What does it mean to live a New Happy life — and what can you do, right now, to create yours? In this podcast, we cover a different element of happiness each week, covering the latest science, inspiration, community stories, and actionable tips that you can put into practice today.
The Red Minutes
We’re awake for about 960 minutes a day. And, inevitably, some of them will be tricky, stressful, frustrating, or hard. But when we take a step back and look at the day as a whole, we can see that, on an average day, the hard minutes are rarer than we think — they just have a tendency to overpower the neutral and positive ones. In today's episode, you'll learn three science-backed tools to help shift your perspective and the way you face these challenging moments.
From Resistance to Acceptance
When we feel pain or go through a challenging experience, we tend to resist it. While we are attempting to protect ourselves, this strategy only ends up turning our pain into suffering. In today's episode, you'll learn about the science behind acceptance, why using it is so transformative, and learn some simple acceptance tools that can be used anytime, anywhere.
Imagine that your life is like a quilt, slowly woven together over time with your experiences, decisions, and learnings. This analogy can help us to answer three key questions that often arise in the pursuit of happiness. Who am I? How will I get through this tough moment? What is my purpose? In today's episode, you'll learn how conceptualizing your life as a quilt can help you to tap into greater wisdom and joy.
All of us are trying to be better in our daily lives. But it can be challenging when we've established default reactions to specific triggers, ones that are not aligned with who we want to be. In today's episode, learn how to interrupt yourself, why doing so helps you to cultivate your best self, and the power it can have to make an impact upon the world.
A soul friend is someone who helps you to become the greatest version of yourself. We all deserve a friend like this. In today's episode, hear the story of a famous pair of soul friends, what we can learn from them about true friendship, the science of friendship, and how to find soul friends of your own.
It takes courage to live a New Happy life: to be yourself, and to share your gifts with the world. In today's episode, learn the science and practice of courage, including a deep dive into the five types that, when practiced, will help you to find greater happiness.
Amazing, love thus podcast, Steph Harrison, and The New Happy!!!
Love this podcast and everything about The New Happy!! I hired Stephanie to speak to a group of female entrepreneurs that I’m currently working with and everything she presented was a a breath of fresh air. In a world focused on money, fame, and status, we need Steph’s and The New Happy’s message more than ever before. This podcast is a great intro into her work and into a very necessary question that humanity needs right now; how do we focus less on ourselves, and more on a more equal, just, and brighter future.
Both inspiring and practical. Love that it is all science based. Listening in the mornings sets me up for a great day.
Add this to what brings me joy
