What Audiobook Are We Listening To?
This week at Crash Symphony Productions, we’re listening to How to be Miserable: 40 Strategies You Already Use written by Randy J. Paterson and read by Stephen Paul Auldrige. This humorously named audiobook is a guide of what not to do if you want to be healthy and as a result: happy.
This video by CGP Grey on YouTube is a great introduction to some of the fundamental points the book makes:
There are stacks upon stacks of self-help books that will promise you love, happiness, and a fabulous life. But how can you pinpoint the exact behaviors that cause you to be miserable in the first place? Sometimes when we’re depressed, or just sad or unhappy, our instincts tell us to do the opposite of what we should – such as focusing on the negative, dwelling on what we can’t change, isolating ourselves from friends and loved ones, eating junk food, or overindulging in alcohol. Sound familiar?
This tongue-in-cheek guide will help you identify the behaviors that make you unhappy and discover how you – and only you – are holding yourself back from a life of contentment. You’ll learn to spot the tried-and-true traps that increase feelings of dissatisfaction, foster a lack of motivation, and detract from our quality of life – as well as ways to avoid them.
So, get ready to live the life you want (or not?). This fun, irreverent guide will light the way.
