Episode 134: Happiness Skills
with Nataly Kogan
Genuine emotional wellbeing doesn’t come from making everything in our lives perfect and never feeling any difficult emotions. It comes from allowing ourselves to feel all that we feel, to accept ourselves and the world as it is.
Happiness isn’t a state of being or a simple feeling — and it doesn’t come from the outside. It’s a skill we can all practice and improve, no matter our starting point. On today’s episode, we talk about:
- achievement doesn’t lead to happiness
- accepting that happiness is inconsistent
- 5 core happiness skills
- The emotional immune system
