How to be happier at home
Author Gretchen Rubin is back after her New York Times besteller The Happiness Project with yet another venture into what happiness really is and how to find it. This time, Rubin explores being Happier at Home, delving into a variety of projects and resolutions. If you're looking for a book about home organization, though, you've come to the wrong place.
Instead, Rubin reminds herself (and readers) to read the manual, to kiss her husband more, and to go on Wednesday adventures with her daughter. She writes about protecting her children's free time, embracing good smells, and trying acupuncture. And with every resolution or habit she embraces, her life -- she claims -- becomes a little bit happier.
Written in the same style as The Happiness Project, Happier at Home goes month-by-month -- beginning in September -- with Rubin's resolutions. Critics might say Rubin has already said all that needed to be said regarding happiness, but Happier at Home remains fresh. Sure, the overall concept's a little redundant, but who doesn't need a refresher course on being -- and staying -- happy?
Plus, we think Happier at Home is a great read to kick off this fall season. Haven't you heard? September's the new January!
