Do you ever have “off” days and wonder how to orient your heart and your brain back toward happiness?
As we continue our series on Practicing Happiness, it’s my pleasure to welcome happiness expert Lisa Cypers Kamen to the podcast. Lisa is the author of a number of books on happiness, the creator of a well-known TED Talk, and a true thought-leader in the realm of recovery from addiction trauma, PTSD, and life crisis.
Join us on the podcast today, as Lisa and I discuss the very real ways to harvest happiness in our day to day lives.
Lisa opens with the acknowledgement that she’s struggled with depression at times, and she gently reminds us that life is not always happy. We have to recognize and acknowledge this first and foremost. Part of life is experiencing the peaks and the valleys.
Yet, we have more control and dominion over our lives than we often believe. There is power in our thoughts, our habits, and our practices. We have a choice in how we relate to every event that happens to us.
We invite you to join us as we talk about ways to combat the overworked, overstressed, under-rested conditions of our society–and we’ll dive into how to overcome our brain’s negativity bias and more.
Lisa will close us by discussing her work with veterans and PTSD victims, and she’ll tell us the key ways that she personally practices happiness each day.
As Lisa says, “We are born with the freedom to be happy or the liberty to be miserable.”
