Free Audiobook:Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin

Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: Gretchen Rubin   Narrator: Gretchen Rubin   Language: English    Category: Self Development  

The author of the blockbuster New York Times best sellers The Happiness Project and Happier at Home tackles the critical question: How do we change? Gretchen Rubin’s answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives. So if habits are a key to change, then what we really need to know is: How do we change our habits? Better Than Before answers that question. It presents a practical, concrete framework to allow listeners to understand their habits – and to change them for good. Infused with Rubin’s compelling voice, rigorous research, and easy humor, and packed with vivid stories of lives transformed, Better Than Before explains the (sometimes counterintuitive) core principles of habit formation. Along the way Rubin uses herself as guinea pig, tests her theories on family and friends, and answers listeners’ most pressing questions – oddly, questions that other writers and researchers tend to ignore: Why do I find it tough to create a habit for something I love to do? Sometimes I can change a habit overnight, and sometimes I can’t change a habit no matter how hard I try. Why? How quickly can I change a habit? What can I do to make sure I stick to a new habit? How can I help someone else change a habit? Why can I keep habits that benefit others but can’t make habits that are just for me? Whether listeners want to get more sleep, stop checking their devices, maintain a healthy weight, or finish an important project, habits make change possible. Listening to just a few chapters of Better Than Before will make listeners eager to start work on their own habits – even before they’ve finished the audiobook. Bonus feature: includes a full episode from the author’s podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin in which she discusses how to build happier habits into everyday life.
