Joyful Living: Episode 11

View descriptionShare

Today’s episode is all about joyful living. What it is, what it isn’t, how to get more of it and how it differs from happiness.

Stemming from Brooke's intention to try and find more joy in 2024, this conversation is delightfully and unexpectedly wide-ranging, and in it Ben and Brooke explore:

  • the definition of joy, and why it means so many different things to so many different people

  • why much of the literature around joy is religious or spiritual

  • how joy differs from happiness and how it is similar 

  • the role that alcohol has on our ability to experience happiness and joy (and how Brooke's experience has changed since she stopped drinking)

  • how to adopt a lens of joy and happiness to life when you’re not a joyful person by default

  • why choosing joy is a revolutionary act

  • what the difference is between choosing joy and toxic positivity

  • how we can add more joy to our lives
