Yes, some “life experiments” have (at times) blown up in my face. But, hey, I’m a “Glad Scientist.” I learn a happiness lesson each time – and become all the wiser!
I view whatever happens to me in life as “an assignment” – with a lesson to teach. And I love to write about all I’m learning in a humorous way – because I feel humor is a great enlightening agent. It loosens up the ego’s grasp – so you can reach for better perspectives and more insights.
(Psssst… Quirkie factoid: Jon Stewart has read/loved my writing – and personally told me he laughed lots while reading it. He even gave me an approved “blurb” to share on my books, site etc…– in which he said: “Karen Salmansohn has the spirit and sass of a stand up comic.” )
Each week in my “Glad Scientist Weeky” I’ll be sharing a personal story of something new I’ve learned in that gigantic petrie dish called “My Life.”
Or… I’ll share actual psychological or biological research studies – because I’m a voracious reader!
In particular, I love gobbling up studies on: boosting happiness, bouncing back from a challenge, raising happy/confident kids, sticking to resolutions, becoming happier in love, finding your purpose, increasing your self-love, upgrading your monetary-blueprint – and more!
Basically, I’m a passionate student of life – and I’m excited to share with you all the good stuff I’m learning – and unlearning!
Hi I’m Karen Salmansohn, founder of NotSalmon. My mission is to offer you easy-to-understand insights and tools to empower you to bloom into your happiest, highest potential self. I use playful analogies, feisty humor, and stylish graphics to distill big ideas – going as far back as ancient wisdom from Aristotle, Buddhism and Darwin to the latest research studies from Cognitive Therapy, Neuro Linquistic Programming, Neuroscience, Positive Psychology, Quantum Physics, Nutritional Studies – and then some.
