Book Review: Happy by Fearne Cotton


It is a positive and intelligent read. It isn’t just about depression, but it focuses on several aspects of our lives we can work on to be “happy” or more realistically to find what feels right for you.
Family, love, food, yoga, identity, balance etc are some of the aspects covered. The book features beautiful illustrations and pages you are encouraged to write in and return to about your own perspectives.

The author writes with honesty about her past and her troubles with the darkness of self-doubt and depression. I found her approach really enlightening.

I adore the simplicity of this book, it is beautifully presented and very straightforward. What I like about this book is that it doesn’t tell you what to do, simply lay out very basic ideas for you which you are then meant to build from and apply to your own life. This book emphasizes the holistic nature of being Happy and recognizes the importance of acceptance.

A lovely book, helpful, insightful and definitely help you to be more reflective.
