  2. Podcast 46: Don’t Get Organized, Dealing with Sentimental Items, Dealing with Rewards and Treats–and We Hit Five Million! | Gretchen Rubin

    It’s time for the next installment of  “Happier with Gretchen Rubin.”

    Update: Elizabeth reports on reader advice about how she can make an appointment to get her hair cut.

    Try This at Home: Don’t get organized. If you get rid of that stuff, you don’t have to organize it!

    Happiness Stumbling Block: It’s tough to let go of sentimental items, but they can become overwhelming.

    I mention my post “What do you do with holiday cards? Keep, Toss, Store…” Fascinating answers.

    Listener Question: “How do you distinguish between rewards and treats, and how do you decide when you should get one?”

    Gretchen’s Demerit: Barnaby had an operation, and I didn’t react in a calm way. Here he is in his cone, or “Elizabethan collar” as the vet called it, which he did not enjoy. Now he’s all healed and free!

    Eleanor’s Gold Star: Elizabeth gives a gold star to the podcast Another Round. Note: they do use strong language, if that’s an issue.

    Newsflash! We hit five million downloads! While we were recording. Thank you, listeners, and thanks for recommending it to other people!

    Remember, if you live in the Bay area:  Elizabeth and I are doing our first live recording of the podcast! January 21, Brava Theater, we hope to see you. Info and tickets here.  We’ll have two outstanding guests, Nir Eyal and Jake Knapp. Plus Elizabeth and I have planned special little treats, and you also get a copy of Better Than Before with your ticket.
