Journaling a sentence a day can make you happier

In her latest podcast on happiness, she suggests people write one sentence a day think of it as a personal tweet or CliffNotes encompassing the last 24 hours. For those of you that think one sentence a day may be too little to help manage a day full of things, Rubin claims it's just enough. Take it from her she has been keeping a one-sentence journal for over a decade.
