Note: I thought my Four Tendencies book would be small, but it has turned out to be BIG. In fact, I was already working on my next big project! If you want to hear when my book about the Four Tendencies is ready, sign up here.
Before-and-After stories from our listeners: So fascinating! Readers talked about using lots of different ideas.
Once again, I find myself talking about hard-boiled eggs and my Krups egg-cooker.
Our Favorite Moments: Elizabeth loved hearing from the listener who did the detailed analysis of her voice, and episode 30, when my daughter Eliza was our guest. Remember, Eliza now has a podcast of her own, Eliza Starting at 16 (she does the entire thing herself), so if you want to hear more from her, check it out.
I loved episode 10, when we recorded in Elizabeth’s closet as we cleared her clutter.
Henry played his favorite “Classic Gretch” and “Classic Liz” moments. You can hear us laughing in the background.
Gretchen’s Demerit: A friend and I started a big project featuring our two daughters, but we’ve stalled out. I need to re-start it. The project I mentioned is Four to Llewelyn’s Edge. Update: I followed Elizabeth’s advice, and my friend and I scheduled a meeting to re-start our project.
Elizabeth’s Gold Star: Elizabeth gives a gold star to her in-laws, for being willing cheerfully to help out, even when it’s a hassle.
As always, thanks to our terrific sponsors

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!
