The Recipe for Creating a Meaningful Existence (The Science behind these Insights) “Curious?”

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 talked 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.

How Everyday Products Make People Sick

Kinshasha talked with Dr. Paul Blanc about his book “How Everyday Products make People Sick”.

This conversation revealed the hidden health dangers in many of the seemingly innocent products we encounter every day—a tube of glue in a kitchen drawer, a bottle of bleach in the laundry room, a rayon scarf on a closet shelf, a brass knob on the front door, a wood plank on an outdoor deck.
