Today’s episode of The Lively Show is a huge honor for me to share with you.

I’m talking with author and lecturer, Tal Ben-Shahar. Tal taught two of the largest Harvard classes in the history of the school, and I was a lucky student of his Positive Psychology class — tuning in “un-officially” during my time at The University of Michigan.

His work has made a huge impact on my life and I am pumped to get to share him with you today on TLS(!!!).

In the show we cover a wide range of topics including: positive psychology, the origins of “self help,” the importance of diversifying our self-worth, perfect vs. optimal, and how to effectively implement habits that will boost our happiness.

This episode is perfect for anyone who geeks out on the topic of personal development or wants to get some easy takeaways to start improving their life one optimal step at a time.
