Joy is a state of being. Not something that comes and goes based on circumstances.
Being in a state of joy can boost your immune system, promote a healthier lifestyle, fight stress and pain, and support longevity.
How do you find more joy? Here are a few ideas:
1 - You can trick your brain into it by just smiling.
2 - Exercise!
3 - Walking in nature.
4 - Hugging a loved one.
The trick is to do these things regularly to set a baseline of joy. Reminder, mood follow action. Not the other way around. So you can’t wait to be in the mood to do these things. You do them first…or regularly…and the mood follows!
