Gretchin Rubin’s Great Questions We Might All Ask Ourselves…?

Some Great Questions that The Happiness Project author, Gretchin Rubin used in a recent interview with Leah Odze Epstein:

“You Know What Detracts From Happiness? Rushing.”

These are really great questions that we might ask ourselves ~ and ask each other ~ to uncover some of the wisdom we each already carry.  And, perhaps too, to reveal some of the holes in our current understanding about what helps or hinders our own happiness.


”    What’s a simple activity that consistently makes you happier?

”    What’s something you know now about happiness that you didn’t know when you were 18 years old?

”    Is there anything you find yourself doing repeatedly that gets in the way of your happiness?

”    Is there a happiness mantra or motto that you’ve found very helpful?

”    Is there anything that you see people around you doing or saying that adds a lot to their happiness, or detracts a lot from their happiness?

”    Have you always felt about the same level of happiness, or have you been through a period when you felt exceptionally happy or unhappy – if so, why?

”    Is there some aspect of your life that makes you particularly happy?

”    Have you ever been surprised that something you expected would make you very happy, didn’t – or vice versa?
