    Little Happier: Remember the Dog that Doesn’t Bark.

    Little Happier: Remember the Dog that Doesn’t Bark.

    In a famous short story, detective Sherlock Holmes points to “the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime.” In my own life, I invoke his observation about the dog to remind me to be grateful for the things in my life that don’t happen.

Bite sized wisdom!

I always take away something useful from listening to Happier whether it’s something as simple as taking something with you to clear away when you go from one room to another, or keeping longer term resolutions.

Wonderful - can't wait for more

The wise and wonderful Gretchen Rubin now has a smart and fun podcast with her sister Elizabeth Craft. Lots of helpful strategies to live happier and better every day, bit-sized into a fun and action packed podcast. Hearing them speak reminds me of the many conversations I have with my own sister :-) All in all - a wonderful podcast.
