    I read a book recently called "Your art will save your life" and the long and short of it is... don't feel guilty for feeling happy even though times are tough! You need happiness to stay sane. Happiness gives you energy that you can use to be an activist, change the world, and make good art.

    I taught myself the habit of clapping my hands together (almost like in a prayer sorta position) whenever i receive or consume anything. Eating is the easiest example, and that's what I started with (actually the entire habit was supposed to be a reminder to thank whatever I just consumed and acknowledge process it went through to get to my plate). If I eat something, I clap my hands together and that reminds me to think about what I just received and how unpleasant it would be if I didn't have it. Then it just naturally exapanded to other small things. If I'm at a clothes store and I tried something on and need to put it away, I put it on the /discard/ rack that they have around fitting rooms and clap my hands together. And I think /how convenient, how nice that someone is going to handle that for me; thank you, person who is going to handle that for me/.
    Makes me realise how many small nice things there are just because I clap my hands together so many times in a day. Just sorta makes everything more pleasant and exciting when you consider the alternative of not having/receiving those things.
    So I guess in a nutshell my tactic for happiness in the right now is practicing gratitude.

    I’m so happy you’re sharing these things to a wide audience because they are so helpful. I truly do believe that happiness is a mindset that anyone can tap into any time. Although, I do think it’s important to realize too that we also need (and want) negative emotions sometimes and we need to learn to accept that ❤️

    Yeah, no that is not how you do it. I learn meditation. Because as a grown up we are used to just use this small fraction of out brain that is always thinking about the past or the future. So while meditating we are training ourselves to be fully in the moment. And while doing so our brain develops new connections to neurons to use other parts of our brain. As a result of being somewhere else than the past or the future in our mind, we get happy.

    My Mom's name is Linda and what she always says to me is to be happy is to not expect the external things to happen to you. How you perceive things is what makes you happy. She's also in her mid 50s.

    I’m extremely down politically. Especially because of global warming. Especially, because there’s already solutions to the problem that need funding and exposure. Laser-boron fusion energy. Say it with me kids! LASER-BORON FUSION ENERGY! (HB11) Look it up! ✨

    A major reason for my extreme anxiety, depression, and occasional suicidal episodes over the last 2 years is my negative attitude. I've just always had that mindset - never paying attention to what I have, and thinking all the time about what I don't have. I always prepare for the worst case scenario, and get fixated on every bad thing (even if it isn't happening). I've learned in therapy that that mindset is really, REALLY not helping my mental issues. I'm going to give this a shot.

    Linda has true joy. Joy is internal contentment and happiness regardless of external circumstances. that’s what I want.

    What I ask myself is if it is morally acceptable to be happy in a unjust and cruel world like ours. Like when i open my tv an see all the atrocities that are happening around the world, i feel almost guilty to live such a comfortable life... anyone else?

    I agree with Linda, and I think I try to do what she said too. To a degree. Like try to be cheery in instances that are less than ideal. Like if I go for a walk when it’s freezing cold, I try to be “happy” and not complain cause: A. I chose to walk in the cold B. Make the best/most of it so you don’t get discouraged from doing it again.

    I am really fortunate to found your channel&vids just at the right time, I have been more open but still stuck with problems that I found answers but still not assured if it's really the correct thing/way. And the way you tell us, help us, and give us are so much and many I don't know what to say other than Thank you!
    p.s. ur vids are commonly from mildly amusing to making me burst out laughing too, really love them xD!
