10 Ways to be happy

Being happy is one of the most hardest things you’ll have to go through in this generation. Life was way simpler decades ago and everyone was happy without having the effort to stay happy. Here are ten ways to get started and bring happiness back to your life.

  1. Accept the things you can’t change. If you can and want to change them, do it. Nothing could stop you from what you want but don’t let the things that are impossible to change bring you down.
  2. Let go of the people who are holding you down. If you considered them, you already know who these people are. Remove negative, judging, fake and lazy people out of your life because they’ll be the reason of your failure and they’ll make you feel unmotivated all the time.
  3. Blast your favorite upbeat music and sing at the top of your lungs, dancing as you go. It’ll bring positivity around you and you’ll immediately feel happy and motivated.
  4. Go for a run. A nice, long run. Run until you feel good; at the very least, you’ll be tired enough that the feelings will seem less major. All your feelings and overthinking will be put on pause for a while which helps you bring peace to your mind.
  5. Call someone you love. Just hearing their voice could make your day better. They’ll tell you all you want to hear, whether it’s a friend or a family member, they’ll help you.
  6. Smile at a stranger. It will make both of you smile and also they’ll smile to other strangers and you’re going to be the reason why so many people are smiling which will bring you happiness as well.
  7. Send an anonymous compliment to someone. Either on social media or in real life, you’ll feel immediate peace, positivity and love. Give the love you would give to people who don’t deserve it to people who actually need it.
  8. Write down everything you don’t like about yourself. Rip it up, burn it. You’ll feel like they’re actually vanished and you’re someone else without these what you call, “imperfections”.
  9. Watch your favorite movie and eat ice cream. Movies and series actually help you rethink your life a little and you’ll feel a little more inspired than the usual. Also, they’ll pause your overthinking at the moment and it’ll increase your happy meter level.
  10. Realize that you are your own biggest critic. People do not see the faults in yourself that you do. So realize that they are not faults, not imperfections. They make you, you.ل

Constant efforts have been exerted the past years to limit and reduce the single use plastic bags. From awareness campaigns to countless initiatives, Egypt has seen a great progress environmentally and now another leap has been made with the issuing of a waste management law!

The law will regulate the free plastic bag at retail and limit the single use plastic bags imports and exports. This is an attempt to regulate the disposal of plastic wastes in Egypt and enhances Egypt’s waste handling and recycling processes.

According to a statement from Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad, a new state agency will handle Egypt’s waste management challenges after President Abdel Fattah El Sisi signed into law a bill that would regulate the industry. Moreover, in doing so and implementing such strategies, it’s expected that the move will attract foreign investment in Egypt’s waste management. 

The bill also includes investment incentives as well as other measures to encourage garbage collectors, small companies, private contractors, and recycling centers to join the formal economy.

Also worth mentioning is that International Cooperation Minister, Rania Mashat has recently just announced two impressive partnerships with the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, which will implement a 200-million-dollar project for improving the quality of air to combat climate change and reduce has emissions in Cairo.

This comes as a great stride to end plastic waste in Egypt that has long been a great issue facing our community.

Abayazied Brings ‘Wain A’Ramallah’ Back To Life

The release of Abayazied’s new cover brings forth a new modern take on Palestinian folk sensation ‘Wain A’Ramallah’.

When it came to his approach to covering, Abayazied said he didn’t want to transform it to fit his own idea by stripping it of what made it stand out, but instead he wanted to take inspiration from genres such as rap and hip-hop and use them as influence to highlight the beauty of ‘Wain A’Ramallah’ with a modern spin.

Through the combined effort of a team who took this on as a passion project, they managed to achieve this and it’s already creating major waves, famed Palestinian radio channel ‘Ajyal’ even approached the artist and asked to play the new tune to it’s listeners!

To Abayazied, one of the aspects he enjoyed the most working on this project was the teamwork. The love behind the collaboration in this song was purely off the love of this song and the rich history it carried. The contributions by Disco Misr’s ‘Mostafa El Sherif’ in his great effort and help with the production eased the difficulties they faced, coupled with his creative input which played around with the elements of the song to unleash the powerful soul within it.

Equally as important was the music video which thanks to the team behind it, were able to capture the elements that Abayazied believed resonated with the current modern day spirit. Abayazied praised the work of the team crediting Moataz Ibrahim and the team with the remarkable work they did with the video. The friendship and love behind this project ultimately made this an unforgettable experience for him and those who collaborated on the song.

Abayazied believes that when it comes to the purpose behind working on specific projects that there are times when you feel you don’t have the privilege of choosing what you want to work on. When you feel like you want to sing it, you suddenly feel its influence on you and that you want to sing it again in a new and unique way. “I felt it, I loved it and I felt really happy to sing it once more, and ultimately I wanted to share it and add one more take to this beautiful song”.

The unique memories he had with the song meant that he couldn’t help it considering how it was his all time favorite during his years in college. He felt that the way he would approach singing it would be unique and was different from how anyone else tried to cover this track. Feeling this, he jumped at the opportunity. Saying that his hope for people to enjoy it, because his desire to spread it out and to give it the exposure it deserves to a younger audience considering that it has a large potential that deserves to be fulfilled. “When it comes to ‘Wain A’Ramallah’ however you arrange it you would find something beautiful within it”.

In terms of his previous collaborations and projects, he hopes that what he’s learned from those experiences have manifested in this project. The collaborations of the past have taught him many things that he feels he will be able to capitalize on. This experience has brought out a greater enthusiasm to make more collaborations in the future. Abayazied has found that the influence of the artists he’s worked with have had a profound effect on his evolving style and allow it to grow in new and unique ways. As time goes on “I want to take these experiences and try this with more local artists and develop my style as time goes on”.

Ahmed Abayazied’s optimistic and growth centric mind promises to take lessons from the past and bring about a new spirit to the local musical scene that sees the potential in the art of the past and yearns to modernize it for the present. And with an array of popular covers in the pipe-line, Abayazied is also currently working on his first solo album which is set to take the music scene by storm.
