Here are ten quick tips for creating more joy in your life. It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of your day and leave your joy behind.
Because it’s sooo easy to drift across the line without even realizing it – until it’s too late. Watch the video on what happens when you cross the joy line – here.
One day turns into two… which turns into ten… which turns into a month… and before you know it… another year has gone by with little joy in it.
Does it matter? I believe it does. Because if you’re not living a joy-filled life…
What DO you have?
Maybe print these out on 3×5 cards and refer to a different one each day – several times per day. The key part in this is how frequently you remind yourself to check which side of the joy line you’re on.
Do it. You are worth it.
Source, also known by many other names, does not judge you. Source adores you – just as you are. So stop judging yourself so harshly. Love yourself more – just as you are. Judging others doesn’t work. It certainly doesn’t bring you joy. Give it up.
Joy and stress are mutually exclusive. When you’re stressed, you’ve left your joy behind.
When you’re in the joy zone, stress disappears. Joy it up!
There is no value in being serious. It is an anchor that weighs you down. Cut it loose!
Don’t take what others say personally. You’re giving away your power. Thank others for their opinions – no matter how absurd.
Worry is learned behavior. It is not natural, normal, nor necessary. There is zero benefit in worry. So why do it? Give it up.
Eliminate “must”, “should”, “have to”, and anything similar from your vocabulary. Because you always have a choice.
Leave yesterday behind. Before you even open your eyes in the morning, set forth your intention for greater joy that day. Bring forth from yesterday only those things that bring you joy. Leave the rest behind.
Appreciate others more – especially those who push your buttons. You don’t have to hang out with them, but realize others only mirror what you believe back to you. It is a gift!
Stop multiple times throughout your day to FEEL how you feel in that moment. How you feel is your inner guidance, a.k.a. intuition or gut feeling. Pay attention to it and change thoughts that don’t feel good to ones that do.
