The Happy Medium is a self-help guide to swapping the weight of ‘having it all’ to having more with less. Bestselling author, Annmarie O’Connor, a self-styled ‘inexpert expert’ on the subject of mindfulness, will help you gain perspective on your personal satisfaction by using positive psychology to clear unsustainable expectations of what constitutes a life well-lived.
The Happy Medium proposes a radical alternative to the pursuit of happiness – satisfaction. Drawing on the wisdom of ancient philosophers and mystics, Annmarie O’Connor makes a humorous yet humbling argument for the middle path in an age of digital distractions. In changing the definition of happiness from having it all to wanting what we have, from being our best selves to just being ourselves, finding that elusive sweet spot, she maintains, could be less of an epic journey and more of a cake-walk. Annmarie’s proposal? To make the bold decision to be enough, to be grand.
