Boldly Spoken: Choosing Happiness

Boldly Spoken: Choosing Happiness

Ep. 16: Choosing Happiness: A Conversation with the Co-Founder of the World Happiness Summit, Karen Guggenheim


Karen’s own passion for choosing happiness is rooted in personal tragedy. Seven years ago she lost her husband of twenty-one years and decided that she could choose to be a victim and let one event define her life or choose to be happy. She chose the latter, guided by her intention to have a life full of purpose and meaning.  This act set her on a course to re-invent her life and connect with others studying the science of happiness.

For the last four years she has brought the world's leaders in science, psychology and wellness together, creating a ripple effect around the world by giving people tools to develop their happiness by implementing practices in their day to day lives. In this episode, we talked about her path, the science of happiness,  how important wellness in the workplace is, and how her foundation is helping to bring these practices to a wider audience including successful programs in schools and corporate settings. We also talked about steps everyone can take every day to increase happiness in their own lives, and how truly transformative change comes from the rather simple concept of consistency.  Lastly, we talked about the life changing aspect of choosing to be happy, and how growing your “happiness muscle” is both teachable and learnable, and vital for long term wellbeing.
