Gretchen Rubin felt nostalgic when the last episode of The Office was announced, but the writer of The Happiness Project knew better than to mope. She primed her family to enjoy the final episode together through these four stages.
My daughters and I are huge fans of the TV show, The Office (the American version). We have the DVDs, we’ve watched every episode several times, and they get funnier each time.
Now, admittedly, you may question the wisdom of allowing an eight-year-old to watch the show. But I always watch with her, and I skip through the inappropriate parts.
One thing that my happiness project has taught me is that my own frame of mind can significantly boost (or diminish) the amount of happiness I get from something.
