How To Have More Fun: Hidden Health Benefits, Becoming A Fun Magnet, & Phone Breakup Tips With Catherine Price

I am so excited to welcome Catherine Price as today’s guest on the podcast. Catherine is a speaker, consultant, and award-winning science journalist whose articles and essays have been featured in The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, The Best American Science Writing, and more. She’s the author of several books, including The Power of Fun: How To Feel Alive Again and How to Break Up With Your Phone. Catherine is also the founder of ScreenLifeBalance.com, a resource hub dedicated to helping people create more intentional relationships with technology and reconnect with what really matters to them in life. Her TED Talk, Why Having Fun Is The Secret To A Healthier Life, highlights her research on fun and has been viewed over one million times. On this episode we talk about:

  • the biggest impediments to fun and how to avoid them
  • why our phones are so addictive and the number one way to break that addiction
  • low hanging fruit for having fun
  • what to do if you don’t know how to have fun or what’s fun for you
  • what to do if you don’t think you have time to prioritize fun right now
  • how to start a delights practice to bring more joy and connection to your life
  • the 3 components of “true fun”
  • the number one thing everyone does that’s limiting our enjoyment
  • how exactly our dopamine triggers can hurt us & how to beat it
  • how to deal with “fun-killers” in your circle and find actually fun friends

Healthier Together: The Deck

Conversations for creating your healthiest, happiest life.

I’m gonna be honest with you: I’m allergic to boring conversation. I wanted to bring the types of conversations we have on the Healthier Together Podcast—ones that allow you to really build intimacy, to explore all facets of each other’s personality and go deep, quick— to the greater Healthier Together community.

With 6 categories and over 150 unique cards (including my signature interactive questions), you’ll be able to return to the deck for hundreds of hours of conversations for years to come. Makes a great gift or activity for holidays, weddings and more!
