It's Advice Goddess Radio, with nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon: "Nerd your way to a better life!"
Join me for fascinating and fun discussions about love, dating sex and relationships with the top brains from psychology and science.
THIS WEEK, you'll learn how you can be happier by taking very small steps. I'll be talking with a very exciting guest, UC Riverside psychology professor, Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky, author of "The How of Happiness," and a researcher I greatly respect.
Lyubomirsky is terrific because she not only studies what makes us happy but gives practical advice on how we can be happier...even substantially happier, by making small shifts in our attitude and behavior. I highly recommend her book, which you can buy at this link: http://amzn.to/tkxEKU
I've referenced Lyubomirsky's work in my columns and it's the foundation of Chapter 10 -- "It's Nice To Be Nice" -- in my book "I See Rude People," where I use it to show how it's in our self-interest to be generous and pro-social.
The show will be on at a slightly different time this week, 7:30 to 8:30 Pacific, but we'll be back at our regular 7-8pm slot next week and beyond.
Lyubomirsky's research can be found here, on her UC Riverside website: http://www.faculty.ucr.edu/~sonja/
