For my free trial, I chose the book Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. This was an inspiring book for getting the new year off to a great start. The book focuses on happiness habits for possessions, time, family, neighborhood, and body. The Audible version is read by Käthe Mazur, who has a pleasant voice that is very easy to listen to and understand. Audible gives the option of listening at various speeds, and I sped up to 1.5x which worked well for me. After listening to Happier at Home, I am so motivated to make lasting change for the new year!!
