives. Be honest with yourself - Are you happy? If you can readily answer "Yes!" to this question, Good for You. But if you can't.....you might want to ask why....really. This wonderful little volume helps you examine and discuss with yourself or others, why you might be feeling unhappy. And while I can give you a simple answer, getting to that simple answer takes a lot of digging. Use this author's words to help dig. This is not a book of advice,so much as it creats the atmosphere for you to ask yourself relevant questions. There is a religious element reflected in this work, but it's not enough to overwhelm the message.

I picked up so many obvious and simple thoughts that are worth remembering; and I appreciate the simple tips and conversation starters that can be used for discussion with peers and friends, as well as for meditation.

    This was a really good read that made for great conversation with some like-minded ladies. There are some tips that I picked up that I am already using. I would recommend this book to any woman who doesn't like most self-help books, because the author doesn't write from the premise of fixing something that's wrong with you. She writes about enhancing what is already going well and working with the life you have, instead of trying to "fix" it.

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It was okay. It has interesting advice for women and their goals. I might apply some of the advice to my life. I wish the introduction was longer and better explained "happiness triggers" and how to better use or develop them. There was a lot of references to God, so your mileage with the advice may vary. The book seems too vague and scattershot. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It was okay. It has interesting advice for women and their goals. I might apply some of the advice to my life.

    This book was just the right amount of personal stories, case stories and studies. Nothing overwhelmed one another. The advise was clear and there were great steps laid out for expanding each trigger. However, the title doesn't say "Straight Christian Women" and it should. I felt a disconnect from the reality that not all relationships are straight and that bothered me. This book was just the right amount of personal stories, case stories and studies.

If he perceives he cannot please you at the level of his ability to provide, he may choose not to pursue you.

    This is such a hard book for me to review ... I debated from 3 to 4 stars. I wanted to enjoy this book so much more than I did. Honestly the last two chapters were my favorite (Happiness Trigger #11 Movement & #12 Savoring). But the rest of it I really had to power through to get to the best part. “The everyday moments are your journey. The big moments are the destination. They are the moments in which you cross the finish line.”

    Good advice/tools/tips about making YOUR OWN happiness a priority everyday! I enjoyed the information about the happiness triggers and I did go online to take the free assessment/quiz. I learned things about myself and how to start putting some new things in place to cultivate more happiness in my own life.
