For me, joy comes from feeling inspired. This can be spurred on by:

  • Making a playlist of songs I can jam to
  • Working out with a motivating friend
  • Talking to a family member about fun times from the past
  • Listening to podcasts or interviews of people I respect
  • Looking at inspiring art
  • Learning something new

Based on your name, I am gathering that you like reading. What is a good book you can recommend to others which has brought you joy previously?

Try to find your way to feel epiphany. That feeling is best for evolution of human being. I prefer watch the Jason Silva on Youtube, he gets me inspired every time.

Here is the 'to do list' my offer ;

- Follow a few tv series to watch

- Pick a good diet for you , i think you absolutely have to try fasting(IF)

- Put your sleep on a routine, get a sleep of high quality

- Try to feel that there is no authority for your life, there is just happening what you do and feel, so dont waste your life with a feeling like someone can get involved in your life. They just trying and soon or late they will understand that they can not put their finger through your life.

Not finding joy gives me motivation to read about it.

I wouldn't normally read a book but if I pick up something that talks about happiness then I'll be able to read it.

Wanting something is a good first step towards finding it. If I want it, it means that sooner or later I'm going to do something to get it.

I can't find joy in the things that I've tried. Which means that there's a lot of other things that I need to try before I find joy.

Perhaps, I can't find joy because of the ways I think. This is an opportunity for me to try cognitive behavior therapy or  journaling, or talk therapy, or reading, or some other way of changing my thinking process.

Not finding any joy right now doesn't mean that I won't find it in the future either. Nothing is permanent.

I can't find joy. But, on the plus side, I've been able to identify that I can't find joy and tag it as depression! That is progress already from where I started.

At this point I could read up for ways to conquer depression and keep trying out those ways.
