Happiness in Small Doses, a case for coping with strange times of isolation.

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

Hello darlings,

what have you done to make yourselves happy today?

We are living some very strange times and spending way too much time locked in . Social interaction has been minimum, fear has invaded our lives... Covid times have taken away so much joy from our routines and fear has completely highjacked our minds. How to cope?

As an artist I am used to spending many hours alone at the studio. Many hours with nothing but my own thoughts. An artist naturally "quarantines" to create and what keeps us sane and going is our exposure to beauty, to colors and mostly doing a pleasant activity, something we love. So please, "book time" for happiness the same way you would book an appointment. You cannot live just to fulfill your responsible role. We must arrange time for the little pleasures. Whether this is preparing yourself a specialty coffee, taking a private dance lesson, eating that cake... You have no excuses. Make time for pleasure today... and tomorrow and the days after.
