It’s time for the next installment of “Happier with Gretchen Rubin.” Update: In episode 64, we introduced the segment of the “Happiness Hack.” Some listeners sent us their favorite hacks. Keep sending them in! We love reading them. Try This at Home: Have room of your own. Maybe not an entire room, but some room. Happiness Stumbling Block: The incomplete upgrade. Have you experienced this? Listener Question: Missy “I’m moving in with my boyfriend. I don’t have a TV, but my boyfriend has one. How do I avoid spending too much time on the couch?” Gretchen’sDemerit: I didn’t warn my daughter that once her cellphone screen cracked, she should go ahead and get it fixed, even though the phone was still working.
