The Appetite Episode 98:

Delight: The Mental Health Boost We All Need

Why does delight matter? We believe that, during the coronavirus pandemic, delight offers an opportunity for mindfulness, connectedness, and a boost to your mental health. Inspired by a This American Life episode called, “The Show of Delights,” Opal Co-Founders Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS, Dr. Lexi Giblin, PhD, CEDS, and Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD are talking with host and therapist Carter Umhau, LMHC about what delight is, and how we can distinguish it from joy and pleasure. They’ll also be sharing what delights each of them and how these things have a place in their lives, particularly during the time of COVID-19. Join us for this feel-good episode!



We were so inspired by This American Life’s episode about delight, that it became the jumping off point for this episode. Listen to it here and enjoy:
