Smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices were created to make our lives easier, right? Then why do we feel disconnected in a connected world?

In The Happiness Hack: How to Take Charge of Your Brain and Program More Happiness into Your Life, Apple and Google alum and Stanford instructor Ellen Petry Leanse shares ways to reclaim some of the calm and focus that technology has disrupted. 

Leanse has the experience and know-how to share simple paths that wire your brain for happy. Her research and insights in The Happiness Hack were the tools she used to rewire her own mind to find more connection and happiness in each day.


The Happiness Hack  provides insights to help readers:


•    Get to know their brains
•    Unplug from their technology
•    Master their minds to master their habits
•    Build real connections
•    Design a fulfilling, sustainable life

Leanse guides readers to form new patterns that help them live in the moment, consciously program their minds for more happiness, and reach for real fulfillment, rather than for their phones.
