The Happiness Project


With midterms swiftly approaching I am writing this in the ten minute break of my oceanography class. However... I wanted to share something new with you all! It is called the Happiness Project and here are some details about it :)

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.

Although my time is heavily scheduled, finding time to be happy is the most important thing you can do. Staying sane is becoming an increasing problem when the only time I have to myself everyday is in the shower. I am planning a complete life renovation but it is going to take a lot of time and work, but having guidelines (like those proposed on can really help set you on the right path. 

Happy Friday
