Making your happiness last

Have you ever felt amazing when you've reached a goal, but that feeling didn't last as long as you expected? So you go back to what you know, and you set another goal. This goes on and on with very little difference to how you actually feel. 

This is a process called hedonic adaption, and this episode is all about battling this feeling.

Join Meg as she discusses:

  • How chasing happiness can feel like you're on a treadmill
  • The research on our pre-determind happiness set point 
  • How some of the narrative about having laser focus on your goals can be damaging to your happiness 
  • Why making happiness your north star can help
  • Three ways to avoid the feeling of chasing happiness forever
