Happiness in life depends primarily on three things: our health, our social relationships, and our experiences or the activities we engage in each day. For most of us, this third factor is largely about work. When it comes to living a fulfilling life, work matters! Work impacts our happiness directly by affecting our enjoyment and sense of fulfillment, and indirectly through its impact on our health and relationships. This podcast examines how different aspects of work affect our lives. Each episode we explore a specific topic related to the experience of work with a focus on understanding why it matters and how to make it better.
