Happiness in America is dwindling, according to a 2022 Gallup survey. There are several factors that play into this trend, but perhaps the most important question is whether we’re stuck being unhappy. Do we have to just endure?
In this podcast episode, Darlene Brock and Julie Bender address the state of unhappiness that’s rippling through the world right now and answer the age-old question of whether or not it’s appropriate to pursue happiness as a Christian.
Together, they lay out practical steps for finding happiness and boosting your overall mood, which covers everything from being aware of the content you consume and where you’re spending your time (quite literally!), to your perspective on gratitude and whether you’re actually harboring resentment toward someone or something from your past.
Minor spoiler alert: You don’t have to stay unhappy. But where you land on the matter is largely impacted by your choices. Tune in to this episode to see what small change(s) might make a world of difference.
