THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin
The 1st of the month already and, with three more months to go till the end of the year, I have a great book for you to start now so that you can plan now ready to start in the new year!?! Cryptic enough for you? I’m talking about starting your own Happiness Project. Or in my case, I’m calling it My Velvet Evolution.
‘The Happiness Project’, by Gretchen Rubin, chronicles her year long adventures as she ‘test drives the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier’. The book details each month’s subject matter, and encourages you to look at your own life and think about what 12 areas of your life you would focus on and improve in order to make you feel happier. The book isn’t about radical change or saying ‘life sucks, lets make it better’, its about looking at our already privileged lives and asking what we can do to appreciate it and feel happier every day.
Ultimately, this is a great opportunity to feel empowered in the life you are living.
I’ll be starting my Velvet Evolution in January 2013 and I’d love to hear about your thoughts on the book and possible plans for a Happiness Project / Velvet Evolution of your own.
