BETTER THAN BEFORE Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives

by | Read by Gretchen Rubin

Personal Growth • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

The likable Gretchen Rubin, who wrote THE HAPPINESS PROJECT, makes personal observations about herself as she delivers this immensely helpful audio guide to improving our lives through building good habits. These personal references and her conversational phrasing make her audiobook sound lighthearted and inviting--full of insights that sound familiar and advice that sounds less like what you should do and more like what you want to do. Four key strategies she offers are monitoring, paying attention to foundations (sleeping, moving, eating right, and scheduling), committing to beginnings, and arranging for accountability. With her focus on taking first steps and creating early successes, this is a refreshing take on how to change stubborn patterns that limit what we can enjoy about our lives.
