Expectations – how they link to our happiness

Welcome back to series 5 of our podcast! In this first episode, we discuss expectations and how they link to happiness and resilience. Expectations of ourselves, of other people, of work, of society, of events and how each of these can impact our own perceptions of happiness.

We explore what happiness is and how finding happiness isn’t about constantly chuckling while grinning from ear to ear. And we conclude with our usual round-up of top tips to takeaway.

As always, there’s lots of happy laughter throughout, and during the conversation, we refer to the following books, articles and resources.
