Ep 113: What is flourishing? with Dr. Lyn Lanka

In this episode, Richard is joined by fellow psychologist Dr. Lyn Lanka, who explains the concept of flourishing. In particular, how we can flourish even though we’re experiencing difficulties or in a particularly challenging context.

As Lyn explains, it’s not just about ‘positive emotions’ but more to do with taking helpful action to move towards what’s important to us. Big thanks to Lyn for her time and her expertise.

I’ll share links to the concepts Lyn mentions, as well as her professional profile, in the show notes. By way of reminder, you can always find shownotes by visiting worklifepsych.com/podcast/ .

And as always, thanks for listening!
