Unlocking the Power of Happiness

The world we live in seems to be better than ever. In many ways, it is a world of abundance and prosperity. Modern technology keeps us connected and brings us closer than ever before, while the huge progress in medicine ensures our health and well-being. And yet, so many of us struggle with feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression and stress.

Why is that happening? Why, despite many accomplishments in our lives, we don’t feel happy and fulfilled? And what can we do to change this and learn how to combat stress, unlock our full potential and rewire our brains for happiness?

If you want to find out the answers to these questions and much more, then you should definitely listen to this new podcast!

The Happiness Squad podcast, hosted by Ashish Kothari and Anil Ramjiani has the goal to inspire individuals, teams and organizations to unlock their full potential and thrive, rather than just survive in this increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world that we are living in. 

Anil and Ashish are going to explore together a range of modalities and strategies that we can integrate into our lives, so we can literally hardwire for happiness, versus a hardwiring for fear and scarcity that we often find ourselves in. 

In this first episode they will first introduce themselves, they will talk about their background, will share their origin stories, how they met and how the idea of this podcast came up.

You will also find out more about the mission of this podcast and what Ashish and Anil hope to accomplish with it.
