Positive psychology is an emerging science that investigates the qualities, attitudes, and practices that enable people to thrive and be happy. So what does this research reveal about human happiness? Are some of us just born with happier dispositions than others? How (if at all) do health, wealth, family relations, and community ties affect our happiness? Do happy people have a better or worse grip on reality than unhappy people? And is happiness something really worth pursuing? John and Ken get happy (scientifically) with Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Science Director of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.
For the fourth episode of Happiness at Work Podcast I invited Ineke Hurkmans, founder of the Jump Movement. A simple method which can help you start a conversation in your team about anything you'd finally like to change.

'PAT RILEY' is a combination of tracks made during the last year already voted off a new album and other artists' tracks that we've been listening to a lot through-out the year. At times, the two intersect. 'Don't Leave Me This Way' has provided the soundtrack to driving around Miami, The KLF have aided in the 'Chill Out' process throughout, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' presentation of Janet's Rhythm Nation has intimidated us into working with particular diligence this time around. The 'Melatonin' cover is on there because most of what we've been making music about has to do with either sleep, travel, or spirits. Lastly, the whole mix was sequenced with a 4-5 mile run in mind, so if that's your thing, turn it on and "run 'til you're within an inch of your life.
