141 The Science of Happiness: How to Find Joy and Get Back to Playing Through Positive Psychology with Michelle McQuaid
Are you finding yourself unsatisfied by the life path that you are on?
Do you ever feel like once you achieve a goal or you get where you want to be in your career or in a particular place in your life that all you want is more?
As we reach a level of technical success in our career, we stop learning new things and our lives become less engaging. Getting curious and staying interested in what matters to us is imperative in our lives. Keeping that sense of wonder keeps life playful and fun.
Today's guest, Michelle McQuaid, is here to teach us about her findings in the science of happiness, also referred to as positive psychology.
Her studies encourage us to look beyond our achievement-obsessed and outcome-focused society as that culture causes us to lose sight of the things that bring us joy in the every day.
Listen to our chat with Michelle as she shares her experience of reaching what she thought her career and life goals were, but then found herself wanting more from the life she created for her and her family.
