Are you looking for ways to improve and be happier in 2022? I sit down with behavior psychologist Kurt Nelson to talk about the simple practices you can implement to make your life more enjoyable and fulfilling. There are a multitude of behavioral biases that influence how you think and act and the subsequent emotions that occur, so it is important to arrange your personal environment in a way that allows you to thrive. By focusing on health, gratitude, and more compassionate relationships, you can tackle the year with motivation and positivity.

-Kurt Nelson is a behavioral psychologist and comes on the show to talk about how you can make your life happier in 2022
-There are so many behavior biases that influence how you think/act, and the subsequent emotions that occur
-The ‘fake it until you make it’ phenomenon is actually very true to a certain degree
-Beliefs about ourselves have a large impact on our own abilities
-It is important especially for children, teens, and young adults to have their own sense of self/what they want as they get older
-One thing we can do as we ease into the new year is focusing on what will make us healthier—this can include getting more adequate sleep and eating well. It’s important to set up your environment to help you do this
-We are more motivated when we feel like we have control over our lives and when we see progress
-If you’re feeling unsure/uneasy, it can be helpful to jump right in and start—once you start, it’s easier to keep going
-Keeping a daily gratitude journal can help switch the way that you process your days; your brain starts searching for positivity
-It’s important to approach people and relationships with compassion, because it can re-focus the way that you view them
-Try to be someone that cultivates positivity and brings what you would want to a group
-Take ownership of where you are and why you’re not where you want to be, and think of what you can do to get there
-Set your environment up for success
-Remember that everything starts with attitude
