A couple of people have told me about The Happiness Project, so I decided to check it out. Here's the overview from Barnes & Noble:
"Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.
In this lively and compelling account, Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference."
Now that my 30th birthday is right around the corner, I've decided to start my own Happiness Project beginning in October and going for an entire year. I plan on writing about my ongoing project in this blog, so you will get to see which parts of my life I've decided to work on and also hear about how the project has (hopefully) changed my life for the better. Stay tuned for more!
Have you done your own Happiness Project? If so, I'd love to hear about it. Please share your experience in the comments section!
