Timely and incredibly important NOW
Thank you for your straightforward advice and tools to combat these body images issues. Love the offense and defense strategies. I will be sharing this over and over.
Love your podcast, I heard only one and you’re awesome. Thank you for putting the time in. I appreciate the “freebie”some people are just so selfish and entitled!
So many gems

Episode 116: What we can do to make society better
Thank you for sharing what you do, both big and little, to make our world a better place. This episode encourages me to take small steps to build momentum towards social change. It’s been a while since I listened to this podcast so this was a great one to start over with. Thank you!
Very insightful, love love love!
I enjoy every episode. I feel like I’m talking to a friend. I always find some useful advice and something I need to think more about or reflect on. Thank you soooo much for the good work.
This podcast has helped me out of a dark place and become a better person. I am truly grateful and hope that others will benefit from it as much as I have! Thanks!
Where Have I Been
I’m a recent PhD graduate, and for sometime people in my social network stated I should try and listen to some relative podcast. I am SO HAPPPPPPPY I found Kristen - where have I been. Can you binge listen to podcast (lol).
Fresh voice in a crowded room.
I have been on the hunt for a positive mind podcast and stumbled across this one. What kept me tuning in? Her honesty, how upfront she is about her knowledge and lack of knowledge of things and lastly, I can hear the fun and enthusiasm she has for this topic. She’s not here just to make money or become famous. She actually wants to engage with her audience even if it’s 1 person listening. Give it a try. I’m sure you’ll like it.
Easy to understand, relate and apply to every day life. I needed some positive motivation and encouragement and Kristen definitely hit the nail on the head. Very informative yet fun to listen to as well. I’m glad I came across this podcast
Meets the very high expectations
That the title and ratings imply. Listen for 5 minutes and you’ll see what I mean.
Helpful to Learn about Positive Psychology
As a new student and benefitiary of this type of happiness, I enjoy the conversations and guests on the show.
An important part of my current development
Truempy is smart, funny and down to earth. Great interviews with diverse speakers. Entertaining, educational and uplifting. The Positive Psychology Podcast is part of my weekly enrichment program!
I am now about 40 episode deep into Kristen’s podcast about Positive Psychology. Each episode comes packed with great information and insight. I have come away many times with ideas in mind on how I can make my day a little better through positive psychology behaviors. She offers a mix of her own insights and research combined with industry expert interviews. The podcast is well balanced and science based. Kristen is equal parts intelligent, thoughtful, and goofy. If you are a psychology nut or just interested in learning more I highly recommend this podcast.
I’m so happy to listen to this podcast every day. It has helped me go through some very rough days and I love listening to Kristen’s voice!
Brilliant! Useful to anyone!
I'm a Clinical Social Worker who has been trained in many things, some of my trainings have lasted multiple years. Very very few of the things I have learned have been so easily applied and easily utilized by myself personally, and in my work with clients. I treasure these podcasts. Thank you. I feel deeply appreciative and deeply impacted by them.
Words are powerful
This show is a much listen. I feel like I just feed my mind with each episode! Thank you so much for spreading joy.
This is a great podcast! I just feel like a friend is talking to me and telling me stories. Refreshing to listen to and I love Kristen's perspective and insight about positive psychology.
This podcast is full of really valuable insight. I love the guests she brings on.
Need an Energy Boost? Listen to This!
This is one of the best podcasts out there! Kristen shares inspiring, actionable content to help you live your best life. What makes Kristen shine in a sea of podcasters is that she is authentic and is truly talking about something she is passionate about. I am so happy I stumbled across this podcast.
Thank you Kristen for not only sharing life changing information in an accessible way, but for sharing your personal experiences in such a genuine and authentic way! You show us what real happiness is like lived out day by day. Happier in Dubai
Where to Begin
Hi Kristen, Where do I even begin.... I suppose first off I would like to thank you so much for this podcast. I have been listening for a while now. Currently, I was just looking for other podcasts and I couldn't help but compare those podcasts to this one. May I say in my search I was very disappointed, which is why I think I was inspired to write a review. Many other reviewers have said your podcast to be "like talking to a friend," in which I completely and utterly agree. Your love for the subject and its listeners is very much felt. About every time I listen to your podcast, it doesn't matter what topic, I feel extremely inspired to be a better person, to live a better life, and be proactive, so much so that I hope to someday be a podcaster like yourself spreading life's light as you do. I like to live by my quote which is, "Something as simple as a smile can change someones day and potentially their life." Thank you for being that smile for me and many others. You truely have touched and changed my life in the best of ways. Thank You again and Best Wishes, Kate
No this isn't big production, but it has outstanding content. The host is both personal and insightful. It is helping me become a new me.
True gem of a podcast!
I work evenings, and love listening to positive, uplifting and informative podcasts. I found this one a couple of weeks ago, and have listened to almost all past episodes. I find something relatable in every single segment. I love that it gives me the opportunity to reflect on my life and grow, all while walking at work! Great podcast. I recommend it to all of my friends! Looking forward to future episodes.
