Dr Emily is back – and once again proving why she is increasingly becoming the most popular person on The Imperfects.This Emisode is all about a fundamental part of Positive Psychology… the beautiful idea that OTHER PEOPLE MATTER.
Now, you’re probably thinking… of course other people matter, right? Seems pretty obvious.
But here, Dr Emily explains what it is about ‘other people’, that matters so much, and how much it relates to our never-ending search for that elusive thing we call “happiness”.
