Gretchen Rubin on Being Happier: The Self Awareness to Live Better & Understand More

As we round on the New Year, ask yourself: How do you respond to expectations? Do you complete your resolutions? Do you execute on what others ask of you? There are four types of tendencies and knowing more about yourself will lead to healthier habits, better relationships, and more results. Gretchen Rubin is a bestselling author, human nature expert, and award winning podcaster, who has spent her career discovering what makes us happy. She joins Heather today to discuss her insights on building productive habits that will make your life better and other’s lives better too.
