A personal episode that looks at the science of Empathy and Gratitude in the wake of the 2016 election.
The morning of the 5th I awoke to a new world. A world that I didn't want, but hope that it will be alright. I wanted to create this episode to help us find some love and kindness in the world today. Sometimes we can get flooded by the negative vibes around us and I think science can increase our inner awareness regarding our capacity for empathy and for gratitude. In this episode I break down multiple studies with findings that will empower you to choose a happier mindset and therefore a happier life. Today's world seems to be doubling down on fear and hate... Let's take a different route by doubling down on love, empathy, and gratitude. Doing so will not only enliven the self, but will permeate through those around us. And when love spreads, a better tomorrow will follow.
