Hi everyone,

Need a pick-me-up? Check out the new TIME Guide To Happiness, packed with science-backed tips for how to get happier at home, at work and in life. It's fortuitous timing, since there's also plenty to be happy and hopeful about in health news.

Take the case of Judy Slater, a 59-year-old grandmother who became the first person to undergo deep brain stimulation for stroke disability. This week, we learned she's doing far better than doctors anticipated. Or Kaitlyn Johnson, a 7-year-old girl who underwent an experimental gene therapy for leukemia and is now headed to summer camp free of cancer. These happy occasions are pushing potentially life-changing science forward.

How do you stay happy throughout the week? We'd love to hear from you at health@time.com.

Be well,
