22 Nov Calm Cool and Connected: The Dog Park on Capitol Hill

There are several dog parks in my neighborhood, one behind the grocery store on South Street and the other, on the east end of the neighborhood, which is named for Mario Lanza, an Italian opera singer who grew up in the area. I take Ryder there to run and play – and for me to do some research on nature and behavior. I’m curious as to why we are so disconnected and divisive these days. There is so much to learn about human and other animal natures by taking a walk to the park. Hands down, people are weird.  Human beings...

19 Sep Is Positive Psychology Burning You Out?

Interview with Louis Alloro published by Michelle McQuaid on Psychology Today and Huffington Post If you’re someone who practices positive psychology and wellbeing and shares these approaches with others, it seems reasonable to hope that one of the perks of your work would be to more consistently flourish. After all you’re immersed in the research, you’re more likely to know what works and chances are you’re making a positive difference as you share these ideas with others.

During all of this time I have realised that one of my favorite functions in the world is caring for the caretakers. This is why I’d love to share with you what I am learning...

01 Jul Strategies for a Successful Summer

This is a piece I wrote for the faculty of a school I've been working with to instill positive education principles and practices. The message is for anyone who wants to have a mindful season. Here we are at the precipice of summer, a great time to bloom and flourish. Just look outside! I encourage you to do what Dr. Barb Fredrickson, a leading researcher from University of North Carolina says about “prioritizing positivity”—a strategy for incorporating daily doses of intentional wellbeing-building into your life, just as you would eat daily portions of fruits and vegetables. Positive emotions serve as nutrients, too,...

29 Mar The Birth of a Brand: www.louisalloro.com

Ladies and Gentleman, may I please humbly and appreciatively introduce you to my new home on the interwebs: www.louisalloro.com. Putting together a brand is damn hard work, especially when it’s a personal brand and especially when your life is your work. (Note: I am not living only to work; I navigate work & play quite nicely.) The truth is, though, I’ve been called to do what I do. Seriously. It’s a crazy feeling—to be called to your work; to be a part of something larger than yourself. It’s like participating in a theatrical production where everyone has a role to play on...
