Create More Joy in Your Day

Create More Joy in Your Day

There’s nothing better than when someone asks how your day was and you get to respond with “Fantastic!” and actually mean it.

We’ll never be able to control every annoyance or hiccup we encounter in our days, but there are several things we can do to create more joy.

Why it’s Time to Try Something New

How long has it been since you tried something new? 

Whether it’s walking into a new fitness class, signing up for language lessons, trying out a new hobby or activity, or even attempting to cook a new meal, breaking from routine and trying something new makes us come alive.
