“Statistically, the probability of any one of us being here is so small that you’d think the mere fact of existing would keep us all in a contented dazzlement of surprise.” – Lewis Thomas 

TGTzivia Gover opened her author talk Thursday evening with these words from author Lewis Thomas, setting the mood for the audience who filled Commonwealth Salon at the Central Library in Copley Square on a bitter cold winter night.

If the crowd was there to learn how to start 2016 with a different, more positive mindset, their mission was accomplished, as Gover read tips and tricks from her new book, Joy in Every Moment: Mindful Exercises for Waking to the Wonders of Ordinary Life.

Strategies from the described “life coach in a book” evolved around becoming an active participant in obtaining happiness. Gover described shifting one’s mindset from thinking of happiness and joy as emotions that come from external factors, to a feeling we can find from within. Techniques to make this modification include meditation, taking moments in your busy life to affirm that you are a “divine joy,” and allowing yourself to experience a full range of emotions, including sorrow.

Check out Joy in Every Moment, as well as Gover’s top ten favorite books of inspiration.
