“Habits are the invisible architecture of daily life….If we change our habits, we change our lives.”
So begins Gretchen Rubin’s latest book Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives. She has studied happiness and habits and sets out to show that developing good habits is a way to make our lives better. Throughout the book, she gives readers helpful tips on how to establish good habits, demonstrates the importance of tailoring habits to our individual personalities, and shares keys for making them stick. The author shares her own experiences, as well as those of family members and friends she has helped.
This was a fun read for me as I can totally identify with Gretchen’s fondness for good habits. Having habits in place – whether for eating, exercising, quiet time, spending time with our spouse and children – frees up our decision-making skills while insuring that the tasks that really matter to us, those things that enrich our lives, are actually getting done.
