“Do I love it? Do I use it? Do I need it?”
– Gretchen Rubin
If you are among the ever-growing crowd of folks responding to the question, “How are you?” with a pained expression and the phrase “Crazy busy,” Gretchen Rubin is here to help. On the surface, this episode may sound like a conversation about organizational tips, but it goes much deeper. Gretchen has created a manifesto rooted in five pillars that serves as the modern version of Henry David Thoreau’s classic, Walden, helping us curate our habitats to support our essential selves.