One of my Absolute Favorites
Thank you Kirsten for creating this awesome podcast! I've been listening for about 6 months and you consistently deliver such awesome and interesting material. For anyone who is genuinely interested in understanding how to live the good life, I would highly recommend your podcast! I get really excited every time I see a new episode downloaded :)
The Feel Good Stuff
Thank you Kristen!! I feel like you are my good friend! I turn to your podcast when I need a lift! I desperately needed this podcast at this time in my life. I have been going through major changes over the last year or so, unfortunately it has brought out extreme anxiety, depression, and a hidden low self esteem but I have to say by listening to every single one of episodes of The Positive Psychology Podcast I feel I was given ways to think and live healthier. The tools that Kristen so generously gives to all to use will help me through a lifetime. I also really enjoy that she invites professional guest speakers to give their different perspectives as well. Thank you for bringing a joyful experience for all to enjoy. I will forever be grateful!
Just Can't Get Enough
This is by far the Podcast I look the most forward to. Kirsten's real-ness and genuine heart put her in a class all her own. The positivity I take from this podcast inspires me to stay positive and share that positivity with as many other people as I can.
A well produced podcast
I love this podcast. I never write reviews but I felt this podcast deserved one. It has many techniques, exercises, and lessons to increase the positivity towards ones life. Tremendous effort! I'm very thankful to listen to these!
This is my favorite podcast and I look forward to each and every new episode. I can't tell you how much this podcast has improved my life. Ten stars would be more appropriate.
I enjoy the way Kristen explains things in a simple way that you can apply to daily life :)
Hi from Chicago!!!
Amazing podcasts! Goes hand in hand with every day commute on my end..has helped me with the current issues in my life...thank you!!!! Really thank you!! I wish to meet you one day and have a conversation like this with you but I know life intermits so for now I'll continue to listen ..and if there's anything that I can contribute please let me know....high five and hugs!
I've tried a lot of self-help podcasts. This one is by far my favorite. She is very encouraging, supportive, and personable. She shares a sprinkle of her own experiences, so it feels like she's with you.
Uplifting and Informative
I love this podcast. It's become an important part of my mental health care. I really appreciate the way the material is presented- in an informal and caring way- like conversing with a compassionate friend. Thank you for your contribution to humanity!
Motivating and informative
Hi Kristen. I found your podcast a few weeks ago. I've been binge listening. I tend to jump around, based on your episode titles. So far, I've enjoyed 005, 006, 018, 020, 027, 037, 042, 065. Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work!
Helpful and Delightful!
I binge listen to every episode over the last three weeks. I learned so much! I love how knowledgeable Kristen is, but also how she delivers the information in a simple, easy to understand manner. I also enjoy how she connects with her listeners, it's like I'm having a chit chat with my best girlfriend.
I really enjoyed episode 55 which I found while listening to the top 10 episode of 2015. Very informative information initially presented through a book by Kelly McGonigal a researcher who is working with the issue of willpower. The presentation was well delivered and I'm planning to share it with several of my clients who struggle with motivation and the difficulty of developing positive habits. Great job, Barbara Monett, LCSW Santa Cruz California
Hi, I want to thank you for your wonderful podcast. I've been slowly reading Martin Seligman's work and listen to your podcast simultaneously. I know now that I've been very pessimistic for the past 8 years because of personal and professional setbacks. With Seligman's book and your podcast I have a new bounce in my step, feeling empowered to change things back to optimism I've had years ago... thank you, thank you, thank you!
I really enjoy the Positive Psychology podcast. Kristen provides great topics which are down to earth and thought provoking. Kristen is very genuine and her podcasts are uplifting. Keep up the great work!
AMAZING AND INSIGHTFUL
I love how her topics can really open my eyes to things I never really thought about. So far as a new listener I have already started to look at things in a new light and perspective!! Awesome podcast!!
Smart living by living well
There are so many things I want to say here. I will simply say that this podcast is infectious and life changing. Thank you for your work!
Well worth listening
Stumbled upon, started listening, glad I did. Nice mix of relaxed personable easy listening, grounded information and nuggets to get me thinking in a good direction and tidbits to start applying practically to my life. Thanks.
A great introduction to the field of positive psychology!
I’ve spent the last several weeks going through the archives of the podcast and I have to say that Kristen does a great job of relating positive psychology to bettering ourselves and our lives in simple but effective ways. Her interviews are with some of the leaders in the field and are always interesting and insightful. I am always interested to hear what she has to say. Keep up the good work!
I studied psychology and counseling in the 90's, but the field of Positive Psychology was infant and out of mainstream research. How happy I am to have found it and this podcast! It's fantastic that this clearly passionate student of happiness and self improvement puts such effort into researching so many branches of this fabulous and growing field. As a father of two kids (9 and 12), I have been seeing myself through a different lens over the last decade. Like most people in today's rush-rush society, I struggle with the day to day, rarely taking the time to slow down and introspect. Not only has this podcast helped me to become more aware of personal/cultural/social influences in my happiness, but just as importantly it has helped me to become a better parent and partner. I like to listen to the episodes twice: once for me and then a second time keeping the development of my children and my parenting strategies in mind. I should probably do it 3 times - once for each child; they each have their own needs! I only subscribe to 3 podcasts of the many that I could. This is one. And the ONLY one that I keep all the episodes!! I am certain that you will find gems and nuggets that resonate for you here. :)) Thank you, Kristen!
Like listening to a friend
I've never met you but I really like your podcasts. So if you're ever in Iceland please let me buy you a cup of coffee:) Cheers Hildur
