Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, PhD, taught the largest course at Harvard, Positive Psychology, and the third-largest, The Psychology of Leadership, attracting 1,400 students per semester—approximately 20 percent of all Harvard undergraduates. His latest book is: Short Cuts to Happiness: Life-Changing Lessons from My Barber and joins eHealth Radio and the Psychology and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar discuss the following:

  1. Tell us more about your friend and barber, Avi, the inspiration behind the book.
  2. You explain that shortcuts to happiness are right in front of us, but we often miss or neglect them. Why is that?
  3. What are a few simple ways to boost our mood and quality of life?
  4. You emphasize that relationships are the No. 1 predictor of happiness. What does research tell us about this?
  5. In the book, you explore how happiness intertwines with our business lives. Could you expand on that?
