Interview on The Happiness Project

Yesterday, I was interviewed by the wonderful Gretchen Rubin who writes the inspiring blog The Happiness Project. Gretchen spent a year auditioning every major “principle, tip, theory, and scientific study [she] could find, whether from Aristotle or St. Therese or Martin Seligman or Oprah” to see which ones worked, which ones didn’t, and how she could use them to help her be happy. She has a book coming out in late 2009 chronicling the year she test-drove all of the theories, and her blog also details these experiences. You may recognize Gretchen’s blog because she also is a member of the LifeRemix network and writes a column for Real Simple’s Simply Stated community in the Life section.

When Gretchen asked if I would sit for an interview, I dropped everything to do it. The topic of the interview isn’t directly related to getting rid of physical clutter, but it definitely touches on the bigger-picture idea of mental clutter that can prohibit a person from being happy.

    this sounds a lot like a book i finished reading not too long ago which is along the same lines. it was called helping me, help myself by beth lisck. she tried out a different self help guru for every month of a year. same concepts i guess, different approaches.

    I love it when you say: “I see happiness much like a candle. If someone comes and lights her candle off of yours, it doesn’t extinguish your candle’s flame. The two of you can sit and share in the glow together.”

    It’s just what someone I love needs to hear. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing particular point of view.
