This interview has been a long time coming (thanks, technology!) but I can tell you it was absolutely worth the wait.
In this ridiculously enlightening episode, I chat with Gretchen Rubin, New York Times best-selling author of Better Than Before, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home.
This show starts out as any other – a regular conversation – in this instance, about happiness and habits and the changes Gretchen is most proud of in her own life. But somewhere around the middle it shifts into something different… A personalised habits counselling session, as Gretchen digs into why I’m so inclined to take on too many projects and burn out (in a big way).
We also discuss the Four Tendencies of Habits, and why that means I’m less likely to do a morning yoga class by myself, but far more likely to turn up if Ben joins me.
This is such a fun conversation with plenty of insight into why we do and don’t find making changes easy. And for anyone looking to make a shift towards a slower, simpler life, there are plenty of tips and tricks from Gretchen to help you make those changes as seamlessly as possible.
Also, in light of the #slowhomeexperiment, Gretchen has some killer insight into why some changes stick while others fall by the way, so if you’re giving up sugar along with Ben and I this February, you’ll definitely want to tune in.
