Happiness isn’t solely our positive states, we learn from Science Director Dr.Emiliana Simon-Thomas. It’s feeling content within our whole human experience, which of course, includes emotions like grief and sadness.
What’s the most enduring way to cultivate it?
Her research continually leads to the same destination: Connection.
‘We often measure life satisfaction by asking: Have I been successful enough? When the real question is: Who am I in relationship to other people?’
We explore this question in our conversation; Examining it through the lens of meaning and belonging, compassion and forgiveness. The Science of Happiness course is free and an inspiring journey to embark on. Consider beginning with Dr.Simon-Thomas’ episode and taking the class with a loved one.
