Do you experience joy in your life? Do you seek pleasure? Or, do you just avoid discomfort to be happy?

You may ask aren’t all the same? The answer is no: joy and pleasure are different states of being happy.

Joy vs. pleasure is an important consideration in self-care since pursuit of pleasure could be addictive while feeling joy is a gift that is naturally installed in us. Tune in and find out how we might make quick, self-suiting, self-gratifying, self-indulging, and possibly irrational decisions in pursuit of relief from the situations that bother us and in the hope of gaining a state of happiness that could be self-destructive. 
Dr. Sadigh and his special guest Parisa Amirmostofian differentiate the elements of happiness and invite you to join them in this conversation. Parisa is a Clinical Fellow at  Loyola Marymount University. She currently practices at the Wheel of Wellbeing as a MFT intern and an art therapist. She holds her Masters in Medicine and she is educated in Color Light Therapy, Magnet Therapy and Vibrational Healing.
With over thirty years of artistic training, being a mid-wife, working in hospital settings in two continents, research in abnormalities of sperms, investigating hormonal correlations in breast cancer, practicing as a life-coach and being a mother herself, Parisa brings great understanding to this program.
