It’s Not What Happens to You, It’s How You React that Matters

It’s Not What Happens to You, It’s How You React that Matters

Finding happiness (or just being happy) while living through a pandemic can be challenging, even on a good day. Fortunately, Dr. H has some thoughts on how to find happy moments regardless of your situation.

He shares one of his favorite stories about the philosopher Epictetus that just might be what you need to hear to change your mindset. It’s a story he’s shared on the podcast before, but as Dr. H reminds us in this episode it’s important to, “find ways to direct your mind toward satisfying thoughts, ideas and activities, and away from the places of misery and complaint.”
