As Seen On

Hi, my name is Neal Samudre, and people call me the happiest person they know.

But I wasn’t always happy.

After a rough season of counseling and facing my worst demons, I committed myself to studying the discipline of joy.

After studying joy for more than a year, I’m finally sharing my findings here with the goal to help you make joy a habit.

What is Joy?

I define joy as the internal positivity that stems from hope. It differs from happiness because it’s derived from our internal state while happiness is dependent on external circumstances. 

Joy is important for 3 reasons:

  1. Joy makes us resilient. The most joyful people are also the most resilient people, able to bounce back when life gets difficult.
  2. Joy makes us resistant. We’re less prone to having our external circumstances defeat our outlook.
  3. Joy makes us healthy. We do not fall victim to the health concerns that loneliness, numbing, and anxiety give us. 

How Can We Become Better at Joy?

To make joy a habit, we myst first become aware of the 10 mindsets that stop us from experiencing joy. Those mindsets are:

  1. The Reactive Mindset
  2. The Blame Mindset
  3. The Numbing Mindset
  4. The Drama Mindset
  5. The Fixed Mindset
  6. The Scarcity Mindset
  7. The Loner Mindset
  8. The Comparison Mindset
  9. The Comfort Mindset
  10. The Fear Mindset

What Should You Do Next?

All of my writings about my study of joy are run through the filter of these 10 mindsets. By following my articles, you can learn how to recognize these 10 mindsets and take actions to overcome them in your daily life. 

The goal is to help you make joy a habit.
