I'm about halfway through this book and figured I'd share this with the community. I appreciated how the author combined an existential approach with her medical expertise to frame six "secrets" to happiness. Her perspectives on pain, movement, and resistance are pretty spot on from my own experience.

Her description of grief vs sadness for example is described below. Happy reading!

"Grief isn't quite the same as depression. Grief moves while depression stands still. When we let our grief move we don't suppress it. Instead, we focus on the love for whomever or whatever was lost and let the suffering pass through us."
