Episode 77: Tune In to the 5 Senses for a Happier Life with Gretchen Rubin

One path to a happier life is experiencing it with all of our senses. In this episode, Gretchen Rubin explains how tuning in to sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing can help us get us out of our heads and into the world.

Gretchen Rubin is one of today’s most influential and thought-provoking observers of happiness and human nature. She’s an unusual combination: a literary writer who explores how we can put transcendent ideas into practice. She’s the author of five New York Times bestselling books, including the blockbuster #1 New York Times and international bestseller The Happiness Project. Her latest book is Life in the Five Senses. On her top-ranking weekly podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, she discusses good habits and happiness with her sister Elizabeth Craft. Her award-winning Happier app helps people customize and use habit-tracking tools.
