The Recipe for Creating a Meaningful Existence (and the science behind these insights) Curious? Mar. 22nd Health Notes
March 15, 2010
When we think about seeking daily joy and lasting fulfillment, cultivating curiosity is rarely the first thing that comes to mind but based on groundbreaking research, professor Dr. Todd Kashdan talks with Kinshasha about the engine behind achieving a life that is most worth living.
The book CURIOUS? offers the profound new message that the greatest opportunities for joy and personal growth happen not
when we're searching for happiness, certainty, and safety. Instead, when we are open to new experiences and when we relish the unknown, positive events linger longer and we extract more pleasure and meaning from them. CURIOUS? shows us how to begin cultivating curiosity on our own and how to develop a concrete plan for building meaningful relationships, improving health, enhancing well-being, identifying strengths and making the most out of them, and discovering meaning and purpose in life -- even during times of loss and adversity. These and other topics are fueled by original thinking on the importance of approaching every moment with an attitude of openness and curiosity. Kashdan allows us to understand what it takes to thrive and meet the challenges of everyday life.
