SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an impactful new show, "The Science of Happiness." The program, which explored how the idea of happiness has changed, what makes people happy, and whether happiness is just an illusion, aired Sunday, Jan. 22, at 5 p.m. PST on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. "In your Right Mind" is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's panelists included Veena Kumari, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Sovereign Health, who oversees Sovereign's scientific initiatives, including the development of new processes, technologies and products; and Laura A. King, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Missouri, and one of the world's leading experts on the study of the meaning of life.
"In animals, as well as humans, when the brain's reward system is stimulated, we see behaviors that might indicate happiness," said Dr. Kumari. "Many of our activities or other experiences that might make us happy, such as listening to music, smelling a flower or remembering happy memories, increase our brain's reward system."
"We think of pleasure as more of a state component and happiness as more of a stable and longer experience in a person's life," said Dr. King. "We think of happiness as more durable, and a person can take it with them across different situations; whereas pleasure is more of a momentary experience."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
