Update: Mother's Day in the U.S. is May 13. If you're looking for a gift for a mother in your life, or you need a suggestion for a gift to receive, may I consider...one of my books? The Happiness Project, Happier at Home, the One-Sentence Journal for Mothers, and the coloring book strike me as especially appropriate for Mother's Day.

Or my brand new Four Tendencies video course! It's only available through tonight! Or a Four Tendencies mug!

Try This at Home: Remind yourself, "Remember, this is supposed to be fun."

Happiness Hack: We talk about two hacks to help you fall asleep: listen to the Sleep with Me podcast, and listen to an audio-book on 1/2 speed.

Know Yourself Better: Do you like to talk shop?
Listener Question: Our listener asked about what to do about her mother-in-law, who keeps giving her unwanted baby gifts.
Elizabeth's Demerit: Elizabeth has allowed her closet to get out of control.
Gretchen's Gold Star: Gold star to the planners of Central Park. It's so beautiful, all the time.
