Even before the pandemic brought on a crushing wave of stress, anxiety, isolation and financial struggle, there was a growing mental health crisis - exacerbated by a digital-first culture that is putting untold pressure on a generation of young people. Poppy Jamie has made it her life's mission to do something about this and share the actionable, science-backed solutions we can all use to rewire our daily thoughts and break damaging patterns for good - those same ones that she used to piece herself back together after suffering from chronic anxiety and burnout.

Happy Not Perfect, the book, sets out her 'Four-Step Flex Framework' that will enable readers to bend and stretch their negative thought pathways into better shape, unravel their emotional blockages, raise their energy levels, move through challenges with confidence and create a life aligned with their deepest values and aspirations.

Blending cutting-edge science from the world's leading experts, straight-talking spirituality and the very soul of Poppy's own experiences. She is an author who's been there and wants to equip us with the tools, knowledge and methods we can use to navigate our hardest days, become adaptable, re-write old habits and fears and snap us out of autopilot, to start building a brighter future.

Poppy says 'The Flex is about committing to compassionate action to change our realities. Life will never be perfect, and our happiness lies in the beautiful acceptance of that. This book is about digging deeper into our psyche to heal the root of our thinking and as we all carry emotional wounds, micro or macro, taking the time to understand the root of the stories we tell ourselves, is essential in rewriting new scripts moving forward'.

'Poppy is one of my favourite voices in the world, always in pursuit of understanding, information, and empathy.'
- Jameela Jamil

'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

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 'shameful' 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

Poppy's powerful approach will help you take control of your thoughts so they don't control you.'
- Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
