Why are we talking about it?

1

Social isolation and uncertainty, fear to catch a disease, feeling of economic insecurity, loss of loved ones, exhaustion and faintness after the illness – all these cause depression, anxiety, anger, and despair.

2

We often hear from students, educators, parents that today there is less and less joy in Ukrainian education.

3

Although there are systematic studies of joy in the world, the general public knows little about them – people do not know how to use the research findings in practice.

Why bother to create more joy?

225 scientific studies show that people with more joy:
img
Are more productive at work and more creative
img
Make more money and have more sought-after jobs
img
Are more effective leaders and negotiators
img
Are more likely to marry and have fulfilling marriages, and less likely to divorce
img
Have more friends and social support
img
Have stronger immune systems, are physically healthier, and even live longer
img
Are more helpful and philanthropic

Don’t wait for joy – act!

4 acts of joy

Let’s do together 4 acts of joy to build up and consolidate 8 pillars of joy for us.

img
1 SHIFT PERSPECTIVE

Look at the situations from a different point of view to see the bigger picture.

2 EXPRESS GRATITUDE

From appreciating people and pets to moments and memories we can feel grateful and grounded.

3 DO KINDNESS

Practicing kindness feels good and creates a ripple effect of greater good.

4 CONNECT TOGETHER

Reach out and discover what's shared and special between us all.

8 pillars of joy

8 pillars of joy represent 4 qualities of the heart and 4 qualities of the mind and help to achieve lasting happiness.

They were scientifically considered and defined by Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and were discussed in the book “The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World” by Douglas Abrams.

QUALITIES OF THE MIND

PERSPECTIVE

You can look at everything from different angles

img
  • A different view tells a whole new story
  • With our mind, we create our own world
  • View obstacles as ways to improve yourselves

HUMILITY

Try to stay humble

img
  • We are each one human being out of 7 billion
  • When you see someone may you never feel superior
  • Humility makes us feel more connected

HUMOR

it is definitely better to laugh and joke

img
  • Laughter helps us relax
  • Humor can help deflate tense situations
  • Laugh at yourself

ACCEPTANCE

First step to change

img
  • Peace comes from within
  • Do not fight reality
  • Accept your life in all its pain, imperfection and beauty

QUALITIES OF THE HEART

FORGIVENESS

Free yourself from the past

img
  • Free yourself from the past
  • Remember the humanity of those who have wronged you
  • Take back control of your fate and feelings

GRATITUDE

I am lucky to be alive

img
  • Every moment is a gift, an opportunity
  • Pause and count your blessings
  • Live every day like it’s the best day of your life

COMPASSION

That is what we strive to be

img
  • Develop a concern for others’ well-being
  • Acting compassionately often causes others do the same
  • Practice self-compassion

GENEROSITY

We are filled with joy

img
  • It is in giving that we receive
  • A person is a person through other people
  • Reach down and lift others up
img img

Everyone seeks happiness, joyfulness, but from outside—from money, from power, from big car, from big house. Most people never pay much attention to the ultimate source of a happy life, which is inside, not outside.

The Dalai Lama XIV
