There is little doubt that the things we watch, the activities we engage in, and the people we associate with can make life enjoyable or frustrating. The good news is that it’s never too late to make a positive change in your life.
Vlogger Flavia Tumusiime emphasizes that if you want to level up, glow, and be happy, you must eliminate certain things. One of these is to modify what you watch—be aware of who and what is influencing you, as it has the potential to shape your entire life.
She claims that sometimes all you have to do is click on one YouTube video to be taken to a slew of others, and it’s easy to lose track of time and spend an hour or more just viewing. Before you know it, you’ve squandered your time on videos that aren’t even educational or have no takeaway message.
“I was engrossed in a Netflix series and kept sliding to the next seasons, wondering how I managed to finish four seasons in two days.” Catching up on other shows is even more addictive. “I would sometimes cut back on my sleep hours simply to keep up with the series,” she recalls.

Tumusiime recommends switching what you’re watching for more productive or educated stuff, such as podcasts like Robin Sharma’s ‘Mastery session,’ which she claims has been educational for her.
She also mentions that if you’re going to watch YouTube, seek for stuff that you need, and that parenting videos are acceptable to view if you’re a mother or father. If you’re dating, relationship videos will help you, and so on. She doesn’t like the concept of someone going on YouTube without knowing what they want to view because it’s easy to get distracted by irrelevant videos.
Happiness is the aim of life, according to author and Dr. Howard C. Cutler in his book “The Art of Happiness.” Happiness is more a result of the mind than of events, external conditions, and circumstances once a person’s essential requirements are addressed.
This book shows how everyone of us is in charge of our own happiness. It claims that we can all achieve pleasure through training our hearts and brains, as well as actively working on our attitudes and views.
“Pay attention to the things that bring us joy and eliminate the things that bring us pain.” We can move away from material possessions and toward contentment and an inner sense of worth by obtaining peace of mind in this way.”
Cutler is a writer.
Irene Mwiza is one of many people who has found happiness in unusual places. The Gikondo resident and businesswoman had lost her luster many years ago as a result of a romantic break-up that had left her perplexed and unsure on how to make her life enjoyable as a single woman.
It wasn’t easy, but life had never been the same for her until she modified several behaviors.
Mwiza’s initial step was to alter her appearance. She began exercising and dieting in order to feel completely at ease and fashionable in some of her nicer outfits that no longer fit.
Despite the fact that results took a long time to appear, she believes she had to persevere because she needed to prove to herself that she could handle it. Her confidence grew once she achieved her body weight targets.
She also started her own business, and she no longer relies on anyone for financial help like she did previously.
Mwiza has also attempted to detach herself from relationships and friendships that were not assisting her in growing as a person or propelling her to the next level.
“I also turned to reading books,” she says, “and I must admit that it has empowered and challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone and use the knowledge and concepts to change as an individual, friend, believer, and businessperson.”
According to a Harvard research, it is close relationships, not money or celebrity, that keep individuals happy throughout their lives. These bonds buffer people from life’s disappointments, aid in the prevention of mental and physical deterioration, and are better predictors of long and happy lives than socioeconomic class, IQ, or even DNA.
