Welcome to our special event celebratory podcast episode! We are celebrating because today, March 20, is the UN’s International Day of Happiness and tomorrow, March 21, is the Potential Psychology Podcast’s 1st birthday! We’ve been sharing the science of wellbeing on the air for one whole year.

Throughout our first year we’ve explored well being, performance, goals, parenting, health, sleep, sport. resilience, yoga, work, strengths, hope and more.

Our amazing guests have educated and inspired us in so many topics relating to happiness but do you know what I’ve realised? I’ve realised that in 12 months and 39 episodes we’ve never asked the question, ‘What is happiness? And how do we get more of it?

This is the question we answer in today's episode. What's more, I've got our listeners and past guests involved.

Listen to our audience’s and guests' messages about what makes them happy as they help me to answer the questions:

  • What does the science say about happiness? What is it? What isn't it? And how do you find more of it?

  • What are the 10 simple, free ways to find more happiness, every day?

You'll also hear what makes the Potential Team happy and discover that calm, contentment and happiness is within your control, just by taking simple action

Listen in to celebrate with us!
