What you’ll learn:

  • The hedonic treadmill
  • Negative visualization (14:25)

  • Practicing gratitude (21:00)

Also, podcast reviews are pretty darn important to iTunes (and other platforms). The more reviews we receive, the more likely we’ll be to get this podcast and message in front of more people (something about iTunes algorithms?).

We’d be extremely grateful if you left a review letting us know your favorite part of this episode!
