It’s time for the next installment of Happier with Gretchen Rubin.
We’re coming up on our second anniversary of the show! To celebrate, we want to do an episode of highlights from the previous year. So if you have a favorite try-this-at-home, a great before-and-after story of something you tried, a favorite funny moment, let us know. Email us at [email protected] or call 77-HAPPY-336.
Try This at Home: Pick your moment. When we mindfully choose the moment for a challenging conversation or task, we do better. Easier said than done.
Happiness Hack: If the traditional Valentine's day isn't working for you, celebrate a different relationship in your life -- maybe your relationship with yourself, with friends, with siblings.
Deep Dive: We take a look at the #Happier2017 project on Instagram. We had so much fun with this -- we enjoyed posting our own photos, and even more, seeing what other people posted.
Listener Question: Clare asks, "I'm trying to get pregnant, and it's hard not to feel a pang when I'm around people who are pregnant or when I see newborn babies. How do I stay happy?"
Demerit: I get a repeat demerit for not making an appointment to get my hair cut.
Gold Star: Elizabeth gives her seven-year-old Jack a gold star for being "Star of the Week" at school, and presenting in front of his class.
