We start a new Season of Carpe Diem Connections in which we'll be talking about 10 Keys to Happiness as defined by Action for Happiness. This week, I'm talking to Kelly Guyon who was my "secret Santa" for the Reddit Card Exchange.

In this final episode of 2020 and of Season 2 of Carpe Diem Connections, we explore the topic of Positive Technology. We are following along with Ingrid Fetell Lee's Joy Makeover and discussing the episode in which she talks to Pamela Pavliscak a positive technologist.
In this episode, Becky Burns and I talk about Finding Joy during the holidays during this challenging year. We discuss some ideas for creating alternative traditions including celebrating Kwanzaa during the final week of the year.
This week, co-host Becky Burns and I continue our deep-dive into Joy. We are discussing topics from The Joy Makeover and this week we talk about how order and decluttering might help us find inner peace and joy.
Do you find more joy in spending money on experiences or things? Tune in as we continue with topics from The Joy Makeover, this week discussing the relationship between joy and money.

This week Becky and I continue exploring the Joy Makeover where the topic is Joy and Relationships. We talk specifically about ways to connect with others during this 2020 holiday season where we're probably doing Thanksgiving a little differently this year due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Rebecca Burns has agreed to be my co-host as we talk about Finding Joy. I've become enamored with Ingrid Fetell Lee and her recent Joy Makeover workshop. She offers a workbook and a very interesting set of interviews, digging deeper with topics about things such as how our joy is affected with 11 different topics starting with time, money, and relationships.
Becky and I do our own deep dive into these topics and add a few more that are particularly relevant for the times or for us. For example, this week, we'll talk about Joy and Politics since the election is causing so much anxiety for so many people. As I write this, the vote is still undecided.
