Happier at Home Challenge

I am currently reading Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project book. 
I figured it was the perfect book to read at the start of the new year. Once I finish the book, I'll definitely share my thoughts on it with you.

In the meantime, while visiting her site, I found a 21 day challenge based on her new book, Happier At Home. In order to participate in the relationship "challenge," you just go to this site and enter your email address! The daily emails with small, easy tips to being a better partner started on the 14th, but it's not too late to sign up!

Here are some examples of the daily challenges:

Day 1: By acting more loving, we make ourselves feel more loving, and at the same time, make our sweethearts feel more loved. Resolve to “Kiss in the morning, kiss at night”—or find a way to establish your own habit of affection.

Day 4: Today’s resolution suggests that you “Under-react to a problem.”  Not to ignore a problem, or minimize it, but just under-react to it. For a person like me, who tends flare up quickly, this is very helpful—though challenging.

It's been fun getting the daily emails with little tips on things to be mindful of regarding my relationships. It never hurts to be more cognisant of being patient and more loving!

Please let me know if you decide to join in on the challenge!

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life" - John Lennon
