This Forgotten Book Challenge is an old, hardcover book that I bought many years ago. I saw it on the bookshelf one day, and after the events of last year, I thought I would give it a try.

The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun
By: Gretchen Rubin
(Purchased over four years ago.)
Gretchen Rubin realizes that she is focuses more on the busy daily tasks, but not the important things in life. She decides to sit down and plan a new way of life for the following year. Her path to happiness begins on January 1st and focuses on different aspects each month. This book chronicles her journey throughout the entire year.
I recommend reading this book in small doses. Pick a topic that you want to learn about and read just that chapter. I tried to read it straight through, but it became tiresome and defeated the main purpose. The author leads a decent life beforehand, and is happy, but this journey focuses on how everyone can be happier, more appreciative and less stressed.
