The science behind why you can’t feel joy

This episode of the Dethroning Your Inner Critic podcast focuses on the importance of finding joy in the present moment and how many people are unknowingly blocking themselves from experiencing it. Joanna Kleinman, the host, discusses the negative impacts of living on autopilot and being driven by future goals and societal expectations. She emphasizes the power of small, intentional moments of joy in shaping our present and future experiences.

  • Finding small moments of joy daily can rewire our brains and attract more joy.
  • Our automatic mind is often stuck in negativity and needs conscious observation.
  • Processing past traumas and core wounds is crucial for lasting change.
  • Shifting our focus to present joy creates a ripple effect of positivity in our lives.
