The antidote to overscheduling and feeling like your days aren’t your own, Happier Hour reframes your time around life’s happiest moments to build days that aren’t just full — but fulfilling.

Our most precious resource isn’t money. It’s time. We are allotted just twenty-four hours a day, and we live in a culture that keeps us feeling “time poor” — like we never have enough. Since we can’t add more hours to the day, how can we experience our lives as richer? Is it possible to spend our days so they aren’t just full, but are fulfilling?

Based on her wildly popular MBA class at UCLA, Professor Cassie Holmes demonstrates how to immediately improve our lives by changing how we perceive and invest our time. Happier Hour provides empirically based insights and easy-to-implement tools that will allow you to:

- Optimally spend your hours and feel confident in those choices
- Sidestep distractions
- Create and savor moments of joy
- Design your schedule with purpose
- Look back on your years without regrets

Enlivened by Holmes’s upbeat narrative and groundbreaking research, Happier Hour teaches you how small changes can have an enormous impact, helping you feel less overwhelmed, more present, and more satisfied with your life overall. It all starts by transforming just one hour into a happier hour.

Cassie Holmes is a professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, where she is an award-winning teacher and researcher. Holmes’s work on the intersection of time and happiness has been widely published in lead academic journals and featured in such outlets as NPR, The EconomistThe New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalThe AtlanticThe Washington Post, and more. Happier Hour is her first book.
