Finding some Joy~ suggestions

It’s been grey in NYC. dievca has tried to find a bit of sunshine to get through the day. Her Zadig & Voltaire “Amour” Sweater has been pulled out and put to use:

 

But, she needs more…

Here’s where she is going, maybe a couple of suggestions will speak to you:

  • Talk to kids.
  • Play with kids.
  • Play like a kid.
  • Learn something new (play a new sport or game, learn how to cook a new dish).
  • Get outside, visit nature.
  • Breathe Deep.
  • Smell a Rose.
  • Help someone in a small way (by carrying their groceries or help them up the stairs).
  • Wear a favorite outfit.
  • Spend time with your pet.
  • Travel.
  • Nurture romance (spend time just kissing your partner, buy a surprise gift, write a love letter).
  • Lose yourself in a great book.
  • Laugh and smile, no matter how you’re feeling.
  • Sing out loud.
  • Connect authentically with friends and family, sharing your vulnerabilities and happiness.
  • Dance. If you can’t dance, just skip, gallop or run.
  • Look around your World and appreciate it.
  • Pay a compliment to a total stranger.
  • Listen to “feel good” music.
  • Serve others. Volunteer.
  • Exercise.
  • Set a goal, then work to reach it.
  • Enjoy the silence.
  • Write a thank you letter or call someone for no particular reason other than just to say “I appreciate you.”
  • Get messy (go barefoot, play in the sand).
  • Eat a healthy meal.
  • Offer to teach someone a new skill.
  • Read a poem.
  • Turn your errands into an adventure  (make a game out of finding the shortest route through the store or spotting a VW bug while driving there).
  • Take a nap in the sun.
  • Ask someone for help and appreciate their sharing.
  • Watch a favorite old movie for the hundredth time.
  • Discover a new smell.
  • Cuddle.
  • Get rid of stuff. (Give to friends/family, resell, and donate – lightening your load and making someone else’s life better.)
  • Watch a sunrise or sunset.
  • Make a commitment to change a bad habit, then do it.
  • Create something.
  • Eat a cupcake.
  • Spend an evening by candlelight.
  • Take a walk in the rain.
