You know me and setting goals/striving for improved awesomeness. Well, here’s a podcast that may have been designed for me.
Another sister podcast! Happier is a fantastic podcast with author Gretchen Rubin and her sister Elizabeth. It’s a fun, relaxed podcast that is pretty much hitting it out of the park every episode. There are practical tips and questions to help us be happier. Thoughtful but conversational, wise but funny, and really powerful.
From her website:
“Gretchen Rubin is the author of several books, including the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, Better Than Before, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. In Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives, she provides surprising insights and practical advice drawn from cutting-edge research, ancient wisdom, and her own observations, about how we can make our lives better than before. She investigates the multiple strategies she’s identified that help us make and break our habits. After all, habits are the invisible architecture of a happy life, and when we change our habits, we change our lives. The secret to changing a habit? First, we must know ourselves, so we can suit our habits to our own nature. It was Gretchen’s longstanding interest in happiness that led her to the study of habits, because when she talked to people about their happiness challenges, they often pointed to a habit that they couldn’t make or break. This pattern made her ask, “When and why can people successfully change a habit—or not?””
