    A helpful guide to bring more joy into your life ...

    Joyful is a very detailed look at how things in our environment can bring us joy: colours, textures, confetti, pom poms, plants, architecture..... By changing our environment we can create more joy in our lives. This simple idea is explored and backed up by research, interviews, the...

    This was a well-researched book about design and the susceptibility of the human mind to its environment. I loved the first part of the book especially when it talks about color. I?ve often felt really depressed the second I walked in to a building (like JC Penneys). Now i understa...

    Let me start by saying that I totally believe that happiness is not determined by material things. But at the same time, I believe that some things - objects- can induce a certain state of cheerfulness, of amused contentment. I have certainly observed this in my own life : I wear rathe...

    For me it took a long time to read this book because it had so many points that made me want to pause and reflect. This is a fascinating read, the last part is practical ways on bringing more joy in your life and the less appealing part of the book for me personally. However I loved th...

    I've not heard of Ingrid before I heard about this book and the first thing I did after reading the blurb was to watch her TED talk Where joy hides and how to find it; debut novel Joyful follows in a similar vein, exploring some of the main things which bring people (in general) joy an...

    Absolutely inspiring. 100% amazing. You can?t be mad after reading this book. It?s exactly what I needed in my life and perfect in every way. You need to read this book! ...

    In this warmly written book, the author explores the idea of joy - what it means to us as humans, and how and why it can be brought into our lives. The good news is that the answer seems to be that joy can be found in small, simple things. She explores the effects of different colours,...

    When did you last feel joy? First off, I have never thought of picking up a book like this before. If it wasn't for @Tabi this book would have not been touched. So! Thank you for the recommendation + buddy read!! xD I had some doubts, some concerns with reading this. So before, d...

    I received a copy of this book for my independent honest review. As I work in the Health,Wellbeing and Spiritual field I am very choosy in how this type of book is written and it needs to be workable. This was spot on. I liked the fact that each chapter was named so that different idea...

    buddy read with Ignacia!! ...

    If your home, life and circumstances are far from joyful, then look no further. In reading this book, you will embark on a journey of discovery that will alter your perspective and fully equip you to live with a greater degree of joy and peace, once you have put its principles into pra...

    Please note, my e-book copy had formatting errors that made it very difficult to read, so I have only partially read the book. What I managed to read I enjoyed - I liked the idea of colours & aesthetics having a big effect on how we feel, so making simple changes to our environment...

    I?m not going to rate this book, I abandoned it after three tries around chapter two, right after the 5-7 pages describing the energies of colour and its effect on people. I?m simply not the audience for this book and can?t appreciate the obvious time and energy the author inv...

    Amazing book, one of the best i have read so far.. I got a chance to see and attend a talk session by Ingrid in US, instantly i became a fan of her. Her concept, thinking is amazing. I watched her ted talk too, really inspired by the theory she puts with respect to finding joy in ev...

    If you like rainbows, sparkles, sunsets, hot air balloons, wide open spaces, cherry blossoms, puppies, babies, and smiles, you are not alone. This book taps into the ordinary things that create happiness in our lives and how we can purposefully and intentionally see joy in the simple a...

    Under the confetti cover, Lee puts in the leg work to confirm what we may have already suspected ? certain things can bring joy. Though occasionally overwhelming, the research and hard science sited in this book are softened by charming vignettes and enough anecdotes to keep the read...

    Amazing. This is what life should be... Ingrid has taken thoughts, ideas, and information across so many different topics and put them into one insightful book. She has managed to take most of my personal ?itches? - the things I care about, read about, and stumble upon during my...

    A helpful guide to bring more joy into your life ...

    Joyful is a very detailed look at how things in our environment can bring us joy: colours, textures, confetti, pom poms, plants, architecture..... By changing our environment we can create more joy in our lives. This simple idea is explored and backed up by research, interviews, the...

    This was a well-researched book about design and the susceptibility of the human mind to its environment. I loved the first part of the book especially when it talks about color. I?ve often felt really depressed the second I walked in to a building (like JC Penneys). Now i understa...

    Let me start by saying that I totally believe that happiness is not determined by material things. But at the same time, I believe that some things - objects- can induce a certain state of cheerfulness, of amused contentment. I have certainly observed this in my own life : I wear rathe...

    For me it took a long time to read this book because it had so many points that made me want to pause and reflect. This is a fascinating read, the last part is practical ways on bringing more joy in your life and the less appealing part of the book for me personally. However I loved th...

    I've not heard of Ingrid before I heard about this book and the first thing I did after reading the blurb was to watch her TED talk Where joy hides and how to find it; debut novel Joyful follows in a similar vein, exploring some of the main things which bring people (in general) joy an...

    This book brought sunshine to my life when I needed it the most. It feels as if a light has been turned on inside of me to pay a little more attention to how I feel throughout the day depending on things, people, places, colors etc that I am interacting with. This is a book that I will...

    Absolutely inspiring. 100% amazing. You can?t be mad after reading this book. It?s exactly what I needed in my life and perfect in every way. You need to read this book! ...

    We should manage joy in the exact opposite way that we manage money. We should spend it all, at every chance we get. Ever look around a doctor's office, a school hallway, the dentist lobby, and think, something is missing here? Spoiler alert: It's the joy. Ingrid Fetell Lee...
