The recently published World Happiness Report 2015 reminds us that happiness is increasingly considered a proper measure of social progress and a chosen goal of public policy. What about in your own life? Will you choose happiness as a goal for yourself? Our guests, Dr. Brenda Wade and Dr. John Demartini, talk about how happiness can be a day-to-day choice. Our conversation brings forgiveness, gratitude, and love into the concept of experiencing a happier life. Re-focusing your daily intention about your attitude and behavior can be full of rewards. You’ll hear:

  • why inspiration and coaching from others can add to your happiness
  • how giving up blame and resentment can soften and open your heart
  • about three ways you can move toward forgiveness
  • what it means to live gratitude and the “golden bottom line”
  • that happiness and health are true partners for a more joyful life
