Well-being expert and social media sensation Stephanie Harrison of @newhappyco reveals the counterintuitive secrets to happiness and provides a practical guide to help us all learn how to live a happy life.

We all want to be happy, but happiness always seems to be out of reach — until now. In New Happy, happiness expert Stephanie Harrison draws upon hundreds of studies to offer a life-changing guide to finding the happiness you have been looking for, all based on a decade of research and brought to life with beautiful artwork. 

It’s not your fault if you are unhappy. You have been told three lies: you’re not good enough; you need to achieve fame, wealth, and power; and you need to do it all on your own. This is Old Happy, our society’s false definition of happiness, and it’s making us miserable. In this book, you’ll learn the truth: you are enough, you have unique and important gifts, and using them to help other people leads to your happiness. 

New Happy is your step-by-step guide to building the life you want. Accompanied by revelatory artwork that explains key concepts, Harrison takes you through the process of unwinding Old Happy, uncovering your own gifts, and using them to both improve your life and the world at the same time. If you have ever asked yourself, “Who am I really?” “When will I be happy?” or “What am I supposed to do with my life?” this book is for you.

Through an inspiring blend of art and science, New Happy will forever change the way that you see yourself and the world. Whether you’re wondering what career you should choose, navigating a life transition, going through a difficult time, teaching your kids what matters most, or simply hoping to experience more joy every day, New Happy offers the proven path to a happier life and a better world.

Praise For…

Advance Praise for New Happy

"Stephanie Harrison has given the word “happiness” what it has been in dire need of — a redefinition. She has made happiness a worthwhile goal, one based in powerful choices that lead you to a life of purpose and self-love… and ultimately — the new happy." 
— Dr. Edith Eger, New York Times bestselling author of The Choice and The Gift and renowned trauma recovery expert

"A much-needed, practical and human book about dignity, possibility and connection. This is the book we need right now."
— Seth Godin, author of The Song of Significance

New Happy will give you a new positive outlook on life with a greater sense of purpose.”
— Dr. Temple Grandin, New York Times bestselling author of Visual Thinking, autism and animal rights activist

"Stephanie Harrison offers a great gift to readers both by exposing the lies we all too often buy into, that keep us from experiencing true happiness, and by reminding us that we matter, that we are of infinite value and our connections with one another are so very important. You will be thankful that you read this book."  
— The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, human rights advocate, and author of Love is the Way

“There is a Chinese proverb that goes: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” New Happy takes this saying and backs it up with digestible data and actionable next steps. We all deserve a lifetime of happiness, and New Happy shows us how that's achievable if we stop doing the things that will never make us happy and focus on what will. New Happy is a must- read guide.”
— Shannon Watts, author of Fight Like a Mother and founder of Moms Demand Action, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the United States
