    The 3 Pillars of a Good Life: Happiness, Meaning, and Psychological Richness

    The 3 Pillars of a Good Life: Happiness, Meaning, and Psychological Richness

    Forget always chasing happiness or finding grand meaning. There's a secret ingredient to a truly good life – psychological richness. Explore what it is, why it matters, and how to live a life overflowing with growth, perspective, and even a bit of gritty adventure.
    What's in this episode?Beyond the Basics: We'll unpack the distinct differences between a happy, meaningful, and psychologically rich life. (Hint: You can have them all!)Are You Psychologically Rich?: We'll discuss the surprising traits and tell-tale signs of people who crave and live a psychologically rich life. Do you resonate?The Restless Spirit: If a sense of restlessness haunts you, or you crave novelty, this episode is for you. We'll discuss why that feeling might be guiding you toward something extraordinary.Intensity = Growth?: Discover why a psychologically rich life might involve more intense emotions – both the dazzling highs and the challenging lows – and how that fuels transformation.The Desire for Change: Learn why those chasing psychological richness are often driven to shake up systems and challenge the way things are.
    Quotes to Consider: "I felt really seen by an academic paper... This term psychologically rich just describes what I chase." – Madeline"Psychological richness and the desire to grow and be curious and be open... just gave me that language to be like, yeah, I don't always prioritize the happy life because there's something that matters more to me." – Madeline"Perhaps true psychological richness isn't found in harmony or a balance, but in the raw intensity of the experience..." – Cynthia"It all makes sense! This is why I ran away from teaching! And, like, why I just basically should have bumper stickers all over my car and say, I hate systems!" - Maggie"...people whose lives are psychologically rich tend to seek out challenges and value learning and are less interested in maintaining the status quo." – Quote from the paper: A Psychologically Rich Life: Beyond Happiness and Meaning, Oishi, S., & Westgate, E. C. (2021, August 12)
    Did this episode hit a little close to home?Feeling a bit...meh? Even with the picture-perfect life, you crave more depth, challenge, and the thrill of becoming someone new? That's your inner achiever calling for a richer experience.
    At Knomii, we ditch the generic goals and help you design a life that truly lights you up.

Wise women!

This is a really great podcast between Cynthia and Madeline. They share their experience with enthusiasm and clearly want their listeners to grow themselves and “ live their best life”. They are both good at motivating and easy to listen to.

I found the content really helpful. I was particularly interested in what what my drivers and traits are and took the tests they put in as links. A great idea to be aware of this for my daily activities!

I love how these two are open and honest with each other too. It’s going to be a great mother and daughter podcast to follow and I will enjoy getting hints and tips from these two wise women!
