Science says that only 10% of our happiness comes from our external circumstances—our job and income, relationship status, health and weight, age, and where we live. That means that our happiness is largely up to us and the choices we make, the things we do, and the thoughts we think.
In this mini-episode, I speak with Robert Mack and Dr. Laurie Santos about why true happiness is a state of being, and not dependent on external factors, and simple actions you can take today to get on a path to happiness.
Robert Mack is an ivy-league-educated Celebrity Happiness Coach, Positive Psychology Expert, Published Author of Happiness from the Inside Out, and TV Host/Personality for OWN and E! Robert’s work has been endorsed by Oprah and many others.
Dr. Laurie Santos is a Professor of Psychology and the Head of Silliman College at Yale University, as well as the host of the critically acclaimed podcast The Happiness Lab. After observing a disturbing level of unhappiness and anxiety among her students, she began teaching a course entitled “Psychology and the Good Life,” which quickly became the most popular course in Yale’s history and has also reached almost 2 million people from all over the world through an online version.

This episode is brought to you by the Pegan Shake.
How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. I’m a huge fan of morning routines, because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.
What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Mark Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brain power.
It contains some of my most favorite brain boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
