It has been especially thrilling that so many people have listened already — at one point, we were #6 on iTunes! Yowza.
Here’s what we discuss in this episode:
Try This at Home
One of the easiest, most popular habits that will boost your happiness–and it’s not what you might expect. Make your bed. I have to say, this is something that people mention to me all the time.
Happiness Stumbling Block
Free food — especially at work. In this discussion, Elizabeth mentions the Abstainer vs. Moderator distinction, which we talked about in an earlier podcast — you can listen to that conversation, here.
Do you think that thinking about happiness makes you happier?
I snarled at a security guard who asked to look in my bag. Sheesh. I feel terrible every time I think about it.
Elizabeth gives a shout-out to L.A.’s Fryman Canyon. And here she is, about to set off — she’s got her headphones so she can listen to podcasts while she hikes. (That’s a good example of the Strategy of Pairing, by the way.)
If you listen, let us know — does making your bed make you happier, or not? Do you resent free food at work, or do you love it?
