WHY WE THINK THE HAPPINESS PROJECT ROCKS: DIY Life Coaching!
A few years ago, bestselling writer Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany on the cross-town bus. She asked herself what she wanted from life, decided that she wanted to be happy, and then started a project as a companion on her search for happiness, which turned into a successful blog, which was then turned into a New York Times bestselling book.
Every Wednesday, Gretchen posts a list of tips about how to be happier; every Friday, she proposes a resolution for your own happiness project, and every Sunday, she posts a quotation to get readers thinking more deeply about happiness. It's like having your very own life coach.
