About This Show
[Previously The Born Happy Show] Reclaim Your Primal Happiness and Discover How to Thrive In This Crazy, Modern World.
Want to be happier? Whether you're struggling with insecurity, fear, procrastination, a lack of confidence, anxiety, panic or stress, or you'd just like a happier, more successful, creative, meaningful and fun life... this is the show for you!
The Primal Happiness Show is about ‘Primal’ meaning intrinsic, fundamental and natural, and ‘Happiness’ meaning the state of being at ease, connected and in flow. So we’re saying that just like everything else in nature, happiness is our primal state.
But the thing is… the world today is a crazy place. We’re living in unnatural times, which has resulted in most of us being disconnected from our natural state.
This show is designed to reconnect you!
Even if you've done so much self-help, personal development or self-improvement that you could write the book on them, you'll find this show is something completely different to anything you've come across before.
There's interviews and coaching sessions with well-known self-help, happiness or Three Principles experts - such as Supercoach Michael Neill, best-selling author Steve Chandler, Timber Hawkeye of Buddhist Bootcamp and Jamie Smart, the best-selling Clarity author - and they're all pointing the way back to true happiness.
We take people on an incredible journey to discover the fundamentals required to access our primal state. All without having to move to a planet that's not so crazy as ours. :)

How to raise a happy, healthy human. A Happy Hour Conversation with Darcia Narvaez

This week's show is with Darcia Narvaez, Professor of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame. Darcia publishes extensively on moral development and education. Author or editor of 13 books, her most recent authored books include Embodied Morality: Protectionism, Engagement and Imagination, and Neurobiology and the Development of Human Morality: Evolution, Culture and Wisdom, which won the William James Book Award from the American Psychological Association. She is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Educational Research Association. She is executive editor of the Journal of Moral Education. She also writes a popular blog for Psychology Today (“Moral Landscapes”). Her academic scholarship has moved from work on nonconscious moral rationality, to moral character education in the schools, to the neurobiology of moral development, to the study of evolved parenting practices, and the study of small-band hunter-gatherers who represent the type of society in which humans evolved. All this comes together in a moral developmental systems theory that emphasizes the ongoing epigenetic plasticity of how we develop our humanity and our morality. We are co-constructed by our families and our experiences. Ultimately, Darcia's concerns are for developmental optimization and fulfilling human potential—actionable communal imagination. In this show we spoke about Darcia's studies around the best environment and practices for raising children. What you'll learn from this episode: Natural childbirth - keeping the mother and baby together, low lighting, and a calm environment - provides both mothers and babies with the best start. The baby should really be in the womb for another 18 months in terms of its development compared to other mammals. We can support babies in this crucial time of development through providing a calm, loving environment and responding quickly to their cries. This means lots of positive touch (nearly constant carrying and cuddling) meeting a baby’s needs before they get upset and their brain is flooded with stress hormones. Breastfeeding is important until at least 2 years, ideally to 5 years. Breast milk provides the fo
