Happiness often feels like an unattainable, non-tangible thing that’s out of reach for many of us. We’re stuck on the sidelines waiting for X to happen so we can feel the highest expression of humanity: happiness. 

This week’s guest Tal Ben-Shahar is a happiness expert who has drilled down the scientific roots of the emotion we all strive to feel. We break down the elements of happiness, the neural roadmap it takes to get there, and explore why cultivating genuine appreciation and gratitude for life requires accepting and celebrating the sadder parts as well. 

You will learn about...

  • SPIRE: the acronym of happiness
  • The habits to happiness
  • The three R’s of change
  • Resilience to cultivate happiness
  • Allowing children to learn to live with hardship
  • Leaders as servants
  • Creating boundaries with external forces
  • The Happiness Academy
