Here are the notes for episode #40x of Naked Humanity.

This week a listener asks Stefani about how to be happy. She’s got a steady job, friends, romance–what gives? Why isn’t she happy? Stefani talks about advertising in the modern world, the demand that you be happy, the illusions of social media, and why chasing happiness makes you sad. She reflects on her own journey and argues that the secret to happiness isn’t to seek it, but to seek something far more important instead.
