LOCATION: Margaret Mitchell House As Gretchen Rubin conducted the project that became The Happiness Project, she realized that her home was the most crucial element influencing her happiness. In Happier at Home, Rubin builds on what she learned in The Happiness Project by concentrating on the factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, parenthood, body, and neighborhood. Rubin dedicated a school year – September through May - so that each month has a theme and finds her experimenting with concrete, manageable resolutions meant to boost her happiness. With her signature blend of memoir, research, and experimentation, Rubin’s passion jumps off the page and inspires readers to find more happiness in their own lives. Her message: you don’t have to get a new life in order to be happier. Happiness is right here, right now. Gretchen Rubin is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project—an account of the year she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. She lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
