10 Ways to Find Joy

Published on 4/29/2017
For additional information  Click Here

"You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living." ~Jon Krakauer


Some of these thoughts are reminders and others may be new concepts to think about. The point is we all have the power to inject a little more love and joy into our everday lives. 

1) Collect Something

The thrill and adventure is not in the things themselves but in the process and the journey of the hunt, the discovery,the arranging and rearranging of your new, old, or newly organized cherished things.


2) Do for Others

We all know that when we give, there is a good-inside feeling that we get when we have the opportunities to help or contribute.


3) Play

Did you know that MIT has a Lifelong Kindergarten Group Lab? Play does not end in childhood. We should all strive for outlets for play and/or creativity. Paint or color anyone?


4) Fix Broken Windows

This idea deals with the things we neglect that begin to seep into our unconscious and feed on our feelings of guilt and defeat. When we attack that “broken window,” laundry, sink of dirty dishes or stack of junk mail or other thing you’ve been putting off, it will give you a sense of order and well-being.


5) Mow your Lawn or Tend your Garden

It has been reported that both mowing your lawn and spending time in your garden can reduce stress. I know greenery makes me feel good. I love plants and being out in nature (very calming and peaceful).


6) Cold Showers

Researchers have suggested that spending time in showers with temps at about 68 (for a few minutes) can trigger neurotransmitters that produce a sense of well-being in the brain.


7) Laugh

We all know that laughter and joy go hand in hand. 


8) Appreciate the Little Things

And I’ll add to that by saying, appreciate EVERYTHING!


9) Stay Prepared

Organize and try to stay ahead of the game. When you are prepared and feel as if you have anticipated all there is, the more you will feel at ease, calm and ready for the world.


10) Pet your Pet

Pet your pet or anybody else’s pet that is happy, waiting and wanting. We know how much pleasure our little friends give us.


More joy, love and goodness can always be found here:


"Joy is not in things; it is in us."

-- Richard Wagner
