Do an uplifting and enjoyable activity that's not goal-oriented, but just plain fun. This causes endless frustration, misunderstandings and disappointments in our daily lives.

Both block joy, so by releasing them, joy flows into you. You will find that people appreciate to know they are not alone.
And yet it is critical to try to reconnect with those persons, places, and things that were once able to give us enjoyment. After losing my sister suddenly, breaking up with an ex boyfriend and getting kicked out of his home and having to leave 4 precious cats behind all in one month, and then again getting kicked out of a family members home that I then stayed with, has left me so depressed and finding it so hard to find and make new friends.

It is like jumping for joy and floating down. I just need to lie down for a minute. I enjoy playing computer games that give me adrenalin and keep my mind occupied. Seeing life from a new point of view can give you new ideas, inspire you and make you shake off whatever is keeping you from feeling joy. After everything I've been through.
The trick is connecting with the right people, the kind who experience joy themselves. The same with all other emotional feelings - fear, anxiety, worry, jealousy, hatred, longing, compassion, love, devotion. Finally a time will come when thoughts come and go like a bird passing through the sky, without leaving a trace. And even if the entire world hated me, I am still happy with who I am. Try to express the various feelings through dancing, such as anger, sadness, compassion, joy, love, ecstasy, and so forth.
I read this article on a daily basis to get through the day. I slept 12 - 14 hours a day, but it just felt so good. After reading this post I am little further towards my purpose of life. Why then can I not be content? But on dark days, and lonely nights, the pain is haunting and can be mournfully obnoxious, even to me.

Head and gaze slightly up. Clynes found that the same emotion in people all over the world produces the same kind of muscle response.

Dear Kunoichi, Yes, be patient and kind with yourself. In order to heal our emotions we need a four-fold approach. This inner transformation can be achieved with the indicated mind tools.

The emotional build-up is strongest, if there is a certain time interval between individual actions. It begins with your attitude and perspective. So we cherish all the great memories, but find ourselves at a crossroads, giving up the old to make way for a new beginning. I don't know if I'm just jaded, or if I've disconnected, or what. Slightly move an arm, a leg or your head and experience how each move feels. Surrounding yourself with other joy seekers vastly improves the nearness of joy in your own life, which makes it that much easier for you to access.
