The Science of Happiness
Play • 43 min

Tal Ben-Shahar created the most popular course in Harvard’s history, studying the science of happiness. He guides us through the universal pillars of happiness from the importance of learning and curiosity to our relationships, meaning and purpose, as well as the universal detractors from the downfall of technology to the gap in our expectations, the modern rat race and the misunderstanding of the connection between, wealth, success and happiness.

Feel-Good Habits | Nadine Baggott
Nadine Baggott joins me on the podcast to share her feel-good habits, the strategies she uses and recommends to make sure every day is a good day. As you’d expect from Nadine, these habits are practical, honest and there is absolutely no sugar-coating whatsoever. To quote one of Nadine’s favourite films, ‘buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy night’.  During our conversation @nadinebaggott reveals: * The benefits of having pets and the rewards the act of loving and caring for them gives. * The dangers of externalising your power. * How to make lists, but lists with real purpose that create action. * Why it’s important to find pleasure in small things. * The dangers of being around miserable and/or narcissistic people and why @drramani youtube is a good source for sussing that out. * Why getting outside is vital for physical, mental, and emotional health. * How music can play a vital role in setting your mood and making you feel motivated. * Why @beyonce Lemonade played a crucial role in helping Nadine navigate a challenging time in her own life. * Why it’s so important to have hope and something to look forward to. * The friends she has surrounded herself with and what they all have in common and why they are such a positive network of trusted connections, and much more...
