Are you happy? Nearly half of adults worldwide (40%) would say “no.” The problem with this question is that since happiness is a fleeting emotion, we should be striving for something more sustainable. In Beyond Happiness: The 6 Secrets of Lifetime Satisfaction, our guest today psychologist Dr. Jennifer Guttman guides us on how to live a deeply fulfilling life. Over the past five years, Dr. Guttman has combined both personal experience and professional insight gleaned from her three decades in private practice to introduce her theories to over two million people via her monthly articles published in Psychology Today.

Society instills in us that being happy is binary. But happiness isn’t a mindset—it’s a feeling, and like any other emotion, it comes and goes. In our interview today with Dr. Guttman, she’ll empower us to achieve sustainable lifetime satisfaction.

That of course is our guest today, Dr. Jennifer Guttman reading from her new book,  Beyond Happiness: The 6 Secrets of Lifetime Satisfaction,   Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast, Dr. Jennifer Guttman.
