Liza-Palmer-233x300Happiness interview: Liza Palmer.
Liza Palmer is a bestselling writer with a new novel, More Like Her. One element of the novel is our assumption that we understand the realities of other people's lives-but really, we often don't. The theme of happiness, and how to create a happy life, is a frequent theme in her novels, and I was curious to hear what she had to say about happiness in her own life.
Gretchen: What's a simple activity that consistently makes you happier?
Liza: I actually keep a running list on an old spa pamphlet in my desk drawer of concrete and specific things that make me happy. So often I over-think things that it helps to look at this list and realize, oh that's right-all is not lost: Roi des Earl Grey from Mariage Freres exists. Sometimes it's all we can do to turn our moods around and thinking we have to figure everything out can feel overwhelming. Sometimes it's just about calling a friend and taking a drive with a great playlist.LizaList
