Joy Breaks

Finding Joy & Happiness Among the Daily Rush

Do you take a “Joy Break”? aka Taking a brief moment for yourself to smile, laugh, find your happy place, etc!

One needs that reprieve as well as that release when the mind is racing and the body is rushing about! Being constantly in the “on” position is not good. You are able to pause to reset as well as recharge to restart again. Think about a mini dose of nurturing and nourishing for your whole, well being! 

When you feel on “over” or the world seems to be speeding by BECOME PRESENT! Find the peace and calm by becoming grounded. Find the pleasure and joy by becoming centered. Bring your attention and awareness within yourself and your being! 

Really focus in on what you love to do and make the time to do it! Even if it is just for 5 minutes. Let your mind go and maybe even tap into your creative being. Do what is best for you and your whole, well being!

It is the small things that you do for yourself that matters the most! Especially in taking the time to make space for you. I ask myself every once in a while, “Am I surviving, thriving or actually living?”! We are all going through the motions and the moments, however; do not lose yourself. Remember to journey on, read the next paragraph, turn the page, start a new chapter . . .

Joy

Sweet Joy

Joy:  a cause or source of great happiness; giving joy.

I am loved . . .

Loving myself and my whole being and being loved are my two greatest gifts in my life! There is love and kindness as well as care and support from myself and my greatest someone(s). I am learning to be more mindful and be more in the present moment. I appreciate and I am grateful for the love I give and receive!

I am blessed . . .

In being blessed in what I do have, I am doing more of what I love to do! It gives me inspiration and gets me motivated. I take at least 5 minutes to reflect at the end of the day on my blessings and what I am thankful for in my life. I also take time in my reflections to release and let go of what I no longer need or want. It is such a freeing process and refreshes and reenergizes me!

Joy:  a feeling of great happiness.

I feel . . .

Feeling good makes me and my whole being happy and joyful! It is about communicating and interacting with myself and others. It is about connecting and engaging with my whole being as well as my emotions, my feelings and my thoughts. I am so lucky and very blessed in loving and living my life each and every day!

Joy:  success in finding, doing or getting something.

I am honest and truthful about . . .

I am listening to myself, following my heart and trusting my gut! I am trying to not get stuck in my head and having my mind and heart do battle with one another. I am learning to come from a place of love each and every day. It is about being in the present and sticking to what I know to be true in living my life!

I am strong, alive and enthusiastic . . .

I want and need to:

  • Conquer Today.
  • Discover My Strong.
  • Do What I Love.
  • Be In the Moment.
  • Get Out There and Gain Experiences.

In The End It Is About . . .

  • Getting back to the simple life.
  • Celebrating life in general each and every day.
  • Inspiration and motivation to get moving and going throughout the day.
