Dr. Roberto Jimenez has just published a concise and easy-to-read book entitled Be Happy Now: After All, Happiness Is Our True Nature. Dr. Jimenez, a psychotherapist and licensed mental healthcare professional, has dissected the concept of happiness in his book. He finds the cues and triggers that generate happiness and helps keep this state for a long time.
Dr. Jimenez is an advocate of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an area in which he has extensive experience and expertise. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a form of psychological treatment that is evidence-based in its applications and effectiveness. It is based on the common-sense model of the relationships among cognition, emotion, and behavior, concentration.
Three aspects of cognition that are incorporated in CBT include:
– Automatic thoughts,
– Cognitive distortions, and
– Underlying beliefs or schemas
CBT could help people recognize and change their distorted thoughts and address their skewed underlying beliefs. The book states that CBT could be handy in dealing with conditions like anxiety, depression, eating disorders, marital issues, and even the use of drugs and alcohol. These are the elements that have a direct connection to one’s state of happiness.
By educating the targeted audience, Be Happy Now: After All, Happiness Is Our True Nature helps people change their patterns. By readjusting these patterns, one can get rid of unhealthy thinking and better understand people’s motivations and behaviors.
