#mind #happier

I have loved reading Gretchen Rubin’s books focused on happiness and habits, and I love podcasts.  So I was especially excited when I learned that Gretchen has a new podcast!  Happier With Gretchen Rubin is now in my main podcast rotation.

PodcastHappierLogoA recent episode talked about “The Power of Envy” – which resonated with me.  Gretchen talked about how much we can learn about when and why we feel envy.  She felt envious when she read about law school classmates who had writing careers; I feel similarly envious when I hear about friends, classmates, strangers who have published a book.  (Currently, I can’t figure out how to link to the podcast from this post; hopefully my blog skills will improve and I’ll be able to share things more directly.)

The podcasts I listen to definitely help to feed my #mind – one of the reasons I love Happier is that Gretchen talks about concepts from her books, small ways to make life happier that are thought-provoking.  Tee and I often end up re-hashing the podcast after we’ve both listened, talking about ideas we want to embrace, things we’re already putting in place, or (sometimes) concepts that don’t really resonate with us.  Definitely food for thought.  #mind  #happier
