This article on The Magic Mindset How to Find Your Happy Place is the best self-help book I have read so far, focusing on a person’s overall wellness. Preeti Shenoy gives some interesting tips about how to reduce our expenses. Instead of swiping cards, we can buy through hot cash. It would reduce unnecessary spending. If you want to purchase some items, write them down and wait for 30 days. If you still have that urge to buy, you can proceed with buying it. During this lockdown, many of them have lost their jobs. The writer gives some valuable tips to convert our interesting hobbies into an occupation in this book.

About this Book

Sometimes, it’s not easy to find the silver lining.

While positivity is about looking at the bright side of things, the magic mindset embraces and accepts that it is not always possible to do so. Sometimes things get so bleak that our mind refuses to accept that there can be a silver lining.

In this book, Preeti Shenoy gives you a set of principles for every area of life, designed to help us shift our perspective from hopelessness to hope, from despondency to joy, from cynicism to belief – a belief that change is coming, and things are not as bad as they seem.

Perfect reading for the difficult times that we are living in, The Magic Mindset is full of tips, suggestions, fun exercises and practical advice on career, family, health, relationships, finances, social media, and more. It also includes inspiring stories and anecdotes from Preeti’s own life. A cornerstone for all those who want to change their outlook, The Magic Mindset helps us build a purposeful and joyful life.

Casket of Motivation

The Magic Mindset is a casket of motivation, wisdom and knowledge, written in a very simple form which helps the reader to understand and implement the exercises given after every topic in the book. It is written from the personal experiences of the author and social experiments. The exercises given in the book are very helpful, they will let you take a break from your busy schedule and to think about yourself deeply and analyse your inner feelings and goals, so that you can complete the exercises.

There are few topics in this book which became my absolute favourite they are:

1. Re-tuning our mindset from The Magic Mindset can alter reality.
2. Want it badly, and believe it is coming from Magic Mindset for Money.
3. Take out time to put in the work from Magic Mindset for Relationships.
4. Doing a ‘ meal prep’ from Magic Mindset for Good Health.
5. Don’t force yourself to calm down from Magic Mindset for Exams and Interviews.

I personally felt a sense of self-realisation and calmness after reading this book. It helped me cope with some of the issues I was suffering recently.

This is a highly recommended book, and the fourteen days activity challenge in the book is really fun and engaging.

Answers to questions by Preeti Shenoy (The Magic Mindset How to Find Your Happy Place)

1) What brings you to write this book? What is it that you want to send out into the world via this book?

I began the 21 days of positivity when the first lockdown started in 2020. At that time we naively believed that the lockdown would be only for 21 days. We were all in shock, and unaware of what was to come. As the lockdowns kept getting extended and the situation began getting more and more terrifying, a lot of people found it very hard to stay positive. They were locked inside their homes, finding it hard to cope. Many wrote to me saying that on some days it was only my posts and writing that kept them afloat. They urged me to write a book about it, and this book is the result of that.

The message I want to send out –No matter what your situation, there’s an alternate way of looking at it, and it is possible to feel joy

2) In the challenging times that we live in today, do you feel a mindset reset is difficult to attempt or do you think it’s possible to do with the right guidance/prompt/inspiration

I think just like we can train our muscles in the gym, we can train our mind to think in a certain way. It does require that you put in the work, and make a conscious effort. A mindset reset is indeed possible, but the basic thing is you have to want it, and believe that a change is possible. It all depends on what you choose to focus on and prioritise.

3) Self help is an overly subscribed section when it comes to book, would you say your book is more about the practice rather than the theory? That it’s about self work rather than self introspection only, because we’ve enough of the latter but few books actually lay out or lead us towards the goal?

Yes, my book is definitely more about the practice. I have laid out the principles in every area–health, relationships, finances etc. But to put them into practice, I have also given a lot of tools. Throughout the book there are questions which require you to think. There are small tasks which you will need to complete. I’ve also shared incidents from my own life, as well as inspiring stories of other people. There is also a 14 day positivity challenge at the end of the book, which you can do if you feel that you need a little push.

4) Is finding ‘your happy place’ a sort of refuge or is it more a conscious state of being that you think we need to practice being in?

It is not a refuge at all. The book does not take a ‘pollyanna-ish approach’ by pretending everthing is okay, and we have to look at the bright side, while ignoring realities which might be harsh. The ‘happy place‘ i refer to is within us. It involves recognising what we already have and making small changes in how we apporoach things and being content with the progress we make.

5) How did you imagine the book to be while writing it? And now that it’s about to release this month, do you think its shape and form adhere to your vision?

I did not have a vision for this book at all. I was simply pouring my heart out into it, in a genuine bid to help people. Everyone was feeling devastated and I wanted to show them that it is possible to feel joy and hope again. I am delighted to say it has far exceeded my expectations! The various sections deal with every possible situation in life, and there are practice exercises you can do to take your power back.

6) While it’s a book to read, would you also say it’s a pathway to practice being more purposeful?

I think it is more of a ‘practical guide to a happier life’. It doesn’t prescribe a one-size-fits-all solution,. Instead it encourages you to think deeper about the issues that are bothering you. It gently points out alternatives. Then it lets you make the decisions that are best for you.

7) Social media has become such a space for projecting an ideal reality which could be potion for some and poison for the others. Do you think that a gear shift in one’s approach to one’s own lives in relation to what exists out there is needed? Does your book help with that?

There’s an entire chapter on social media and how to deal with the negative impacts of it. We cannot avoid it altogether, because especially in times like ours, it isour connection to the outside world. Yet it can be toxic. I have addressed all of these in my book.

8) What do you want your readers to get from The Magic Mindset?

I want them to find their happy place. I want them to feel joyful, hopeful and enthusiastic about life. If this book helps them to do that, I’d be overjoyed.
