New Book: The Time To be Happy Is Now! Check It Out!

New Book

The Time to Be Happy is Now

Provides 52 Techniques to Overcome Stress

Dr. Kenford Nedd, who previously wrote Power Over Stress, has just come out with a new book, The Time to Be Happy is Now, which details 52 proven techniques to overcome daily psychological and physiological problems in order to build a successful career and enjoyable life.

“I have been practicing these techniques for more than 20 years with groups of executives, doctors and other professionals, all over North America,” Dr. Nedd reports, “and all of those who adhered to the techniques got significant improvement in their ability to function, while reporting higher levels of happiness in their lives.”

The Time to Be Happy is Now offers three types of techniques: how to deal with difficult situations and unpleasant people, how to heighten your emotional skill and build inner strength and how to use the stressors in your life to build a refined and integrated physiology and a happier life.

One technique designed to help you keep your cool under trial involves instant relaxation – how to reverse negative emotional and physical stress in 11 seconds using a formula consisting of seven steps. Contracting certain muscles groups, breathing in through your nose and redirecting your circulation to designated parts of your body, are a part of the process. Another technique is designed to stimulate the chemistry of happiness by using your brain in new ways. A third teaches how smiling can change blood flow to the brain and how to use this knowledge to make yourself happier.

The book emphasizes how to use your physiology to change your emotions, how to behave with the happiness of others in mind and how to deepen your connection to yourself, enlarge your circle of love and enrich your spiritual life.

Dr. Steven Pratt, bestselling author of Superfoods Rx, declares, “Ken Nedd makes stress reduction more fun than anyone on the planet. He helps us, in a science-based, enjoyable fashion, learn to control the everyday stress which we all encounter.”

Joy Bramble, Senior Editor of The Baltimore Times, calls the book “inspiring, practical and uplifting,” and Dr. Aziz Vellani dubs it “a must-read book with the power to change your life.”

Former St. Lucia Prime Minister Kenny D. Anthony believes that Dr. Nedd’s “practical, sensitive lessons on happiness touch the heart, inspire the soul and heal the broken spirit,” concluding: “This book is just right for these times!” And Thomas J. Marrie, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta, declares that The Time to Be Happy is Now is “A must-read for every medical student that will make the practice of medicine even more rewarding.”

Among other things, Dr. Nedd’s new book explains: how happiness changes body chemistry, how to acquire the biology of happiness, how the physiological state of happiness improves one’s ability to get a job and keep it, and how happiness and ideal work performance go hand in hand. It details what really happens to one’s body when it’s under stress―emotionally, chemically and physiologically.

“If left unchecked, unhappiness can undo all the good things you do for your body—like exercise and proper diet—and even interfere with medical treatments,” Nedd states. “By adopting these practical and easy-to-follow techniques, you can learn to take control and steer yourself to financial and social success, with a sound, clean, and happy mind.”
