    A Slight Change of Plans

    A Slight Change of Plans

    Dr Maya Shankar studies how our minds work and how we change. She joins Dr Laurie Santos to discuss how her own life plans were derailed at 15 and the journey that finally brought her to start a new podcast, A Slight Change of Plans.
    The show brings you intimate conversations about how people navigate changes of all kinds and use that change to ultimately grow. Maya uncovers little-known personal stories and reflections from familiar names, like Hillary Clinton, Tiffany Haddish and Kacey Musgraves.
    In this preview you'll hear part of an interview with Darryl Davis, a Black jazz musician who convinced hundreds of KKK members to leave the Klan.

    Hidden Brain: Laurie Talks Monkeys and Bad Money Decisions.

    Hidden Brain: Laurie Talks Monkeys and Bad Money Decisions.

    Hidden Brain is a weekly podcast hosted by Shankar Vedantam. It's a show about science and human behaviour we think you'll enjoy. Dr Laurie Santos was a guest on the show - so we thought you'd appreciate a chance to hear her tell Shankar all about her research work on monkeys and what they tells us about how our own biases surrounding financial decisions developed.

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Lao Tzu

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Lao Tzu

    The challenges of life often cause us to work frantically to overcome our difficulties - but the Chinese thinker Lao Tzu recommended that instead we should emulate the slow, steady, yet powerful flow of a river.
    Solala Towler has studied and taught the principles of Daoism for more than 30 years - and explains how we can implement them into our daily lives. Things like retaining our childlike wonder, being content to go with the flow, and appreciating moderation in all things so that we don't burn ourselves out.

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Confucius

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Confucius

    The Covid pandemic has robbed us of many rituals and ceremonies we took for granted - from simple handshakes to elaborate graduation ceremonies. Their loss is important - rituals contribute to our happiness in so many ways. Something the ancient Chinese teacher Confucius contemplated deeply.
    Harvard professor Peter Bol (who teaches ChinaX at edx.org) explains why Confucius thought that ritual behaviours can bring us and our communities peace and joy - but why we need to create traditions and rules and customs that serve others, not just ourselves.

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Forgiveness

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: Forgiveness

    Miroslav Volf teaches at Yale Divinity School - and is celebrated for his work on reconciliation and forgiveness. But book learning alone does not explain this focus.
    Miroslav’s brother was killed in a childhood accident, and the Volf family’s journey through misery and hatred finally ended in a powerful act of forgiveness inspired by Christian teachings. He tells Dr Laurie Santos how seeking to "unglue" the deed from the doer is a gift we can give others and ourselves.

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: The Day of Rest

    Happiness Lessons of The Ancients: The Day of Rest

    Sarah Hurwitz worked 24/7 at Harvard, and barely took time off as she built a career in DC writing speeches for first Hillary Clinton and then Michelle Obama. Sarah would even take her cell phone into the shower.
    But as she explored the teachings of Judaism, she began to appreciate the vital importance of the commandment to observe a day of rest, and found that sometimes doing less made her happier.
    Sarah is author of Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There).

My favorite podcast

目前最喜歡的podcast是它,強力推薦給大家。剛聽的一集講到,奧運銅牌得主平均的快樂程度大約是7分,銀牌得主平均卻不到5分,主因是銅牌得主不自覺地把排名更後面的選手當成參考點,銀牌得主卻不自覺把金牌得主當成參考點。所以不要被潛意識誤選的極端參考點給害了,而是要有意識地選擇讓自己更快樂的參考點,或是減少與人比較的心態。
