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

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.
