In this talk, writer, activist and artist Ari Honarvar introduces the mindful practice of savoring joy. Describing her childhood in wartime Iran, Honorvar says, "We were attacked from the outside and from within. There was an actual war, with daily funerals, random bombings, and missile attacks... And then there was a war on Joy that hurt in a different way... When there is a war on Joy there is also a war on people's coping mechanisms." When faced with hardship,  experiencing joy is a superpower of resilience. Through her background in providing workshops for refugees, she explains how to incorporate savoring pleasant moments in order to improve our well-being, even in the toughest environments.

    This talk reminded me that to savour joy I need to slow down and practice awareness. When I live my life on "automatic" I am denying myself the chance to be joyful.
