How can you find a sense of personal peace and happiness when there’s so much misfortune going on in the world?

We are wired to take our cues from outside ourselves. Social media, television news, our culture and other people show us how we should behave and react to what’s happening in society. If we keep this up, we’re going to keep suffering.

You have to turn your attention elsewhere. Look inside yourself to find some peace. You have to find what works best for you. Quiet your survival brain when it doesn’t need to be engaged. Consider exercise, nutritious eating, and meditation. 

Listen as Dr. Shelley Uram joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how you can manage peace and happiness when bombarded with bad news.
