Key Takeaways

  • “All the research we do is designed to dig out the little things that make a big difference.”
  • Joy is a feeling of gladness, wonder, and peace that is not changed by circumstances. It’s deeper than our circumstances!
  • In 2019, the percentage of the adult population that had clinically significant anxiety or depression had risen to 11%. In January of 2021, researchers conducted the same survey, and the number spiked to 41%.
  • “What you focus on is what you will see.” So many of us don’t recognize that we’re stressed and anxious because we’re focusing on what makes us stressed and anxious.
  • “There is so much worthy of joy in our lives but it is so easy to miss it when we are focusing on other things.”
  • Don’t miss the gorilla! 🙂
