    MWM111 - How to be Happy with Stephanie Harrison

    In this episode, I’m speaking to Stephanie Harrison

    Stephanie is an expert in the science of happiness and the creator of the New Happy philosophy. She has a master’s degree in positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania,

    Her company, The New Happy, has revolutionized the way that people understand and pursue happiness using Their artwork, newsletter, videos, podcast, and resources which reach millions of people around the world every month.

    Society has conditioned us to pursue the wrong things for happiness, such as success, material possessions, and external validation.

    True happiness comes from intrinsic motivation and being true to oneself.

    Capitalism, individualism, and dominance influence our beliefs about happiness and lead us astray.

    The pursuit of extrinsic goals often leaves us feeling empty, while finding intrinsic joy in our pursuits brings fulfillment.

    We are enough and deserving of happiness just as we are. Recognize your worthiness and separate it from external achievements.

    Ask for help and embrace the power of connection.

    Be mindful of the impact of social media on happiness and prioritize in-person connection.

    Start the journey to new happy by understanding your authentic self and taking small steps towards pursuing passions and serving others.

Wisdom delivered in a smooth British accent

Started following Jamie over the past 6 months on insta, where he drops nuggets of wisdom like Rafiki. That led me to his podcast - listened to 2 episodes on my morning walks and I’m already hooked (leveled up and swapped out my daily news podcast). Great listen, wish I could give an extra star for his British accent, which makes it all the more pleasurable to listen to.
