Did you know that there are research-proven advantages to happiness? That positive thinking truly affects the ways that our brains interact with the world? It’s powerful science, and today on the podcast, we’re joined by one of the world’s leading experts in this space: Shawn Achor.
Shawn is the author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness. He’s traveled the globe speaking about happiness and its causes, while also working domestically with some of our nation’s most well-known organizations, including the NBA, the NFL, and the Pentagon.
With a research background at Harvard, acclaimed work published in various national psychology publications as well as Harvard Business Review, guru to Oprah, and a top TED Talk under his belt, Shawn is truly a scientist in the field of happiness–and it’s a privilege to chat with him today.

Listen in as we discuss the amazing ways that a positive brain interacts with the world. As Shawn says, “Pessimism is a learned skill” (one that comes with many undesirable side effects), yet change is possible. There are practical ways we can transform our minds and choose positive thinking, no matter our circumstances.
Shawn will close by telling us three key ways to practice happiness daily. They’re powerful, and I hope that each of you will listen in.
