The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin

What is happiness and how can we bring more of it into our lives? Gretchen Rubin asked herself this question because although she fulfilled all the prerequisites for a happy life – an intact family, a good job and enough money for a rainy day – she found herself frequently unhappy. During her year-long Happiness Project, she read about various techniques and theories on increasing happiness and tried to become happier with their help.

 

  • Anyone who wants to boost the little bits of happiness in their everyday lives
  • Anyone looking for ideas and theories about happiness
  • Anyone in need of concrete suggestions about how to establish a balance between work, social life, family and self-fulfillment

 

 

Gretchen Rubin studied law but decided to become a writer instead. Thanks to her blog, The Happiness Project, she became a famous blogger. In addition, she has written biographies of Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy, as well as several self-help bestsellers, such as Power Money Fame Sex.
