The science of the good life, huh? Sorry this is not about booze, sex and rock n'roll (or whatever is en vogue right now). In fact we talk about a lot of things that tree huggers would love: appreciation of beauty, gratitude, positive emotions, relationships and well, love. However we, that is positive psychologists and positive psychology practitioners buried ourselves in books, set out to experiment and then write it all up in a writing style that is about as exciting to read as watching an avocado turn brown. And that's the problem: if you are not an academic you probably want a little bit more excitement, than pages and pages of densely written journals can provide. Even if you are an academic, who has time to read all the interesting stuff out there anyways? So in an effort to save your eyes taking on a comically rectangular shape the positive psychology podcast brings the science of the good life to your earbuds. It's not all treehugger style though; sometimes we might get quite serious, for example when exploring things like post-traumatic growth or positive parenting. Subscribe if you want to benefit from the scientific insights into happiness and meaning while you are on the go. Let me know where you are while you are listening to this. If you like it review it, because that's the only way other people can find it too.

Like listening to a friend

I've never met you but I really like your podcasts. So if you're ever in Iceland please let me buy you a cup of coffee:)

Happiness Podcast

I studied psychology and counseling in the 90's, but the field of Positive Psychology was infant and out of mainstream research. How happy I am to have found it and this podcast! It's fantastic that this clearly passionate student of happiness and self improvement puts such effort into researching so many branches of this fabulous and growing field.

As a father of two kids (9 and 12), I have been seeing myself through a different lens over the last decade. Like most people in today's rush-rush society, I struggle with the day to day, rarely taking the time to slow down and introspect.

Not only has this podcast helped me to become more aware of personal/cultural/social influences in my happiness, but just as importantly it has helped me to become a better parent and partner.

I like to listen to the episodes twice: once for me and then a second time keeping the development of my children and my parenting strategies in mind. I should probably do it 3 times - once for each child; they each have their own needs!

I only subscribe to 3 podcasts of the many that I could. This is one. And the ONLY one that I keep all the episodes!! I am certain that you will find gems and nuggets that resonate for you here. :))

Thank you, Kristen!

A great introduction to the field of positive psychology!

I’ve spent the last several weeks going through the archives of the podcast and I have to say that Kristen does a great job of relating positive psychology to bettering ourselves and our lives in simple but effective ways. Her interviews are with some of the leaders in the field and are always interesting and insightful. I am always interested to hear what she has to say. Keep up the good work!
