I made a film about what it takes to be happy In an ever-so-distracted world. This is something that came to mind during quarantine when I spent well over half my day on my laptop (including creating my videos, of course). So…what makes you happy?

We’re too absorbed in our daily lives. We keep doing one thing after another and just live life by ticking off boxes on a to-do list. That can’t be the key to being happy, right? I took a step back and thought a little bit more about what makes me happy — and then I made a video about it.
