Not only does being part of a larger movement provide young people with a sense of belonging but the friends they make in these communities can also provide them with emotional support. As we can see, simply being a part of the goth or emo scenes don't necessarily mean that young people will attempt suicide. Still, family members need to be alert to the different signs of depression that we have already discussed in previous sections. If you are worried about a friend or family member, it is important to let health professionals know as soon as possible. Other factors, such as the size of the individual seats, seem not to matter. The study demonstrates the importance of considering not just the design of aeroplanes, offices and stadiums in understanding and preventing antisocial behaviour but also the design of our societies when it comes to inequality. In many ways, the UK is a pioneer in the well-being field. For one thing, the Annual Population Survey asks 160,000 people every year four well-being questions such as Overall, how happy did you feel yesterday?',Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?', Overall, how anxious did you feel yesterday?' andOverall, to what extent do you feel the things you do in your life are worthwhile?' That gives nerds like me a good opportunity to understand what can explain why some people voted to leave the EU and why some people wanted to remain, in the Brexit referendum. According to the New Economic Foundation, happiness inequality was a strong predictor of an area voting to leave the EU. The biggest happiness gaps were found in places like Blaenau Gwent in the Welsh valleys, where an overwhelming majority voted to leave, while the lowest inequality in well-being turned out to be in places like Cheshire East and Falkirk, which were vastly in favour of remaining. On average, in the twenty most unequal places in Britain in terms of well-being, 57 per cent of voters wanted to leave, while in the twenty most equal places, only 43 per cent voted to leave. There's no time for guessing when the job will get done. There's no time for guessing how much time you'll put towards getting it done. When you have a lot to do, there's no time to waste. If you can use an empty block of time in a productive way, merge it into your schedule. From the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep, jam up your schedule with as much as you can so you're forced to stay busy, focused, and making progress. Make reaching goals faster and easier. Make it inevitable. The goal in getting your act together is making effective and useful thoughts, behaviors, and habits completely automatic so you don't have to constantly think about what you're doing. It's programming your Autonomic Nervous System with the effective and useful thoughts, behaviors, and habits you want to occur automatically and deprogramming your Autonomic Nervous System of the inefficient and useless thoughts, behaviors, and habits you don't want.

The Autonomic Nervous System takes care of breathing, blinking, and walking for you. If we had to think about these things as we did them, we'd be miserable! Fortunately, it's automatic for a reason and you can program your mind and Autonomic Nervous System to do the same with any thought, behavior, and habit. In contrast, when we allow time to pass by floating, we not only get lost within one of our distractions--we also weaken our mental muscles. Given that we are so incredibly comfortable when we float, it might be helpful to begin thinking of our diversions as insecurity blankets. We need to begin developing the will to change our long-held ways and beliefs about our tasks, and a good way to start this process is by learning to see the good in our tasks. In that way, we can work toward regaining the perspective we thought we had altogether lost. My heart raced like a team of wild horses galloping through a field, and it felt like the end of the world was upon me. Previously, I had tried to fight those panic attacks by staying in bed, steadfastly determined not to let them ruin my morning, but I could never get any sort of rest after suffering one. Those panic attacks came each and every Monday morning, except for three-day weekends, when of course, they'd arrive on Tuesday instead! What puzzled me most about them was why they arrived only after I had had a nice and relaxing weekend. They didn't seem related to my job, because I genuinely liked the office where I worked at the time, so it had to be something else. What could it be? For most young people, spending time online on many of the different social media platforms out there has become an essential part of staying in contact with friends and acquaintances from around the world. Along with Facebook and Twitter, they can also rely on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, YouTube, Reddit, and Pinterest, to name just a few. Not surprisingly, researchers have been taking a closer look at these different platforms and what their regular use can have on the emotions of people using them. What they have found suggests that, while social media can allow people to socialize with friends and family without ever leaving their homes, it can also make users feel more isolated than ever. Facebook, for example, has become a way of life for hundreds of millions of people who log on each day. Along with the free exchange of news, selfies, and whatever viral memes happen to be popular at the given moment, Facebook also allows for regular interactions among people who may never even meet in real life but who can still be considered friends. Three months before the Brexit vote, the World Happiness Report pointed out that inequality in well-being has a stronger negative impact on well-being than income inequalities and, as the New Economic Foundation pointed out, income inequality was not at all associated with voting to leave but well-being inequality was.

