22. Dr. Melanie Harth on Happiness as a Disciplined Practice and Authenticity

Dr Melanie Harth on HappinessToday I’m talking with Dr. Melanie Harth about Happiness and how to make it a disciplined practice we can work towards.

Many folks, myself very much included, don’t have a high happiness set point. For me, I have to work at being and staying happy. Many of us have to diligently practice being happy. When we do, that’s when we experience happiness, and when we experience happiness, we bring in even more happiness into our lives, especially when we are being authentic to ourselves. Change comes from taking action. For many of us, it comes by practicing happiness.

Dr Harth has the same belief about happiness. She teaches and helps others create their own practices. Listen to her story and her experiences. A great conversation!
