Life in five senses

17.99

Gretchen Rubin has studied happiness and human nature for more than a decade, but as she became increasingly busy and stuck in her head, she didn’t notice the sensations of life quietly fading. In this journey of self-experimentation, she lifts herself from a state of foggy preoccupation into a rediscovered world by exploring the mysteries and joys of the five senses. Drawing on cutting-edge science, philosophy, literature and her own efforts to practice what she learns, Rubin investigates the profound power of tuning in to the physical world. From the simple pleasures of appreciating ketchup and curating a playlist of her favourite songs, to more adventurous daily rituals, excursions and a trip to Flavour University. In the rush of daily life, she finds that our five senses offer us a path to a happier, more mindful life.

Description

‘A charming journey through the science and experience of fully engaging your senses of smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound’ – Adam Grant, author of Think Again

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project turns to the five senses.

For more than a decade, Gretchen Rubin had been studying happiness and human nature. Despite all she’d learned, she began to realize that something was missing: she was spending so much time stuck in her head that she wasn’t noticing the world around her.

In this journey of self-experimentation, Rubin explores the mysteries and joys of embracing the senses as a path to a happier, more mindful life: from the simple pleasures of appreciating ketchup and adding favourite songs to a playlist, to practicing daily rituals and attending Flavor University, she discovers the power of tuning in.

Life in Five Senses is filled with profound insights and practical suggestions about how to heighten our senses and live fuller, richer lives – and, ultimately, how to move through the world with more vitality and love.

‘An inspiring and practical guide to living in the moment’ – Susan Cain, author of Quiet
