We’re all on the quest to attain true happiness and contentment. Yet sometimes actually obtaining it is a little harder than it seems. So, what does it actually take to be happy?
In the third episode of marie claire x The Thinkergirls' podcast, Stacey June and Kristie Mercer, sit down with marie claire features editor Kathryn Madden who shares her experience of completing Yale’s ‘Happiness Course’, which was created by one of the Ivy-League school's professors who had noticed an influx of high-achieving, high-anxiety Yale students and wanted to teach them about positive psychology.
After a condensed version of the hugely popular course was released online, Kathryn gave it a try - and the results will surprise you.
Plus, the women explain why we need to reframe the word happy and why it's important we open our vocabulary up to use other words to describe how we're feeling.
