WATCH: Do Low Expectations Make You Happier? From Gretchen Rubin

Posted: Updated:

Are you happier if you have low expectations or does having higher expectations bring more happiness? Gretchen Rubin, author of "The Happiness Project" and "Happier at Home" sat down with me and we talked about how your happiness is related to the expectations you have of other people.

According to Gretchen, when you have lower expectations, chances are you're easily satisfied. But, on the other hand, when you have higher expectations, you aim higher and strive for bigger goals, and over time, that can lead to a happier life.

You can pre-order Gretchen's latest book, "Happier At Home" here.
