Join us for an hour-long conversation with author, Dr. Mike Rucker, who will discuss his book, "the Fun Habit: How the Pursuit of Joy and Wonder Can Change Your Life."
Doesn’t it seem that the more we seek happiness, the more elusive it becomes? There is an easy fix, hiding in plain sight. Fun is an action you can take here and now, practically anywhere, anytime. Through research and science, we know fun is enormously beneficial to our physical and psychological well-being, yet fun’s absence from our modern lives is striking. Whether you’re a frustrated high-achiever trying to find a better work-life balance or seeking relief from life’s overwhelming challenges, it is time you gain access to the best medicine available. The Fun Habit: How the Disciplined Pursuit of Joy and Wonder Can Change Your Life is the ultimate guide to reap the serious benefits fun offers. Grounded in current research, accessible science, and practical recommendations, Dr. Rucker will use The Fun Habit strategies to teach you:
How you can build having fun into an actionable and effortless habit; and
Why doing so will help you become a healthier, more joyful, more productive person.
The Fun Habit is an inspiring and motivational guidebook that you will want to share with everyone in your life.
