Name: The Happiness Lab
What is it?
The Happiness Lab is a podcast by Dr. Laurie Santos which discusses new scientific insights about happiness research.
Why do you like it?
I enjoy listening to this podcast because it is basically a self-help guide, but deeply grounded in scientific research. Also, it has a cheerful tone to it, which makes me more likely to tune in. I think it has helped me to build a more optimistic view on life.
Where to start?
In march 2020 The Happiness Lab started a mini series to help with the mental problems that arose due to the global pandemic. For example, loneliness or struggling to keep relationships intact. As Coronavirus is still around those episodes might be a good starting point, but even after the pandemic they can provide valuable tips on how to cope with more extreme situations.
