It’s time for the next installment of  “Happier with Gretchen Rubin.

Update: In episode 64, we introduced the segment of the "Happiness Hack." Some listeners sent us their favorite hacks. Keep sending them in! We love reading them.

Try This at Home: Have room of your own. Maybe not an entire room, but some room.

Happiness Stumbling Block: The incomplete upgrade. Have you experienced this?

Listener Question: Missy "I'm moving in with my boyfriend. I don't have a TV, but my boyfriend has one. How do I avoid spending too much time on the couch?"

Gretchen’s Demerit: I didn't warn my daughter that once her cellphone screen cracked, she should go ahead and get it fixed, even though the phone was still working. Why? Because inevitably it will stop working at the most inconvenient possible time. Which it did.

 Elizabeth’s Gold Star: Elizabeth gives a gold star to summer traffic in Los Angeles.

Remember,  I’m doing weekly live videos on my Facebook Page about the podcast. To join the conversation, tune in Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
