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.

Where Have I Been

I’m a recent PhD graduate, and for sometime people in my social network stated I should try and listen to some relative podcast. I am SO HAPPPPPPPY I found Kristen - where have I been.

Can you binge listen to podcast (lol).

Fresh voice in a crowded room.

I have been on the hunt for a positive mind podcast and stumbled across this one. What kept me tuning in? Her honesty, how upfront she is about her knowledge and lack of knowledge of things and lastly, I can hear the fun and enthusiasm she has for this topic. She’s not here just to make money or become famous. She actually wants to engage with her audience even if it’s 1 person listening. Give it a try. I’m sure you’ll like it.
