ABOUT LIFE IN FIVE SENSES:  Gretchen Rubin, the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Happiness Project, discovers a surprising path to a life of more energy, creativity, luck, and love by tuning in to the five senses.

“An inspiring and practical guide to living in the moment.” ~ Susan Cain, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Bittersweet and Quiet.  For more than a decade, Gretchen Rubin had been studying happiness and human nature.  Then, one day, a visit to her eye doctor made her realize that she’d been overlooking a key element of happiness: her 5 senses.  She’d spent so much time stuck in her head that she’d allowed the vital sensations of life to slip away, unnoticed.  This epiphany lifted her from a state of foggy preoccupation into a world rediscovered by seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching.

In this journey of self-experimentation, Gretchen explores the mysteries and joys of the five senses as a path to a happier, more mindful life.  Drawing on cutting-edge science, philosophy, literature, and her own efforts to practice what she learns, she investigates the profound power of tuning in to the physical world.

From the simple pleasures of appreciating the magic of ketchup and adding favorite songs to a playlist, to more adventurous efforts like creating a daily ritual of visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art and attending Flavor University, Gretchen show us how to experience each day with depth, delight, and connection. In the rush of daily life, she finds, our 5 senses offer us an immediate, sustainable way to cheer up, calm down, and engage the world around us, as well as a way to glimpse the soul and touch the transcendent.

Life in Five Senses is an absorbing, layered story of discovery filled with profound insights and practical suggestions about how to heighten our senses and use our powers of perception to live fuller, richer lives, and, ultimately, how to move through the world with more vitality and love.
