The Formula for Happiness w/ Arthur Brooks
2894
The scientific study of happiness is a relatively new field, but in the past 30 years it has exploded. Fantastic! What have we learned? First off, great news, it turns out that we are NOT completely powerless against our DNA. Sure, our genes play a significant role, but there are many very important areas of our "happiness portfolio" that are completely under our control and can thwart that biology. Harvard professor, PhD social scientist, bestselling author, and columnist Arthur C. Brooks explains why so many people find themselves with a happiness problem. Luckily, he’s got the formula to solve it. // If you have questions or guest suggestions, Ali would love to hear from you. Call or text her at (323) 364-6356.
