I popped the pink pill into my mouth and waited for the expected feelings of ecstasy. No, the pill wasn't the drug XTC, but rather a legal and safe alternative. Then I put on my trans-cranial stimulation device and waited to see what happened. Wow! After about five minutes, it felt like my brain was flooding me with endorphins. After a few minutes of this frenzied euphoria, I took off the device and went about my day. Having just been catapulted into sweet ecstasy, my day became both incredibly productive and happy.
This is not a future scenario. This is how I like to start my mornings. Nowadays, there are new and improved ways to feel good—even ecstatic—that most people don't know anything about. From safe drugs to "happy apps," to high tech brain stimulation devices, a whole new world of ways to feel good is blossoming.
We live in an age where everything is shifting and accelerating. Yet, most people still pursue an ancient path for finding happiness. Their formula for being happy is to try to control all the external events and people in their lives to be exactly the way they want. This is a tiresome activity at best, and there are always some events and people that we can't control—thus leading to endless frustration and stress. However, there is a new model for finding more joy and peace of mind: find it within your self. Of course, this is a not a new idea. Everyone from the Buddha to Jesus has said that heaven can be found within, but now there are cutting edge and more efficient ways to tap into this magical kingdom.
Some of my favorite happiness hacks involve taking certain supplements that help me to feel focused, energized, and joyous. I list over a dozen of them in my book. Popping a safe pill in your mouth is a much easier way to find happiness than trying to control every person and situation in your life to be the way you want! In this book, you'll discover 101 easy and little known ways to feel more joy. You'll learn about methods ranging from a $1 gadget for feeling intense pleasure, to a free app that really leads to more depth and peace in your life. Read about how:

As science fiction writer William Gibson once said, "The future is already here—it's just not very evenly distributed." Happily, these products, apps, and supplements already exist, and can be learned about in my book. Many of them cost less than a latte, but their effects can last much, much longer. Fortunately, much of this future is already here to discover for those who are curious enough to pursue it.
