About Happiness Upgrade Press

Happiness Upgrade Press founder Gabrielle Lichterman

Happiness Upgrade Press was founded in 2021 by Gabrielle Lichterman, a longtime health and personal finance journalist and award-winning author. This small independent publishing company publishes nonfiction self-help books that focus on health and wellness, personal finance and educational entertainment.

The DIY Résumé and Cover Letter Kit (2021) was the first book published by Happiness Upgrade Press. However, this book wasn’t originally scheduled to launch the press. When the COVID-19 pandemic spread around the globe in 2020 and millions lost their jobs or reconsidered their work lives, Gabrielle quickly realized that helping folks find new employment was a top concern. Since the mission of Happiness Upgrade Press is to improve the lives of readers, she rearranged the press’s publishing schedule to accommodate this important need. DIY Résumé and Cover Letter Kit debuted as the #1 new release in résumé books and has consistently been an Amazon bestseller.

The newest title from this indie press, The Happiness Upgrade: One Small Step Up To A Happier Life, was originally slated to be the launch book, and for obvious reasons: The publishing company is named after it!

While slightly delayed, its goal is no less important: Published March 2022, this self-help book introduces readers to the Happiness Upgrade method–a simple technique that shows you how to pause unwanted negative moods and boost positivity in moments. It does this by transforming any small act of self-care (such as sipping a cup of tea, opening the window for fresh air or even just putting a pillow onto your chair) into a powerful tool to boost your mood. This book also includes a 52-week journal so readers can track their progress when using this method and 52 easy, study-backed self-care tactics to get readers started right away.

The Happiness Upgrade is the first in a new “Upgrade” series, which will be followed by books that show readers how small moves can help them upgrade their sleep, energy and other aspects of their health and well-being. All books in this collection will also include 52-week journals to help readers track their progress.
