Joy List

gratitude health and wellness joy mental health May 31, 2020

Do you know what brings you joy? Do you have a list of these things? A list that you can reference at any time when you need a little pick me up? A list of things guarenteed to bring a smile to your face or some warmth to your soul?

We all could use a little more joy in our life. I encourage you this week to create a list, (yes, write it down) of all the things that bring you joy; big and small. Put the list in a place where you can reference it at any time. Here are a few things that are on my joy list:

  • My record player
  • Grandma's chair
  • Soft lighting
  • Hot cups of coffee
  • A glorious glass of wine
  • The sound of birds
  • A good book
  • Easy runs with the family
  • The end of a challenging run
  • Genuine laughter
  • Alex snuggling with me
  • Hot showers
  • Coloring
  • The smell of lilacs
  • Sunrises
  • Family dance parties
  • Singing at the top of my lungs
  • Sitting by a bonfire
  • Hearing Ella say, "I love you, Mama."
  • Kisses from Adalyn
  • Date nights
  • Snowboarding
  • Skydiving
  • Client success
  • Helping others

Some things are not attainable right now, however most of them are. I encourage you to make your own list and choose one when you need a little joy in your life. You deserve to be happy and you deserve joy, even during a pandemic.
