Joy is an emotion so what can you do to add joy in your life? Emotions are pure physical sensations in our bodies. We express the feelings of joy in many physical ways some examples are; we jump for joy when we win a hard-won competition. We squeal with delight after getting a surprise gift and whoop and holler exuberantly when we hear fantastic news. When someone tells us a hilarious story, we double over in uncontrollable laughter, all examples of joy.
When we feel joy, we feel great about ourselves; we feel confident, powerful, capable, lovable and fulfilled. What’s not to love when one feels this way here are several ways that you can get and keep this feeling, let’s look at several.
Actively seek joy through inspiration.
Explore activities that stretch your perceptions and take you out of your ordinary day to day life. Engage in meditation and prayer they both produce a feeling of well-being and serenity. Being alone in nature is another way to feel the joy of beauty.
Engage in an activity that’s pleasurable and feels like play.
Do an uplifting and enjoyable event that’s not goal oriented, but just plain fun. A few examples dancing, hiking, enjoying a concert, looking at beautiful art and any hobby that you thoroughly enjoy.
Honor yourself consciously and frequently.
Joy does not come from others it comes only from within. Interrupt negative thoughts about yourself and replace them with statements that praise you such as; I did my best, I am whole and complete, I am fine the way I am, what I am seeking is within me. Write down self-appreciations so that you can read and say them frequently. The more you reinforce these concepts, the more the will become reality.
Give yourself a break from the day-to-day world.
Learn to nurture yourself joy comes easy when you can learn to focus on your needs in a loving and caring way. Get a massage, take a nap take the time to make you feel and look good. When you do these types of activities will replenish you and give your body and soul a chance to feel pure joy. Disconnect and get away from the noise and stimulation that takes its demands on you and diminishes your pleasure.
Make time for others being kind to others makes you feel good. A joyful existence is one that involves empathy and love. Sending out kind vibes to others will pay dividends in the joy department later on. When you create feelings of gratitude, you change the feeling in your heart. Simply think what effect is having a heart bursting with gratitude can have on your mind and body and what joy it can bring into your life.
Until the next time, take good care and be well.
