In the latest episode of Awareness Addicts, Dr. Gala Gorman, the show’s host, discusses with listeners how to create order in their lives. Routines and discipline can help create structure when chaos gets overwhelming.
Dr. Gala Gorman refers to an article from Forbes, “Ten Habits of Incredibly Happy People,” which is based on a study conducted by Northwestern University that measured happiness of people who had recently won large lottery prizes against regular people. The results were surprising. The differences between the two groups was almost negligible.
In the episode, listeners will:
- Find ways to better organize their lives
- Utilize routine and discipline to help create order amid everyday chaos
- Consider what it means to live an orderly life
The article reads, “The mistaken notion that major life events dictate your happiness and sadness is so prevalent that psychologists have a name for it: impact bias. The reality is, event-based happiness is fleeting. Happiness is synthetic—you either create it, or you don’t. Happiness that lasts is earned through your habits.”
As Gorman explains, “We need to examine our routine and determine what feels good and what is soothing us … helping to calm our minds and our physical presence … so that we have more capacity to deal with the chaos that’s going to accompany some of these changes that we’re proactively wanting to make.”
In this episode of Awareness Addicts, Dr. Gala Gorman discusses finding easy and practical ways to create order … even in the midst of chaos. Listeners are encouraged to put things that they have control over in order to establish a pattern.
