#193 How Fun Connects Parents and Teens: Interview with Mike Rucker
As we approach January we start to think about new healthy habits for the new year. Our guest today has a habit that I want to master. Dr. Mike Rucker is the author of the upcoming book, The Fun Habit: How the Pursuit of Joy and Wonder Can Change Your Life available January 23.
I think this is a perfect podcast to be released in the holiday season. How about starting this fun habit during the holidays.

There are so many gems in this episode. Why develop a fun habit? “It increases vitality and makes life worth living.”
