Gretchen Rubin of ‘Happier at Home’ Offers Sweet, Free Tips

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I can go on and on about how much I adore and admire Gretchen Rubin, author of the bestsellers Happier at Home and The Happiness ProjectIn fact, I’ve already done just that. But she did something so cool this week, that I just have to share it with you.

She started the Happier at Home 21-Day Relationship ChallengeMy husband and I have been happily married for eight years, but it’s always good to change things up. Rubin’s Challenge does the trick, and it’s free. Everyday, she emails a warm and loving tip. I’m implementing her advice, and my husband is already smiling more. Sign up now! There are 16 juicy days left.

To get you caught up, here are her tips from this week.

Day 1: Kiss in the Morning, Kiss at Night
Day 2: Give Gold Stars (men need praise and reassurance)
Day 3: Make the Positive Argument (focus on his strengths when his weaknesses become annoying)
Day 4: Under-React to a Problem
Day 5: Give Warm Greetings and Farewells

The advice comes directly from Happier at Home, which I read last year. I love these daily reminders of easy-to-forget niceties. Thank you, Gretchen. My husband and I are having a warm and fuzzy week because of you.

She was recently featured on The Today Show. Check her out below:
