Psychologist and New York Times Bestselling author Dr Tal Ben-Shahar taught the most popular course at Harvard on Positive Psychology – but he’s also the perfect guest to help us navigate how to be sad, well.

From a dashed career as an elite squash player to navigating the perils of perfectionism, the fallacy of arrival and the importance of feeling all of our feelings – Tal has explored highs and lows both personally and professionally.

Now, Tal says: ‘One of the major obstacles to becoming happier is the belief that life can and ought to be free of painful emotions.’

Here, we talk about

  • positive psychology vs toxic positivity
  • arrival fallacy
  • perfectionism (aka sunk cost’)
  • why we need to embrace ‘wholebeing’
  • the SPIRE model for living and being sad, well
  • what advice Tal would you give to his 21 year old self
