Ep. 10 Community, Connection, & Happiness w/ Dr. Gillian Mandich | ReWildMyBio

Today’s guest is the wild and wonderful Dr. Gillian Mandich. We discuss all things Happiness just in time for World Happiness Day Friday March 20th. We could all use a little happiness right about now and in this episode we share stories and science that will help you cultivate happiness. We spend a lot of time discussing how connecting with family, and friends is an important pre determinant for happiness and how reconnecting with community, nature, and ourself we can tap into reserves of primal happiness that humans enjoyed until modern day distractions and expectations we put on ourself and others. We also discuss how having a shared sense of camaraderie and struggle increases happiness. Gillian has a white paper coming out Friday March 20th on happiness in the workplace. Enjoy the show!
