Caitlin Schiller talks to Gretchen Rubin, NYT bestselling author of Better Than Before, The Happiness Project, and Happier at Home. Her books have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, in over thirty languages.

Rubin speaks about her approach to happiness, habits, and self-acceptance. The main thing you should listen for is how to apply the ancient idea of “know thyself” to your fast-paced 21st-century life.

In the second segment, Ben Schuman-Stoler joins Caitlin for a deep but pithy dive into some of the ideas and books Gretchen mentions in the interview. By the end of the episode, you’ll understand Gretchen’s #1 best-selling approach to happiness, plus what you can do to apply it to your own life.
