‘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 studied happiness and human nature, but spending so much time stuck in her head, parts of the physical world had begun to slip away, unnoticed.

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. Drawing on cutting-edge science, philosophy, literature and her own efforts to practice what she learns, she investigates the power of tuning in: from the simple pleasures of appreciating ketchup and adding favourite songs to a playlist, to practicing daily rituals and attending Flavour University. In the rush of daily life, Rubin finds, our senses offer us an immediate, sustainable way to cheer up, calm down and engage the world around us.

Life in Five Senses is a 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.

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