8 Tips for Experiencing More JOY
1. Get Out in Nature
Preferably someplace beautiful, into the woods, and where you can be alone or still.
2. Practice Deep Breathing
Breath in 4 counts, pause, breath out six counts. Repeat.
3. Practice Gratitude
Focussing on what is good in your life is the foundation for feeling joy.
4. Get Your Heart Pumping
Pushing your body releases all kinds of yummy chemicals in your brain that bring on feel good feelings.
5. Listen to Happy Music
Turn on tunes and dance around.
6. Undertake a New Challenge and then Master It
Nothing feels better than a job well done, this can be a simple thing, like tackling that closet organization or a major project at work.
Write a list of play you loved as a child, love to do now, or think you might love. Do something from this list a few times each week.
8. Give Something
Give your time or money to a cause you feel passionately about, give a gift from the heart to a loved one or give smiles to strangers. It all feels good.
