You’re guaranteed the pursuit of happiness but, as Don Draper (from the hit TV series Mad Men said), “What is happiness but that moment before you need more happiness?” This week on our podcast, I had the great pleasure to talk with Dr. Kristin Layous, happiness researcher and expert. In the interview she shares what we can do to make ourselves less happy, more happy and the number one thing that we do that sabotages our efforts to stay in our happy place. More on Kristin… Kristin Layous has a Ph.D. in Social and Personality Psychology from University of California, Riverside and is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at California State University, East Bay. Her research primarily focuses on activities that promote happiness like expressing gratitude and performing kind acts. Specifically, she explores how and under what conditions these activities boost happiness, as well as who they are most likely to help. Check her out on her website: http://www.kristinlayous.com/
