Why do we seek happiness? We’re happier when we’re happy, of course, and studies also reveal that happier people are healthier, live longer, and are more successful; happy people are more active in their communities, more interested in the problems of the world, and more likely to vote. We all want to be happy, but where do you start?
PBS special programming invites you to join New York Times-bestselling author, podcast host, and happiness guru Gretchen Rubin as she explains how small steps, taken consistently, can add up to greater contentment. This doesn’t just happen, however--you must recognize what type of person you are. By using Rubin’s “Four Tendencies” framework, you can take the first steps to make your life better. Rubin is joined by her sister and Happier with Gretchen Rubin podcast co-host Elizabeth Craft as she explains how knowing your personality type allows you successfully to tailor happiness-boosting habits specifically to your own personality. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life, and by creating good habits, you can make your life happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.
