Our brains are wonderous things. Your brain keeps your body moving and your organs working, all while housing all the thoughts and emotions of our everyday lives. Sometimes our brains gets sad, leading to depression or just a general sense of unease. But why do our brains work that way?

This cartoon from Dr. Amit Sood of the Mayo Clinic and the Global Center for Resiliency and Wellbeing takes a look at the different ways our brains interpret outside stimulation. From feeling other's pain as our own to interpreting emotional pain the same way we feel physical pain, this video might just help you realize that while your sadness is real there could be outside factors affecting it.

If you've ever woken up searching for a little extra happiness in your day, Dr. Sood's lesson may just be the motivation you've been looking for. Get happy.
