My sister Elizabeth Craft and I are having so much fun with our new podcast,  “Happier with Gretchen Rubin.

For the last few weeks, I've been on my book tour for Better Than Before, and many people have told me that they’re enjoying it. Thanks so much, and thanks for listening! (If you like the podcast, we're sheepishly asking people to rate and/or review it, if time and inclination permit; very helpful for a new podcast like ours.)

Here’s what we discuss in today’s episode:

Try This at Home: Try a weekly "Power Hour." This is a habit that's working very well for me; Elizabeth is intrigued.

Know Yourself Better: Ask yourself the uncomfortable question, "Whom do I envy?"

Listener Question: Our first recorded listener question! “Is there any science behind the happiness we get happiness from helping others?"

Elizabeth’s Demerit: Elizabeth learns, the hard way, about the importance of backing up the data on your smart-phone. On the bright side, though, her Candy Crush account was wiped out! If you listened to episode #2, you know that Elizabeth was battling a serious Candy Crush habit. Now she's free.

Gretchen’s Gold Star: I give a gold star to our father, who always remind us to "Enjoy the process."
