Finding Freedom: Choosing Your Connection to Happiness with Caitlin McCarthy
In this episode of More Than Good Food, we explore the concept of Happiness. In said happiness is one of the pillars of health. She also said that happiness is a choice - a controversial statement for some. Webster Dictionary defines happiness as a state of being happy, which doesn't really say much of anything, in my opinion. However "happy" is defined as feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. What does that mean in terms of living a healthy life? In a society of social media, where we are expected to show ourselves at our best, what does happiness really mean? Is it a fleeting sensation of pleasure, and where does contentment fit into it? These are the questions that came to mind, and that I posed to Caitlin McCarthy. Get the full show notes at
