How to have more joy in your everyday with the fun expert Michael Rucker

Get Happy Hour

EPISODE – DR MIKE RUCKER BIOGRAPHY Dr. Mike Rucker is a charter member of the International Positive Psychology Association, as well as a member of the American Psychological Association. Mike is a frequent contributor to national press such as Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and CIO on topics related to well-being. Mike has spent the last few years studying the construct of fun and is coming out with a book on the subject in the summer of 2020. He has also published in peer-reviewed journals covering topics from employee well-being to ethics. SHOWNOTES Mike started off as an entrepreneur about 20 years ago and got introduced to academic professors of positive psychology and started using gratitude as a positive discipline. Mike suffered some setbacks a few years ago and was in despair and tried to use his tools of gratitude to pull him out but found himself deviated towards finding fun as part of a daily practice. Fun stands for adding not too much context to whatever we are doing and just finding the joy in it according to Mike. Auditing your week could be a great example to see where fun can be implemented and create more opportunities for joy. Creating opportunities around Mike’s children is an example of how he can create fun with her. Creating opportunities to ensure Mike has date nights with his wife are a timely investment in maintaining connection. Mike’s definition of happiness is showing or bringing pleasure or joy. Mike starts his day early with his kids and starts with gratitude. The top things that bring Mike joy in his life are creating art through content, hanging out with people that he loves water, and his animals. Mike’s fantasy meal would be a burrito. Mike’s non-negotiable would be extending loving kindness to others where an opportunity presents itself. The best thing that people can do for their health is sleep. Pharell’s Happy song would be his theme tune. Mike listens to a lot of comedians and music on the radio to make him laugh. Mike’s gratitude practice includes “paying it forward”, giving complements, BOOKS The Four Hour Week – Tim Ferress Laughter – Robert Provine THINGS DISCUSSED Website: https://michaelrucker.com/ Instagram: #thewonderoffun

The Power of Fun with Michael Rucker

Real Things Living

Dr. Michael Rucker's experiences are a great example of resilience. He used to be a tri-athlete and had to stop running a few years ago due to severe osteoarthritis. His younger brother passed away in that same time-frame. That was difficult to deal with, especially since running helped him manage stress in general.  He now makes time to focus his energy on the power of fun and writing a book about the benefits of it.  If you find joy in something, you will make time for it. https://michaelrucker.com
