About The Happiness Project

In 2009, Gretchen Rubin’s breakout book, The Happiness Project, became a New York Times #1 bestseller and revolutionized the way people approach personal development. Over the last decade, she has taken her approach to creating a happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative life off those pages and into the daily lives of her readers and listeners through her books, blog, podcast, online courses, and weekly newsletter.

Here, you’ll find all the practical tools, resources, and insights you need to start your own Happiness Project. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution—your Happiness Project is unique to you, based on your own nature, interests, values, and experiences. This collection is your personal happiness toolkit, where you can discover what tools work for you so that you can build the life you want, starting today.

As Gretchen Rubin continues to research, experiment, and share her observations and ideas about happiness and good habits, The Happiness Project will continue to grow.
