How to be Smarter: Most of happiness is recognizing how good you have it in this moment, and giving yourself a reason to be hopeful for the next moment. If you spend most of each day focusing on being grateful for that day, and a bit of each day thinking about how to make the next day wonderful, happiness comes easier. How to be Prettier: My current favorite product is eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balms [which you can buy at almost any drugstore, usually up by the check-out counter]. The fun colors and scents in the bright little round container make it easy to remember to keep lips moisturized in colder temperatures.

How to be (less) Awkward: One of my favorite questions to ask to get to know someone better is, "What keeps you up at night?"
