Chris Willard: The Magic of this Moment

Season #1

For most of us mere mortals, publishing even one book is a major accomplishment. But for Chris Willard, that’s a Monday. Chris is the author of twenty books, and he’s here to share his wisdom with us on this week’s episode of The Happy Hour. Chris is a clinical psychologist, author, and consultant based in Massachusetts (as a Yankees fan, Jonah will not hold this against him). He has spoken in over thirty countries and has presented at two TEDx events. Chris teaches at Harvard Medical School, and has had his work featured in outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and more.

Our conversation today covers a lot of interesting ground, including the nature of mindfulness and its importance in our lives, how to stay present in a world filled with distraction, keys for fostering resiliency after hardship, and how mindfulness can be taught to kids in a developmentally-appropriate way. Chris is super knowledgeable yet down to earth and accessible, and we think you’ll have a great time learning from him. We certainly did!
