International Day of Joy – Since 1981

Day of joy

There is no manual for cheerfulness.

The 24th of July has been celebrated worldwide as “Joy Day” since 1981. What do you do on a day like this? … simply rejoice! As simple as this sounds, we often find it difficult to live cheerfully. The feeling of happiness and the sensation of joy is highly individual. There is no manual for happiness.

According to the WHO, depression will be the most common disease by 2030.

After the end of adolescence, life becomes more and more a string of obligations. In addition to stress at work, so-called “leisure stress” is also becoming increasingly noticeable. Stress should not be seen as negative in principle, as it is what enables us to differentiate desires, develop perspectives, find the drive to plan and implement things, i.e. to perform. Stress makes us ill when the strain can no longer be adequately regulated. The full picture of a severe emotionally limiting stress disorder is called “depression” in our understanding. The WHO predicts that by 2030, affective disorders will be the number one widespread disease in the world.

How do we keep our cheerfulness?

The decisive question is “what do I want?” and many people already fail to answer this question. Those who get closer to the answer will also find the tools for a healthy psyche.

We often fall into the pattern that it takes greatness to be happy. The perfect holiday, the great love happiness, the faster car. A fallacy – contentment as a foundation means the ability to perceive what is good for us and to constantly integrate this into everyday life. Dealing with the question of happiness once does not establish life satisfaction.

The art of enjoyment and social participation, i.e. actively cultivating friendships, are the most important factors here. The latter would like to be real and not just virtual, in the digital world.
