“When the month of Adar begins joy increases!”

Adar is the month we celebrate the holiday of Purim (On Purim we are “commanded” to be happy and have fun. But what if we don’t feel like it? Well, that is why we are “commanded” to do it even when, or especially when, we don’t feel happy. It is a practice! Purim helps us access joy and levity.
I previously shared about setting the right conditions for living the life we want, instead of setting goals. Happiness is closely relates to it and works in a similar way. Setting the conditions and having reminders for happiness in place are key to experiencing happiness.
We know from studies that smiling and laughing, even for no reason at all, changes how we feel. When we engage in smiling and laughing we set the physical, chemical, and neural conditions to feeling happier.         Enjoy! Rabbi Sigal
