Hi reddit! I'm Dr. Laurie Santos, host of the Happiness Lab podcast and Professor of Psychology and Head of Silliman College at Yale University.
I teach about the science of happiness and have found that many of us actually do the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better — so I started a podcast to share my findings on what we can really do to live a happier and more fulfilling life. Season 2 of the Happiness Lab premiered this week ( listen here ). We also have a few new bonus episodes devoted to protecting our mental health during the COVID-19 crisis.
I also created “The Science of Well-Being” on Coursera, based on my “Psychology and the Good Life” class at Yale which became the university’s most popular course in over 300 years.
