Update: Elizabeth’s trip to New York City, sadly, got cancelled.
Try This at Home: Take one thing with you. A clutter-busting strategy. Yes, this is so simple that it sounds dumb, but try it!
We also talk about under-buyers and over-buyers.
Listener Question: “I have a lot to be grateful for, but I still don’t call myself a happy person. Why?”
Elizabeth works in a plug for my Super Soul Sunday appearance with Oprah. What a nice sister.

Call for comments, questions, observations!
In a few weeks, we’re going to do a round-up episode on the Four Tendencies. We’ve had so many great comments from listeners, so we want to highlight some responses — and we want more. In particular, we want to throw out a few questions.
Can you think of some famous examples of the Four Tendencies? For instance, Hermione Granger. Textbook Upholder!
Do you like your Tendency? Why or why not?
Obligers, if you’re experiencing Obliger-rebellion, I’d love to hear your experience. Especially how you got out of Obliger-rebellion.
If you’re paired with a Rebel, at home or at work, how does that work for you?

How to Subscribe
If you’re like me (until recently) you’re intrigued by podcasts, but you don’t know how to listen or subscribe. It’s very easy, really. Really. To listen to more than one episode, and to have it all in a handier way, on your phone or tablet, it’s better to subscribe. Really, it’s easy.
Want to know what to expect from other episodes of the podcast, when you listen to “Happier with Gretchen Rubin?” We talk about how to build happier habits into everyday life, as we draw from cutting-edge science, ancient wisdom, lessons from pop culture—and our own experiences (and mistakes). We’re sisters, so we don’t let each other get away with much!
