Product Details


“After perhaps one of the most a­nxiety-ridden years in our recent history, this book by wellness founder Poppy Jamie is a welcome read . . . [Jamie] details her work with mental health experts and researchers to uncover effective brain-rewiring strategies. Through her experience, you̕ll glean advice on how to be more adaptable and accepting of our very uncertain world.”—mindbodygreen

“Poppy is one of my favorite voices in the world, always in pursuit of understanding, information, and empathy.”—Jameela Jamil

Happy Not Perfect is a must-read if perfectionism, comparing yourself to others, and thinking you’re inadequate is taking you down. The strategies here are well thought out, practical, easy to implement, effective, and life-changing. Using them, you’ll experience breakthroughs that lead to less anxiety, more emotional freedom, and genuine connection with others. Thank you, Poppy Jamie, for gifting us with your FLEX approach!”—Joan Rosenberg, PhD, author of 90 Seconds to a Life You Love

“For the past four years Poppy has been campaigning for better mental well-being education and accessible tools. She is inspirational and makes complex problems easy to understand. She teaches when you don’t think you’re being taught, so suddenly you leave a conversation with Poppy feeling amazing and realizing you know so much more than before you started. She’s on speed dial when I need some words of wisdom mid-crisis!”—Suki Waterhouse

“What Poppy does in Happy Not Perfect is marshal the evidence from a legion of world-renowned thinkers, living and dead, to demonstrate the reality that striving for perfection is counter-productive, that before we can be happy we must offer ourselves compassion and ultimately, that the solution to our own happiness is not external but internal. She offers innumerable examples and practical techniques that gives us the tools necessary to be the architects of our own happiness and recognize that to be happy, one doesn’t have to be perfect.”—James R. Doty, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart and founder and director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University

“I believe mental health is one of the most important things to address in our society today so that it can become more widely accepted and less ʽshameful’ to talk about. That’s why it’s called mental HEALTH after all. The work that Poppy has done to normalize and celebrate the conversation around mental health has been beyond generous. I’m so grateful to have gotten to know her beautiful soul. From the minute you meet her, you can immediately sense that her mission in life is to help others.”—Julianne Hough

Happy Not Perfect takes what I teach people in therapy and puts it all in a book you can keep by your side.”—Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
