How to Be Happy: Wear Running Shoes

I had the pleasure of meeting Gretchen Rubin in New York last week. She’s delightful, and writes a great blog on happiness.Runningshoe_2_3

Her post yesterday really hits home: running shoes are usually more comfortable than dress shoes, and comfortable feet can offer a serious happiness boost.

I hate dress shoes, but I wear them when I must. Last week I had a meeting which called for nice shoes. Apparently, people still dress up on the east coast. I wore brand new dress shoes and four hours later I was limping around Manhattan, the shoe having carved a round hole in the back of my ankle. Disaster.

A week and ten bloodied pairs of socks later, I’m still recovering.

Listen to Gretchen. Wear running shoes. They’re more comfortable.
