What if you could change your life—without changing your life? Gretchen had a good marriage, two healthy daughters, and work she loved—but one day, stuck on a city bus, she realized that time was flashing by, and she wasn't thinking enough about the things that really mattered. "I should have a happiness project," she decided. She spent the next year test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific studies, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier.
Each month, she pursued a different set of resolutions: go to sleep earlier, quit nagging, forget about results, or take time to be silly. Bit by bit, she began to appreciate and amplify the happiness that already existed in her life. Written with humour and insight, Gretchen's story will inspire you to start your own happiness project.
Now in a beautiful, expanded edition, Gretchen offers a wealth of new material including happiness paradoxes and practical tips on many daily matters: being a more light-hearted parent, sticking to a fitness routine, getting your sweetheart to do chores without nagging, coping when you forget someone's name and more.
