Book Review – The Happiness Project & Happier at Home

Oh my gawd.  You guys?  These books have seriously changed.my.life.

In The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin assigns each month with a theme.  Throughout each month, she has specific, measurable resolutions that correspond with that month’s theme.  While some were obvious (“Go to Bed Earlier – January), others were not so obvious (“Do a Virtual Move” – January).  I especially enjoyed and needed the chapters on marriage and work, which are two of my biggest sources of happiness.

 

In Happier at Home, Mrs. Rubin embarks on a second happiness project, but this time each theme focuses on her home life and also takes place during the school year.  There were some decent resolutions and lessons to be learned in her second project, but frankly, it wasn’t as life changing as her original work.
