Meaning & Existential Positive Psychology [PODCAST]

Press play and enjoy this conversation I had with friend and colleague Emiliya Zhivotovskaya. In this podcast episode, we touch on the following subjects:

  • Why asking better questions is crucial
  • The concept of “purpose anxiety”
  • How excessive focus on the self and one’s own problems makes everything worse
  • How to live a more meaningful life
  • The importance of making tough decisions and preventing misliving
