“I love this book. Strong, clever, intelligent advice with soul.” Mary Portas

Early mock-up of Happy Inside.

 

Happy Inside is a book to make you reconsider the power of home, viewing it as a vital piece in your armoury — your secret weapon to combat the stress and worries of contemporary life. In short, your home can become your super power in this ‘Age of Anxiety’. It can be your place of calm and rest, mindfulness and fortification, a refuge to recharge and reboot. It can, in short, become your place to be your best self.

Except so often, it is not. And so, Happy Inside shares, step by step simple ways to turn any abode — whether small or large, rented or owned — into a space that completely supports and promotes your good health and wellbeing. Something which right now, might just be more important than ever.

“A happy home is a fundamental building block of happiness, and Michelle’s book is an essential, step-by-step guide to creating a home we love.” Arianna Huffington

But if you think this is only about overtly up-beat ‘happy’ decor, then no. Happy Inside simply uses the framework of the home as a lens through which to explore a completely holistic view of how to live well — from the food you eat, to the importance of exercise and the power of play, right through to why a dining table is your most important piece of furniture, the benefits of good sleep, and how to regularly attain it.

Welcome to the home health revolution!
