In this extra-special, kid-friendly edition of The Happiness Question, we interview Loretta Breuning, PhD. Her interview is even easier to understand for kids than many of our episodes, making it a great introductory episode for them or for your younger siblings, while still making it fun and interesting for those of all ages! Dr. Breuning discusses how the brain (and happiness) actually works, from your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Endorphin, Oxytocin, and Serotonin, to what makes our brains different than any other species. You'll learn how to rewire YOUR brain in order to be happier more often, and help recognize thought patterns that may be making you depressed. By simply changing how we see the world, can we REALLY be happier? Listen to this week's episode to find out!
