The science of the good life, huh? Sorry this is not about booze, sex and rock n'roll (or whatever is en vogue right now). In fact we talk about a lot of things that tree huggers would love: appreciation of beauty, gratitude, positive emotions, relationships and well, love. However we, that is positive psychologists and positive psychology practitioners buried ourselves in books, set out to experiment and then write it all up in a writing style that is about as exciting to read as watching an avocado turn brown. And that's the problem: if you are not an academic you probably want a little bit more excitement, than pages and pages of densely written journals can provide. Even if you are an academic, who has time to read all the interesting stuff out there anyways? So in an effort to save your eyes taking on a comically rectangular shape the positive psychology podcast brings the science of the good life to your earbuds. It's not all treehugger style though; sometimes we might get quite serious, for example when exploring things like post-traumatic growth or positive parenting. Subscribe if you want to benefit from the scientific insights into happiness and meaning while you are on the go. Let me know where you are while you are listening to this. If you like it review it, because that's the only way other people can find it too.

Wonderful

I am probably quite late to this party but the material does not date. Kristen brings fascinating topics to life with simplicity and warmth. I hope all those I have told about this series recently enjoy it too.

Wonderful - fascinating and useful

I started listening to find out more about positive psychology. In no time I found myself binge listening to all the episodes from the start. I looked forward to your company on my daily commute. Now I am going back to some episode to try some techniques . Thank you so much for all the time you put in this, it is fascinating and has given me so many practical tips to feel good and make life more enjoyable. You are a star, thanks again.
