A Six Step Formula to Promote Lasting Happiness.

Most of us have gone through stages in life when we felt broken, confused and alone.  When we felt no joy in life and everything seems to be an effort.  This is not the same as clinical depression, which requires professional intervention, but a very low time in our life.  It could have been triggered by a life event or just a slow progression of small day to day events that have set off a cycle of negative thoughts and feelings.