This supports the case that our subjective feelings about our life and the comparisons we make of it with that of others are a better predictor of whether people are dissatisfied and feeling left behind. We get angry when we are faced with inequality - and we are not alone: in fact, we are wired to react to inequality and injustice. If I had to do something other than my job, I would opt for Frans de Waal's job. He's a primatologist and studies the social behaviour of monkeys. His book Chimpanzee Politics argued that the roots of politics are older than humanity (although it seems that, in recent years, human politicians have become more likely to throw faeces at each other). However, his work also argues that we might be physically wired to react strongly to inequality. De Waal has studied how capuchin monkeys react to inequality by pairing them and having them both perform the same task - giving the researcher a stone. In return for the stone, the first monkey receives a piece of cucumber, is happy with that and so will go on handing the researcher stones in exchange for it - until the moment when it sees the second monkey get a grape, which monkeys prefer over cucumber, in exchange for the stone. Clear, focused, and purposeful thoughts, behaviors, and habits, when purposely repeated, program your Autonomic Nervous System and conscious thought, behavior, and habit restriction deprograms it. If you're a smoker, you programmed your Autonomic Nervous System to smoke because you purposely and repeatedly picked up and lit one cigarette after another. When you quit smoking, you're deprogramming your Autonomic Nervous System because you're purposely not picking up cigarettes and lighting them. You're reprogramming yourself not to smoke. Programming your Autonomic Nervous System allows you to engineer your ideal self and life. It allows you to be the architect of your results. It allows you to design what happens automatically in your life and what doesn't. The result is a calculated and well-designed mind that directs purposeful second-nature thoughts and behaviors and pushes you towards the life and habits you actually want. While those panic attacks came and went with each and every weekend, sadly, I couldn't come up with a reason for them. In fact, if you'd told me that scientists had discovered that people who suffer panic attacks each and every Monday morning also suffered from overexposure to gamma radiation from outer space, I probably would have searched for a clinic where I could get tested for it. Comical as that may sound, I would have gladly looked into almost anything that may have had the power to eliminate my own responsibility for setting up that cycle of procrastination; not to mention those feelings of depression, panic, and sad misfortune that came with it. Today, I view those Monday morning panic attacks that I formerly suffered from in a different light.

Because today, I know and understand that if I decided to place my hand above a stove's flame, I'd expect to feel intense pain. That's a pretty good reason not to put my hand above a flame, and so far, it's worked for me--and probably for you as well. As we all know, physical pain is just one of the many self-defense systems we've been equipped with by nature. That intense pain not only prevents us from continuing a hazardous activity that we've engaged in, it also serves to protect us in the future by preventing us from engaging in it again. In much the same way, I now recognize that the sort of physical pain that I'd expect to feel after placing my hand over a flame, is eerily similar to the mental anguish that comes from panic attacks and depression. In short, they're all self-defense warnings that my mind sends to alert me when I'm doing something wrong. And should I choose to engage in any of those activities, I'll more than likely pay a price for that decision, or indecision, as the case may be. Considering the power that Facebook and other platforms seem to have, it's probably not surprising that more and more anecdotes are emerging about the dark side of this kind of social contact. Stories of cyberbullying, mean-spirited comments, cyberstalking, and misunderstandings seem rampant, especially for young females dealing with unwanted attention. Despite efforts to curb the worst examples of this kind of abuse, the negative experiences, as described by many people, can have a powerful impact in terms of low self-esteem, depression, and social anxiety. It's probably also not surprising that new research is highlighting the effect that negative experiences on Facebook and other social media platforms can have on depression. One study published in 2013 looked at 264 young adults who were recruited to determine how the introduction of Facebook may have affected their emotional well-being, Along with examining the frequency, severity, and nature of the negative comments the research participants reported over time, they also completed measures of different depressive symptoms. What the researchers found was that 82 percent of all participants reported at least one negative Facebook experience overall and 55 percent reported one in the year before they took part in the study. About 63 percent said they had four or more such negative experiences. When compared to the 24 percent of participants reporting moderate- to-severe depression, overall risk of depression was 3.2 times greater in participants reporting negative experiences than those who had not. These results were particularly impressive, as it took other factors such as childhood mental health problems into account as well. The first monkey tries again, tests the rock this time by hitting it against the wall, hands it to the researcher and in return is again handed a piece of cucumber. Then the tantrum sets in. The monkey rattles the cage, pounds the floor and throws the cucumber back at the researcher. I once mentioned to my brother that we could test De Waal's findings by giving my youngest nephew two chocolate biscuits, then giving his older brother one.

Since then, for some reason, I have not been asked to babysit. The point of all this is that while we can improve trust levels in the short term by training our empathy muscles and teaching our kids to cooperate rather than compete, there is something we need to address in the long term to improve trust and happiness. And this is the understanding that my happiness also depends not only on how my family are but also on how my neighbours' children fare. It is honouring the noble principle that I am the keeper of my brothers and sisters - and they are mine. And it is judging our societies not by the success of those who finish first but how we lift back up those who fall. Put yourself in situations and create situations that force you to do what you're supposed to be doing and don't give you any other way out. Eben Pagan calls this the inevitability factor. It's to make it inevitable that the things that have to happen, will happen. That's there's no possible way they won't happen. That there's no possibility of you wiggling your way out of it. It's throwing your hat over the fence. If you have to climb and jump over a fence but you're not feeling motivated enough to do it, throw your hat over so you have to go get it. For me, throwing my hat over the fence was knowing if I wanted to be self-employed and take my business and life in the direction I wanted, I was going to have to suffer. I was going to have to put myself through a lot of pain so that my only options were to stand on a street corner with a sign or do what needed to be done in my business to keep a roof over my head and put food on the table. It took drastic measures to wake myself up, get out of my comfort zone, and get going. This meant making the deliberate decision not to get another job after I got fired from my last one. If I accepted another position or got another job, I would have been so comfortable that I would have used it as an excuse not to work hard to grow my business and get it to where it is now. But, I made it inevitable and struggled, starved, and went into debt. And you know what? Everyone hated me for it!
