I’ve been interested in reading The Happiness Project (2009) by Gretchen Rubin for awhile, but it took awhile for me to find it at the library for kindle. I’ve come across a couple of fascinating psychological tidbits about happiness that defy common sense, and I thought it would be cool to learn more.
Rubin is a happily married, mother of two young girls, who lives in New York City–right off the park and next to the library. She decided to spend a year working on various aspects of her happiness and writing about it. In preparation, Rubin read a lot of books on the subject and created a plan for herself. She focused on: energy, marriage, her kids, her work, and living in the moment, among others.
I’ve had some mixed feelings about this one. Click here to find out the details.
