Anyone who knows me well knows that I have an abiding love for Gretchen Rubin. I’ve read all of her books, listen to her podcast every week, and I even attended a book luncheon last year where I got to meet her in person.
For the past six weeks, since we’ve all been hunkered down at home (and those of us who are lucky enough to be safe and healthy are just trying to stay sane) Gretchen and her sister Elizabeth have been hosting “Coping with COVID-19 Conversations” on Instagram Live every weekday (1pm PT/4pm ET). It’s usually happening about the time my husband and I are sitting down to lunch, so we prop my phone up on the napkin holder on our dining table and enjoy a lunchtime chat with Gretchen and Elizabeth!
The conversations vary depending on the day, but it usually has to do with topics that Gretchen is known for: improving habits, happiness hacks, creating outer order, and her four tendencies framework. Being able to look forward to these conversations has really helped my mood and also helped me keep a sense of routine in these strange times.
Since these daily chats have been going on for so long (30 and counting!) some repeat themes and buzzwords have developed! So my husband and I like to play a little game of verbal bingo as we look out for our favorite sayings and repeats. But today, we wondered why we had been keeping this nerdy fun to ourselves! Why not make something to share my love of Gretchen Rubin with the world? So, ladies and gentlemen, here it is:
A Very Un-Official “Happier with Gretchen Rubin”
“Coping with COVID-19”
To play along, just download my bingo card PDF (there are 5 cards to choose from), print them out, and tune in to @gretchinrubin on Instagram Live at 1pm PT/4pm ET every weekday (with any exceptions or rescheduling noted here).
If you already love Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft, I hope this bingo increases your existing enjoyment. And if Gretchen and Elizabeth are new to you, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR LIFE TUNE IN IMMEDIATELY! I hope you love it as much as I do, and it brings you some joy during these challenging times.
