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

Fleeting happiness is often called hedonistic and only includes emotions we tend to think of as positive, while other feelings such as sadness and grief are sent into emotional exile.
Joy is eudemonic happiness, which includes meaning, growth and acceptance, in particular, emotions we tend to think of as negative. It is good when joy goes together with a happy smile; however, it may share space with other neighbors such as fear or anger, or unhappiness. Happiness can’t do that.
It means that we don’t need to simply hope that we’ll feel better, someday, maybe. We can take the reins and create more joy for ourselves.
Only 50% of joy is determined
by unchanging factors, like genes or
temperament, and the other half depends on
Let’s do together 4 acts of joy to build up and consolidate 8 pillars of joy for us.
Look at the situations from a different point of view to see the bigger picture.
From appreciating people and pets to moments and memories we can feel grateful and grounded.
Practicing kindness feels good and creates a ripple effect of greater good.
Reach out and discover what's shared and special between us all.

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.
You can look at everything from different angles
Try to stay humble
it is definitely better to laugh and joke
First step to change
Free yourself from the past
I am lucky to be alive
That is what we strive to be
We are filled with joy
