I try to maintain my joyful spirit by reflecting on all the wonderful things and people I have in my life. When I tend to think about what I would like and that I don't have it causes me to get discouraged. So i try to reflect on the positive. There are situations that people are in that are a lot worse than mine. I have to remember that in all honesty my life is good. There are trials and tribulations that i face but it's good for me to continue to have joy no matter what. I think being joyful can greatly affect our outlook on life.

I agree with you that to be joyful it's important even when facing trials. There maybe mamy different trials we have to face in life but being joyful can greatly help us endure. I also think that taking care of our body increases our joy. When we take care of ourselves we feel better. And when we are feeling bad about our bodies or are down it affects our joy.
