The Mood Elevator

Book Description

Enjoy the Ride!


We all ride the Mood Elevator up and down every day. How well we do it impacts our relationships, our personal effectiveness, our career, and our experience of life. Most people take that ride for granted—but what if we knew the right buttons to push to move to the top?

In this very practical guide, Larry Senn provides an operating manual to keep you out of the emotional basement. He shows how to interrupt negative thought patterns that keep you stuck on a lower floor—depressed, stressed, anxious, judgmental—and move higher by cultivating mental attitudes like curiosity and gratitude. Through Senn's decades of work as a consultant, the Mood Elevator has been enthusiastically embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. By sharing his work with a wider audience, Senn hopes to help all of us live life at our best.
