HeartMath’s Howard Martin discusses how “happiness” is catching on and the growing field of positive psychology
Happiness. It’s something we all strive for, and yet some of the most fundamental and powerful approaches to tapping our own source of happiness have been overlooked, that is until now.
I sat down to have a heart-to-heart discussion with Howard Martin, executive vice president of HeartMath to learn about some of the latest breakthroughs in heart intelligence, intuition and how the field of positive psychology is putting a whole new slant on how to truly live a happy life.
As a leading figure in the field of heart intelligence, Howard weighs in on how we can tap the heart to invoke more intuitive promptings, and level our emotional states in order to live a more fulfilling life.
This episode was filmed on-location at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
