Daily Habits of Happy People: How to Be Happy (3/3)

You can learn the daily habits that happy people use to foster a lasting happiness. These are skills that you can develop. In this video we’ll talk about 14 daily habits that happy people practice to create more joy in their lives.
I don’t know about you but the pandemic has seemed to make it harder to feel joy. We spend less time doing things with people we love, we stay home, a lot of people feel depressed, anxious, lonely, tired, or bored.

So let’s get our joy back, let’s stop waiting for something to change before we can feel happy again. Here’s my list of 14 things that I start trying when I want to increase my joy and happiness. And I’m not just talking about coping skills or stuff that feels good in the short term, in my opinion, these are skills that foster a sense of lasting happiness because they line up with the kind of person I want to be.

In therapy I use a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Systems Theory, positive psychology, and a bio-psycho-social approach to treating mental illness and other challenges we all face in life. The ideas from my videos are frequently adapted from multiple sources. Many of them come from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, especially the work of Steven Hayes, Jason Luoma, and Russ Harris. The sections on stress and the mind-body connection derive from the work of Stephen Porges (the Polyvagal theory), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing) Francine Shapiro (EMDR), and Bessel Van Der Kolk. I also rely heavily on the work of the Arbinger institute for my overall understanding of our ability to choose our life’s direction.
And deeper than all of that, the Gospel of Jesus Christ orients my personal worldview and sense of security, peace, hope, and love https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/comeuntochrist/believe

  1. +1 sellect music what gives u positive vibe and make a track list. Avoid melancholic music.
    Thank you for your work i am really greatful to found your channel.

  2. No matter what you do if you get more screwed up your homeless then people really hate you. The ironic thing is that we are such a paradoxical society, which will cause mass mental illness. The whole population is going to go starkers dealing with their paradoxical past.

  3. They say do self care, build a social support network. What dies that mean? I have no idea. I thought family was supposed to he there I thought freinds… no non of that. Isolation lonlemess I sucks. I guess after awhile, yu just have to learn to be content never feeling good. I don't know what's wrong. But there's very few people that want to talk to a person with a mental illness. It's like if you tell anyone there's a target on your back. Just stick with who cares.

  4. I tried being happy I can't stay there. It's easier to stay depressed. But then all these other things happens. I'll feel happy feeling hopeless, cause that's all I can feel.

  5. Worth listening to a couple of times. Full of good stuff – particularly like exchanging a beautiful photo each day, reading (Garrison Keillor!), writing down good stuff you experienced, bringing joy to others, rounds of full, slow breathing (do any time). PS. Try planting some seeds on your kitchen counter, nurture them, watch them grow. Extra – take lots of vitamin C and niacin.

  6. Hi my name is Suzie. I have a panic disorder. When I feel that I'm going to have a panic attack I usually have to Stop what I'm doing and take slow deep breaths. I tell myself that everything will be ok. God tells me every time I feel one coming. Listening to Christian music usually helps me. I love listening to Chris Tomlin 😍 his music helps me a lot 😊😀

  7. Yeah, hard to feel joyful when I've got mouths to feed and don't know where or when my next paycheck is coming from. Sorry to rain on your parade.

  8. I have severe anxiety. Being able to work from home during the pandemic has done wonders. My stress went down significantly. I am worried about going back to work in an office.

  9. I just discovered your videos and had to share it with a few people I know that also suffer with trauma and anxiety. Just listening to a few has already helped calm my anxious mind. Thank you for your work.

  10. I really enjoy this channel so much and find a lot of common sense wisdom here. In fact, the definitions at the top of this video, not from her, are the first puzzling thing I've ever seen presented on the channel, and it's quite inconsequential. Just curious about what other people think, though. For me joy and happiness are inverted to what they are described as in the quote. Happiness has always been a general, underlying, and lasting state that comes from deep within and usually out of daily practices. Joy is the feeling of short terms bursts of pleasure from little events or pleasant thoughts or interactions.

  11. I started recording good things and gratitude as a Lenten project. I've kept it up because it really does work, and the journal entries are lovely to read back afterwards. Thank you so much for these videos – – I love them!

  12. Oh my goodness! You read Patrick McManus! What a great suggestion to bring positivity into my life. I’m going to pull one of my favorites out right now.
