The Happiness Project

"The days are long, but the years are short." Rubin's epiphany one rainy afternoon made her realize that she did not focus her life on what really matters, so she set out on a year-long project to become happier. This book is a chronicle of that year--what she tried, as well as the lessons that she learned. Each month, she tackled a new set of resolutions--from boosting energy, making time for friends, and simply paying mindful attention to what is going on. This project has not only made the author happier, but now inspires millions of others who follow in her footsteps using her tools through the Happiness Project Toolbox.
