Video: Stop the Nagging. You’ll Be Happier!

2010 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2010 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2010 a happier year – and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge -- last month’s theme was Fun. Last week's theme was to Start a collection. Did you try to follow that resolution? Did it help to boost your happiness?

I also recently re-posted the book video for The Happiness Project, which lists a lot of my favorite resolutions. What resolutions have you tried? I want to do a companion video that lists OTHER people's favorite resolutions, so please add your resolution in the comments below, if you have one that's worked well for you. I hope to do that video soon.

Back to the Challenge -- this month's theme is Family, and this week’s resolution is to Stop the nagging.

(Many of you have sent me thoughtful emails with suggestions about how to improve the quality of the videos. Check it out! See if you think it looks better.)
