Episode 90: How the Human Mind Finds Happiness (And How It Doesn't)
1 hr 6 min

We think we know what will make us happy. That's why we do things like focus on the positive, give ourselves as much choice as possible, and focus our energies on becoming like those people who have the lives we want. And most of the time, we're totally wrong. This week, we are breaking down common misconceptions about what will make us happy. Based on the online course called "The Science of Well-Being" and the accompanying podcast "The Happiness Lab" from Yale professor Dr. Laurie Santos, we are diving into the ways that humans find happiness and why it isn't what you think. Find out why positive thinking can lead to negative outcomes, why we don't actually want as many choices as we think we do, and much more.
