Podcast: 10% Happier
Guets: Emma Seppala
Emma Seppala is a fascinating women. An academic at heart she is now focused on debunking myths of the mind. I found it useful listening to her outline the differences between the two types of happiness we experience as human beings on 10% Happier with Dan Harris.
1. Hedonic: Sex, drugs and money - this happiness tends always to have a short half life and we almost instantaneously want more.
2. Eudaimonic: This is happiness associated with a sense of purpose or meaning in life.
If you are aware of the differences - you can spectate on your emotion and choose to act accordingly.
