A Little Happier: We're all getting geared up for 2017, and January 1 is often a prompt that people use to reflect on ways to make life happier in the new year.
This week's holiday hack is to choose one word, or a short phrase, to sum up what we want to focus on for the new year. When we distill our aims into a single word or phrase, it's easier to remember it -- and to take action.
In the past, I've picked words and phrases like "Upgrade" and "Lighten Up." This year, I'm picking "Re-purpose." I want to tackle the question: How can I make more of what I already have?
Elizabeth has picked words like "Free Time," "Style," "Hot Wheels," "Novel" -- this year, she's picking "Home." Her renovation is finally almost finished!
If this one-word theme "Home" appeals to you, you might enjoy my book Happier at Home -- it's all about how to be (surprise) happier at home.
In the past, we've heard from listeners that they've picked terrific, thought-provoking one-word themes like Adventure, Renew, Energize, Travel, Rest, Finish.
