The Happiness Lab—My New Favorite Podcast!

You’d love for your kids to find happiness, but do you feel confident that you know the best way to help them toward that?

Gallup research shows us that elite education doesn’t actually lead to increased happiness—so what does?

Dr. Laurie Santos created a Yale course on happiness.

The course, called, “Psychology and the Good Life,” was the most popular course in the history of Yale University.

And thanks to podcast technology—it’s available, on demand, to people like you and me (and your teen or college student).

This Yale course is now my new favorite podcast.

Introducing—The Happiness Lab.


Join Dr. Laurie Santos as she presents data-based, scientific research and surprising, inspiring stories that will change the way you think about finding happiness.

Help your teen or college student learn about scientifically proven routes to happiness.

Tune in to The Happiness Lab sometime when you’ve got teens or college students riding in the car with you.

Listen to the trailer first, and then dive into episode 1.

You’ll do much to quell student anxiety, which is becoming an increasing problem on high school and college campuses.

Episode 1 of The Happiness Lab is ideal listening for teens and college students.

And if faith is a part of your family story, as it is a part of mine—strike up a discussion with the kids about the seemingly uncanny coincidence between the behaviors and choices that faith tends to inspire—and increased happiness in human beings.

Do your kids see a correlation?
