Science now has proof that doing things that make you happy is good for you, the people around you, and most likely the planet too.
So next time you hesitate to do something that secretly makes you happy — skip rocks, take a singing class, make something silly, or pursue a wild-hare idea that’s just too crazy or feels too childish — do it anyway. Jump down that rabbit hole. Fall in love. Take a risk: say YES.
Want to make a Harry Potter wand but don’t have a kid? Who cares? Who knows — you might just find out what your patronus looks like.
The act of creation makes us more creative. Whatever you feed, be it despair or joy, grows stronger.
Feed the joy-wolf!
