Did you know that joy actually makes you healthier? Studies show that happier people are more likely to live a healthy lifestyle, have stronger immune systems, and do a better job of dealing with stress!
That’s why it is so important to be kind to yourself on a daily basis. Implementing practices that boost your joy is about more than just a happy feeling. It’s about a healthy body, mind, and soul.
Don’t get me wrong—I haven’t mastered the art of intentional joy. But I work on it regularly because I know the difference it makes in my life!
If you need a little boost of joy in your day today, here are a few things you can try:
🌳 Get outside. Take a big, deep breath of fresh air. Express gratitude for that beautiful breath in your lungs.
🚶🏻♀️Move your body. Go for a walk, do some stretches, or stand up and do a few jumping jacks right now! Get your blood flowing and thank your body for carrying you through your day.
😄 Choose to smile... whether you feel like it or not! Even faking a smile can elevate your mood, lower your heart rate, and reduce your stress because it sends a message to your brain that says, “we’re happy!”
📲 Send an encouraging text message! Lift your own spirits by uplifting others!
