I’m not a fan of posts that promise to teach you 5 ways to a flat belly or 10 things you must do to prevent your souffle from falling, but I do love a good A-Z. So I’ve been working on an ABC of Tiny Steps Toward Joy and wanted to share it with you! Please let me know if you try one (or more). They take very little time and can add up to a more joyful day.
A ALLOW for fun
B Take 3 deep BREATHS
C COLOR a temporary stripe in your hair
D DANCE to your favorite song
E EAT something delicious and savor it!
F FEED the birds (and squirrels)
G Get GLITTER GEL PENS (and use them to write letters or checks with!)
H HUG yourself really tightly and tell yourself “I LOVE YOU!”
I Ask your INTUITION what you should do
J JOURNAL for 5 minutes
K KISS your loved one, your kids, your pet, or your knee
M Watch the MOON
N Notice something in NATURE
O Chant “OM” in your car
P Put on some PERFUME that you love
Q Be very, very QUIET
R Draw a RAINBOW
S Display some SUNFLOWERS
T Paint your TOENAILS crazy colors
U Wear your favorite UNDERWEAR
V VIEW a sunset
W WRITE a letter to a loved one
X eXAMINE your fears and let them go
Y YAWN really loudly
Z Get some ZINNIAS
I’d love to talk with you about what brings you joy and how you include it in your life.
If you’re ready for more JOY and are having a hard time getting started, contact me for a complimentary 1 hour session!
