Creating Meaning, Memories and Happiness with Meik Wiking. Possibility Podcast Session 14.
Host Sarah Knight talks happiness, meaning and memories with Happiness Research Institute CEO and internationally bestselling author, Meik Wiking. Meik is one of today’s most influential happiness researchers. He is the author of several books, including the New York Times Bestsellers: The Little Book of Hygge and The Little Book of Lykke, and most recently The Art of Making Memories: How to Create and Remember Happy Moments. As our changing world demands that we re-examine how we live, and what we want to make of our lives, Meik’s work might be more relevant than ever before. How can we create more meaningful experiences, and how can we ensure that we store these moments as fuel for future happiness levels? Is there a societal shift on the horizon towards valuing emotional gain above material gain? If making memories is a process, how can we worry about the outcome less and enjoy that process more? In this interview Meik offers some of his learned and practiced wisdom, and some great tidbits from his new book, on these questions and more.
