Description

Gretchen Rubin is HAPPIER, and she wants you to be happier too. The #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before gets more personal than ever as she brings her practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to this lively, thought-provoking podcast. Gretchen’s cohost and guinea pig is her younger sister, Elizabeth Craft, a TV writer and producer living in Los Angeles, who (lovingly) refers to Gretchen as her happiness bully. Part of the Cadence13 Network.

you can also shut off the snooze option in Android! Thanks for the tip because it made me look at my phone to see if it's an option on Android and it is... so I deleted the option to snooze!! #winning!

I just used the Legacy Box coupon-thanks so much! I have 18 VCR tapes of my twins-who are 33 now LOL. I wanted to convert this stuff FOR-EVER, but that coupon made it more affordable for me to do so ! I have a short list of things I need to do but are involved ( converting VCR tapes being one) Now I can check this off my to-do list! Thanks again! again. )

I have a solution for the Christmas gift box. Use the tools that are available to you- in this case am electronic calendar. I keep an event in my phone for November 15th that includes anything I need to do around Christmas time but don't want to think about until then. This has made gift buying so much easier because anytime I think of something that a family member might enjoy I add it to the event for future reference. No more last minute scramble to find gifts that are sub par!

It's not right feeling guilty for eating what you felt like, especially after taking a nice walk! what's a demerit is feeling guilty for eating, which might lead or encourage eating disorders

I believe there is a similar version of this story of Picasso sitting in a cafe where 2 ladies ask to buy the napkin that he is drawing on. He quotes a huge amount and the ladies are shocked. and Picasso responds that I have been at it for over 30 / 60 years.
