Outer Order Inner Calm

declutter and organize to make more room for happiness

By Gretchen Rubin

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A guide to decluttering from the international bestselling author and happiness guru Gretchen Rubin

Bestselling author and happiness expert Gretchen Rubin explores one of her key secrets to happiness: that, for most of us, outer order leads to inner calm. A messy desk or a cluttered cupboard might seem like a trivial matter, yet Rubin has found that by simply organising our stuff, we free up space for what we truly value (in our lives and in our homes).

Do I need it? Do I love it? Do I use it?

This new, beautifully packaged volume, with over 150 concrete ideas, approaches the problem of how to best organise our possessions with Gretchen Rubin's characteristic clarity and humour, explaining how best to:
"Make Choices", "Create Order", "Know Yourself - and Others", "Cultivate Helpful Habits" and, of course, "Add Beauty"

Leading on from both Happiness at Home and The Four Tendencies the book is filled with practical insights, clear strategies and sometimes surprising tips, this book will help readers find what works best for them to regain control, and lead happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative lives.

'If you want to change anything in your life, you need Gretchen Rubin' Viv Groskop, journalist and Rebel

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER'I love Gretchen Rubin - she helps me understand both myself and the people around me' Cathy Rentzenbrink, 'Obliger' and author of The Last Act of Love'If you want to change anything in your life you need Gretchen Rubin.' Viv Groskop 'Rebel'OBLIGER? REBEL? QUESTIONER? UPHOLDER? Which one are you? Everyone falls into 1 of 4 personality types and knowing yours could make you happier and more successful. During her investigation to understand human nature, explored most recently in her bestselling Better Than Before, Gretchen Rubin realised that by asking the seemingly dry question 'How do I respond to expectations?' we gain life changing self-knowledge.She discovered that based on their answer, people fit into Four Tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behaviour, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.More than 800,000 people have taken her online quiz, and managers, doctors, teachers, spouses, and parents already use the framework to help people make significant, lasting change. The Four Tendencies hold practical answers if you've ever thought...- People can rely on me, but I can't rely on myself- How can I help someone to follow good advice?- People say I ask too many questions- How do I work with someone who refuses to do what I ask - or who keeps telling me what to do?With sharp insight, compelling research, and hilarious examples, The Four Tendencies will help you get happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.

Better Than Before

Gretchen Rubin
Authors:
Gretchen Rubin

'A LOT OF US WOULD LIKE A RUBIN IN OUR LIVES' The Times Magazine - 'JUST READ THIS BOOK... IT'S EXCELLENT' Viv Groskop - 'FASCINATING, PERSUASIVE' Guardian Many experts suggest one-size-fits-all solutions for habit change, but as we all know from experience, there's no single magic answer. Better Than Before shows us how to understand habits and to change them for good, and gives us the thrill of recognition and relief, because at last, we'll have the vocabulary and framework to change our habits successfully. Solutions exist!Along the way, Rubin uses herself as a guinea pig, tests her theories on family and friends, and answers some of the 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?- I want to help someone else make a change. But how?- Why do practically all dieters gain the weight back - plus more?- How quickly can I change a habit?- Why can I make time for everyone else, but can't make time for myself?Whether you want to get more sleep, finish a project, maintain a healthy weight, or stop checking devices, habits make it possible. With Rubin's signature mix of rigorous research and easy humour, Better Than Before will make us eager to start work on our own habits - even before we've finished the book.

Happier at Home

Gretchen Rubin
Authors:
Gretchen Rubin

In The Happiness Project, she worked out general theories of happiness. Here she goes deeper on factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family's treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster.And what does she want from her home? A place that calms her, and energises her. A place that, by making her feel safe, will free her to take risks. Also, while Rubin wants to be happier at home, she wants to appreciate how much happiness is there already.So, starting in September (the new January), Rubin dedicates a school year - September through May - to making her home a place of greater simplicity, comfort and love. Each month, Rubin tackles a different theme as she experiments with concrete, manageable resolutions - and this time, she coaxes her family to try some resolutions, as well. With her signature blend of memoir, science, philosophy and experimentation, Rubin's passion for her subject jumps off the page, and reading just a few chapters of this book will inspire readers to find more happiness in their own lives.
