Feeling Good In Healthy Ways In Under 2 Minutes with Jonathan Robinson

Jonathan Robinson has made a lifelong study of what makes people happy and has discovered some powerful principles that, when practiced, can turn your life from misery, complaint, anger, and sadness to one of happiness, delight, and kinship. He gives many tips as to how to create more joy and balance in your life such as taking a moment to “spoon” with your partner when emotions start to escalate. He gives us a brilliant question that will connect us to strangers on a profound level, even in the briefest of encounters. He is constantly looking for the kinds of questions we can ask ourselves that deepen our connection with others and help us to focus our minds in a good direction. For example, he challenges us to look at what we would choose to be doing if we had a million dollars and were required to work 40 hours a week. He says, “In other words, what is the work that you find so rewarding or important that you would do it for free?” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
