Gretchen Rubin

Join a group

One of the happiness-project resolutions that I’ve found to be most effective – and also the most fun – is to join or start a group.

Being part of a group is a terrific way to make new friends, deepen existing friendships, have fun, create a sense of belonging, and spend time thinking about a subject that interests you.

People all over the world have started groups for people doing happiness projects together. These groups swap ideas, build enthusiasm, give encouragement, and – perhaps most important – hold each other accountable. (Think AA and Weight Watchers.)

If you’d like help launching a group for people doing happiness projects together, email me at grubin at gretchenrubin dot com to get a copy of the starter kit.

If you’re looking for a group in your area, here’s the current list. (If you don’t see contact information, the group isn’t taking new members.) A plea! If you’re in a group, please let me know by answering six quick questions. I want to know about your group.
