141: How to Choose Joy (Yes, Even Today) with Gretchen Rubin

The Rachel Hollis Podcast - April 7, 2020 - 51:41

Gretchen Rubin is always such a pleasure to have on the podcast, and this week her wisdom felt like a gift from above. Gretchen and I connected over Skype to talk about Choosing Joy - which means finding nuggets of happiness even when it feels awkward, even when it makes you feel guilty, even when every fiber of your being just wants to hide under the covers until it's all over. You can be a responsible, caring citizen of the world AND still choose joy for yourself and your family during this hard season. Gretchen has the tools and strategies to do just that, and it's all in this week's episode.Make sure you're following Gretchen on instagram @gretchenrubin for all the things related to her bestselling books and her Four Tendencies quiz.
