The Statue of Liberty represents one of the great dreams of the United States.
Every time I look at that statue, I ask myself: What am I doing, in my own life, to live up to the highest ideals of my country?
It’s an important question to ask ourselves, every day. Click the link in my profile to listen to this “A Little Happier” episode of #happierpodcast#nyc

If a father in your life might enjoy a book for Father’s Day, might I suggest my short, unconventional biography, Forty Ways to Look at Winston Churchill? Judging from the emails I receive in the weeks following Father’s Day each year, I’ve concluded that many people give it as a Father’s Day gift.
Or if a father in your life is working on an important habit, consider my book Better Than Before, which explains the 21 strategies we can use to make or break our habits. It turns out that it’s not that hard to break a habit, when you do it in the way that’s right for you.
Fun fact: in book publishing, Father’s Day is a major event, because so many people give books as Father’s Day gifts. #fathersday#giftideas#bookstagram#gretchenrubun#churchhill#habits

Our #happierpodcast guests on today’s episode are Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings. They’re co-hosts and producers for the terrific podcast @thenodshow which @NewYorkerMag magazine called “a playful and serious podcast about blackness.” It’s an exploration of the many dimensions of black culture. A big part of why their show is so terrific is that they have such great chemistry because they know each other so well. We talk to Eric and Brittany about their reflections on what, for many people, is a potential happiness stumbling block – but also has the possibility to be a huge happiness triumph: working with a close friend. They've made it work: how? Click the link in my profile to listen. @ejeddings@bmluse#happierpodcast#thenod#workingwithfriends
I'm re-recording the audio for my book HAPPIER AT HOME.
In the first audiobook recording, it was read by a professional actor, but many listeners wrote to tell me that they prefer to hear the author’s voice. So I’m doing it!
In the second photo, note the pillow used to muffle “stomach noises.” The fact that they have the pillow on hand reassured me that I’m not the only one.
Last photo: the engineer showed me how my voice looks. #happierathome#audiobooks#happierpodcast
