Happier at Home

Gretchen Rubin

Overview

They say home is where the heart is, but our attachment to it and happiness greatly depend on our ability to care for and maintain our living environment.

When writer Gretchen Rubin awoke to the realization that she felt homesick in her own kitchen, she decided she needed to invest in her space. Rubin went on to dedicate nine months to the process of improving her home life, focusing both on organizing and decorating her house, and strengthening her family relationships.

For Rubin, time, possessions, parenthood, marriage, and family are keys to a happy home — and thus, to a happy life. Through implementing small changes daily, you'll take back control of your personal life and make your house a real home.

"I am living my real life, this is it. Now is now, and if I waited to be happier, waited to have fun, waited to do the things I know I ought to do, I might never get the chance."
