What would you say if I told you that I found a compass for happiness, an actual instruction manual for all areas of your life? Your response would probably be an eye roll, or maybe a cheeky response like “I also have ocean front property to sell you in Oklahoma.” All joking aside, I had the privilege to be able to read Norma Nikutowski’s Turn Your Happiness On and was pulled in by the simplicity and candidness of her writing and real-life scenarios. She provides uncomplicated advice on how to enhance your life and find lasting happiness. Each area of your life is covered, from relationships with family, to career, dreams and self-doubts. She included activities to get your mind working to look beyond your narrow view of your situation and to find a way to live your best life. I found her advice helpful and will be incorporating it in my life immediately. I feel this book would be a great gift for a high school or college graduate, to get them started on the right path for a happy and enriched life. So, do yourself a favor and take some time to read this book and work through the questions in each chapter. Your future self will thank you.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I really liked Sydney J. Harris’ quote that happiness is a direction, not a place.
