In this episode, I talk with Mike Rucker about why crafting deliberate fun could be the key to experiencing more joy and happiness.

We discuss:

- Why we are often less happy, despite having more information and tools for happiness than ever.

- Defining fun and distinguishing the differences between high vs. low arousal fun.

- Understanding the PLAY model: A tool to assess how different types of activities contribute to our fulfillment.

Challenge: At [41:25], Mike challenges you to look at your previous 168 hours and take an inventory of how you’ve been spending your time.
