We talk about why it’s helpful to remember that the things that go wrong often make the best memories—for example, I passed out on live TV! Plus a hack about holding hands, and we ask the know-yourself-better question, “Are you in an age of expansion, or an age of concentration?”
We have our annual discussion about why and how we plan to design our summers, I explain why I splurged on some colorful felt-tip pens, and we talk to award-winning actor Juliana Margulies about her terrific memoir “Sunshine Girl.”
We reveal our “20 for 2020” lists and discuss some great ideas from listeners, discuss a color-related hack to make it easier to find lost objects, and talk about some advice from our mother—about not giving advice.
Try the S.L.A.N.T. approach to help yourself listen and learn more effectively, an easy way to do a happiness-boosting good deed, and how to deal with a sweetheart who responds very unenthusiastically to good news.
