Would you consider yourself happy? Or do you sometimes get a sense of discontent that you can’t quite put your finger on? This week for BORN AT DAWN LIFE, we’re focusing on Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations podcast with Gretchen Rubin - “8 Rules to Happiness”.
Gretchen was stuck one day on a packed NYC bus when she realised the years were slipping by. She asked herself, ‘What do I want from life?’ and the response was ‘To be happy’. Yet she hadn’t considered how she could be happier, what was missing and what she could add. From this epiphany, “The Happiness Project” was born- a bestselling book on how to create a more fulfilled life that blends scientific research with her own learnings.
Devoting a year to the project, she soon realised the biggest obstacle to her own contentment was… HER. So she set out to discover what happiness meant personally to her and came up with recommendations for others including the below:
One of the great things about this book is that you don’t have to drastically change your way of life after reading it- i.e. give up work and go travelling. It’s all about making small, realistic changes to your everyday life which can have extraordinary results.
Did any of you listen to the podcast or read the book? What did you think? We would love to hear your thoughts…
