“Fully Charged should be required viewing for everybody. If we all tried to act and react positively to everybody around us, the world would certainly be a better place, and that may be precisely what we need at a time like this.”
Film Reel review


Based on the latest book from #1 New York Times best-selling author Tom Rath, this inspirational documentary shows how you can take advantage of the latest research to approach each day with high levels of energy, purpose and meaning. Fully Charged follows individuals and organizations transforming themselves and their communities through healthier choices, interactions that strengthen relationships, and pursuing meaning over happiness.

You will hear from a company in Minneapolis where employees work on treadmill desks, a church in Chicago that gave its members $500 to spend on others, a “guerilla gardener” planting vegetables in South Central LA’s abandoned lots, and the co-founder of an organization (KIPP) that has helped thousands of low-income students make it to college. Fully Charged also features the world’s leading experts on behavioral health (Brian Wansink), the psychology of spending (Ryan Howell), social networks (Nicholas Christakis), decision-making and behavioral economics (Thomas Gilovich), willpower (Roy Baumeister), and the role of meaning in our work (Amy Wrzesniewsky). Filled with this expertise and powerful real world stories, Fully Charged will reveal some of the most practical ways to energize your work and your life.
