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: Have a "life story conversation." If you want to listen to the episode of The Onward Project podcast Radical Candor where they discuss this idea, check out episode 5.

Happiness Hack: Mary suggests, "When clothes are in bad shape, so that I can't give them away, I pack them, and wear them one last time on the trip, and then leave them behind." This is an especially great tip for under-buyers.

Happiness Stumbling Block: The news. So many people have emailed and called to say, "How do I manage the emotional toll of the news?" It's a big question.

Elizabeth mentions Sarah's Facebook group: #OurFirst100Days.

Demerit: Elizabeth's battle with the game Candy Crush continues. Have you tried unsuccessfully to delete a soul-destroying app?

Gold Star: How I love the New York City subway system, especially the new stops on the Q line.
