[MOVED] Happier with Gretchen Rubin

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.

Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft have a trick for using the word 'meditation' to enhance boring situations. They also discuss the tricky but common stumbling block of parenting competitiveness. Then they share some listener ANSWERS to earlier questions about recipes, photos, artwork and family updates. Liz's demerit this week is about her less than perfect skin care routine. Gretchen's gold star involves a wonderfully empathetic listener, and some tips about how we can all become better listeners ourselves.

Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft ask themselves, "What happens if I ignore this?" and notice that a lot of potential anxieties never bubble up just by asking this simple phrase.

And of course Gretchen's demerit, which involves a duvet cover, and Liz's gold star about reality TV.
