How Your Small Decisions Add Up to Happiness with Alexandra Amarotico

Aug 05, 2019

NOTE: This is a legacy episode from the Women Inspired podcast, before it transitioned to be the Building Psychological Strength podcast. While you will hear some mention of the Women Inspired brand during this episode, the content is highly relevant to the goals of Peak Mind, which is why we have included it here. Enjoy!

Have you ever thought about the number of decisions you make on a daily basis and the impact they have on your happiness?

The decision to light a candle at dinner, bake cookies with your kids, or share a meal with family and friends.

These decisions add up and can have an incredibly meaningful impact on your happiness.

That is exactly what we’re talking about this week with Alexandra Amarotico, the author of the book The Secret Joy of Hygge (pronounced HOO-GAH). Alex learned about the notion of Hygge after traveling to Denmark and seeing how they intentionally make small decisions and changes in their day to cultivate this cozy feeling. She’s bringing the notion of hygge to the U.S. with this incredible book.

We talk so much about happiness in this episode, which I LOVE. We also talk about chasing big, life-long goals like writing a book and how to fit that into a busy life.

This episode is so wonderful, and I can’t wait for you to meet Alex Amarotico. Listen to it next to a cozy candle under your favorite blanket.
