Dr. Amit Sood has written the book on happiness.
“The Mayo Clinic Handbook for Happiness” proclaims that “happiness is a habit.” Sood’s guide identifies strategies and techniques for finding — and keeping — the right attitude.
Sood joined MPR News’ Kerri Miller to talk about a key part of happiness: resilience. He likened resilience to the rumble strips on the side of the highway.
“From the rumble strip you can end up in the ditch, or you can recover back on the highway,” Soot said. With resilience, “the idea is to recover quickly on the highway of life.”
Sood pointed out the unexpected connection between happiness and adversity.
