#138 - Hardwired for Joy - with Jerry Colonna & Ingrid Fetell Lee (re-release)
When the disquiet and unease of turbulent times weigh heavy on our hearts, can opening ourselves up to joy provide respite from the loads we carry? Ingrid Fetell Lee, designer and author of Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness, joins Jerry for an exploration of how the experience of joy can serve as a balm in times of crisis. In this episode, Jerry and Ingrid define joy (and how it can be differentiated from happiness) and consider the role it plays in our lives. Ingrid describes how humans are hardwired to find joy and underscores the extraordinary ways in which it serves to combat stress and fortify resiliency in times of adversity. Ingrid reminds us that times of stillness can broaden our capacity for finding delight in ordinary moments, and how those small joys can sustain us in arduous times.
