Rules for richer, happier days, with James Wallman

Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

If the most precious thing we have is time, the most highly prized expertise should be knowing how to spend it well. Yet, busier than ever, do we really understand which experiences bring us joy and success, and which don’t? After all, we’ve learned how to spot the difference between junk foods and superfoods. When you discover the equivalent rules for time, it’ll change how you live your life. My guest on the show today is James Wallman, author of one of my favourite books, Stuffocation. And now in fact author of two of my favourite books, because James is back with his new book, Time and How to Spend It. In the book, James investigates the persistent problem of wasted, unfulfilling time, and finds a powerful answer ― a revolutionary approach to life based on the latest scientific discoveries. At the heart of Time and How to Spend It is the inspiring revelation that, when you play by the new rules, you can actively choose better experiences. This is one of my favourite podcast interviews to date, and that's saying something with more than 220 guest interviewed recorded for Informed Choice Radio. Listen out for James explaining why it's not a lack of free time that's the issue, but choosing to spend that free time on our mobile phones; and why charging your phone outside of the bedroom leads to better sleep and more sex. We talk about experience intelligence, biophilia, and how doing things for other people leads to more happiness, and success. Here's my conversation with James Wallman, author of Time and How to Spend It, in episode 429 of Informed Choice Radio.

#64 Time and How to Spend It with James Wallman

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

Time is the most precious commodity we have, yet despite all the advances in technology, most of us are more time poor than ever before. Cultural commentator and best-selling author, James Wallman, believes that few of us really understand which experiences bring us joy and success, and which don’t. In fact, for many of us, free time can be harder to enjoy than time at work. James argues that just as we have learned to spot the differences between junk foods and superfoods, we need to learn the equivalent rules for time. He has drawn on research from psychology, economics and culture to create a seven-point checklist that he believes will help you avoid empty experiences and fill your free hours with exciting and enriching ones instead. We discuss the importance of putting ourselves in challenging or unusual situations, having fulfilling relationships, achieving a state of flow and being in nature. James also talks about the importance of having status and significance for happiness and explains how we can all attain this in our lives. Finally, James gives his top tips for leading a happy and fulfilling life. This is a really lively conversation and James is bursting with anecdotes – I hope you enjoy it!Show notes available at drchatterjee.com/64Follow me on instagram.com/drchatterjee/Follow me on facebook.com/DrChatterjee/Follow me on twitter.com/drchatterjeeukDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
