Most of us have gotten at least a little emotional at some point recently. It’s natural. But why do we have emotions and how much should we pay attention to them on any given day? Can we learn to skillfully choose which emotions to listen to and which ones to just let move on by?
In More Than A Feeling, the latest podcast from Ten Percent Happier, host Saleem Reshamwala goes on a real life quest to find the answers to these questions. He’ll experiment with neuroscientists, dive into stories with historians and philosophers, and document how musicians, therapists, hairdressers and airplane pilots work with emotions. 
Saleem sifts through the human condition to find stories and insights that will help us define our most fundamental relationships: our relationship to our own emotions, and to each other’s.

Love, Love, Love!

Helps me to realize and understand all these crazy emotions! Guess what?? I am human!

Superficial and fine

Nice introduction to the world of emotions. Pretty superficial content compared to other psychological or philosophical podcasts. It’s lite and shallow like 10% Happier. Sanitized, safe, vanilla podcast perfect for the shallow crowd who fancies themselves on a journey. Perfect for those with limited capacity to understand complex topics around dread, depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.

Genuinely Perfect!

This podcast meets all the criteria for being real, honest, difficult and true. Thank you for this!
