Why We Say No to Pleasure. 27. A Developmental History of Delight.

Our happiness, or the lack of it, is a ubiquitous concern-even the Declaration of Independence talks about it-and books on attaining that goal are likely to appeal to a number of readers. Why We Say No to Pleasure. Stella Resnick, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Beverly Hills, California, and the author of The Pleasure Zone: Why We Resist Good Feelings & How to Let Go and Be Happy.

Resnick writes in an appealing manner about how to enjoy nine core pleasures (primal, pain, relief, play, mental, emotional, sensual, sexual, and spiritual). The easy-to-read chapters are followed by specific exercises to help readers gain skills in various areas. In The Pleasure Zone, Stella Resnick offers a number of personal experiments for increasing pleasure.

Stella Resnick has been concerned about how to help people stop focusing on what's wrong in their lives and start noticing what's right since 1978 when she wrote a ground-breaking article for New Age Journal that turned the therapy world on its ear and prompted hundreds of letters asking for more.

The Pleasure Zone book. This idea made me really happy

The Pleasure Zone book. The ability to enjoy ourselves affects our health  . This idea made me really happy. I spent several hours pondering what my ideal afterlife, and the more I thought about it, the happier I got. It's not that complicated: in my ideal afterlife, we'd all still be able to eat, and sleep, and create, and dance, and do all the things we like to do now, but we wouldn't have to. Everybody's needs would be met, so we'd be totally free to pursue the top of Maslow's pyramid: self-actualization. You could still help people, but they wouldn't suffer if you didn't, because they have everything they need.

There is an enormous untapped potential for pleasure in every one of us that has yet to be fully explored. So says psychologist Stella Resnick who, for more that twenty years, has been helping people stop focusing on what's wrong in their lives and begin noticing what's right. Stella Resnick recognises that people often have a fixed ceiling on how much pleasure they think they can tolerate. In this ground-breaking work she clears these boundaries of pleasure by linking optimism, physical health, emotional fulfilment in love, deeply gratifying sex and positive ageing to our ability to enjoy eight core pleasures which she identifies. Complete with inspiring stories of people who have learnt to reclaim pleasures they have cut themselves off from, each chapter concludes with a set of simple personal experiments designed to aid readers in gaining skill at enjoying that pleasure more completely.

This book is both entertaining and scholarly, striking the perfect balance between providing moving personal accounts, background information, and practical suggestions and exercises to practice the theories in your own life. It has changed me, and life is so much more pleasurable than it was before. Thank you Stella Resnick!

I enjoyed this book. What made the book REAL for me was the fact that the author was willing to share her own personal experiences with abuse in her own childhood - very frank and courageous which made everything she wrote real and challenging to me and can be for any one who has found themselves "stuck" and looking to learn how to think "outside the box". I would recommend this book - as learning how to allow happiness and to

change the negative ways we sabotage our own personal happiness is just great and life affirming. A challenge to anyone seeking to change their life at any stage.

Pleasure is not only sex and comfort. The book details many areas where pleasure is overlooked, but can improve the quality of our lives.

"In The Pleasure Zone, Stella Resnick offers a number of personal experiments for increasing pleasure. Here's one: 'In a relaxed and experimental frame of mind, look around the area surrounding you and see what pleases you visually. You may see a print in a frame or a pretty view out your window. Look for vividness of color, a pattern of geometric shapes, lines converging and separating, a metallic sheen or patina, a play of light and shadows. Then close your eyes and see what you can recall of what you just saw. What images or colors stand out for you? Open your eyes and compare the true image with what you imagine.' Enhancing visual memory sharpens our ability to truly see what is in front of us, the world in all its majesty and splendor." (review by M.J.Ryan, author of The Happiness Makeover)
