Today the human spirit cries out for help. Anxiety levels are rising to new heights. Depression strikes one in four of us. But in the midst of these tensions, there is a growing hunger for a happier life. Millions are now asking themselves, in the words of Mary Oliver, ‘What is it you plan to do with your one, wild and precious life?’
The Happiness Habit is written for all who believe in humanity - its promise, its passion, its power - and for those who are ready to nourish the divine beauty of their hearts. Beautifully crafted and lovingly presented, it is the perfect gift to give yourself, or someone you care about. The Happiness Habit is your angel in disguise.

Daniel O’Leary, a priest of the Diocese of Leeds, is an author and speaker. As curate and parish priest, he has worked in parishes for almost thirty years. For another twenty he taught theology and religious education at St Mary’s University College in London. He writes for The Tablet and The Furrow. The main aim of his retreats, books and talks is to teach what is called the ‘sacramental imagination’, the vision of God’s incarnate presence everywhere which transforms our lives. Yet Daniel himself still struggles to be a free and authentic human being!
