We all want to be productive, but at what cost? Often people place mastering productivity as their #1 priority, which can actually limit happiness. We need to reverse this order to get the most benefit. This week, episode 197 of the Positively Living Podcast is about seeking happiness to be more productive!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I’m sharing how prioritizing your happiness actually makes you more productive in the long-term and giving you simple steps to take right now to seek more happiness in your life. 

I cover the following topics:

  • Positivity boosts your brain power and creativity, allowing you to become more flexible and inclined toward original thinking.
  • Happiness leads to positive and optimistic thinking and thus, drives motivation.
  • People who are happier tend to take more risks and expand their learning, which leads them to make fewer mistakes over time.
  • Doing things that you enjoy puts you in a state of flow, (the most productive state) 

If you focus on being productive, you may or may not be happy. However, if you focus on being happy, you’ll get happiness and an amazing byproduct called productivity.
