The Aesthetics of Joy runs counter to the prevailing idea that happiness is about mind over matter. In the author's view, many of us are not sufficiently aware that colour, texture, form and movement can make a great difference to how we feel. Hence the mundane objects we interact with on a daily basis can have a surprising effect on our emotions. Our current obsession with turning inward (through techniques such as mindfulness and yoga) is cutting us off from our natural inclination to seek joy outside ourselves, and current research in neuroscience and Positive Psychology is now underpinning these ideas, that happiness is not only something we find, but something we can make. In this major work, the author offers many suggestions for what we can do, and how we can rearrange our environments, to feel better.
