Find Joy And Fulfillment Through Great Activities-face gossip

UnCategorized I hope you are enjoying summer fun and spending quality time with family and friends. I love to do things that make me feel like a kid again. When school lets out for the summer, it feels like time for me to begin summer vacation as well. Do you feel that way? I remember going to the pool, eating frozen candy bars, hanging out with my girlfriends and dreaming about what I wanted to do when I grew up. Even though I don’t sun bathe anymore, I still eat the occasional (non-frozen) candy bar, hang with my women friends and still dream almost every day about my future. Some things never change. I know that finding my balance and peace and joy are still tops on my to-do list. How is your joy level measuring up these days? Are you happy with your life and all it has to offer? If you are not feeling joyful, do something about it right now. When you woke up this morning did you begin your day with thanks and appreciation for what you have and who you are? I just became a grandparent again for the 6th and 7th time, and all seven are granddaughters. What a blessing. They are identical twins but each is uniquely special with her own personality and temperament, and each already knows what makes her feel safe and secure. Remind yourself how special you are–and how unique–and that there is no one like you in the whole wide world. What gives you joy? Is it a place, a person, an experience or something that you can smell, taste, and touch? If you have forgotten some of these things, bring them to mind–a walk on the beach, your friend’s great sense of humor, or the taste of those great chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven. Remember and close your eyes and now all those experiences are yours and no one can take them away. One of the guest authors I interviewed recently told me she makes sure that each person she works with has a plan to be empowered and full of promise. She helps women know they have the ability to create the world they want and deserve. "Deserve" is an important word that women need to understand. It means you have a right to have a life full of joy, happiness, and to feel safe and secure. You deserve joy in your life. If you can’t even remember what gives you pleasure, which many women cannot, here are some ideas to jump-start your search for joy. There’s a Zen-like satisfaction in doing necessary tasks with love and attention: cleaning, cooking, washing dishes, ironing (remember that?) and sewing. Exercise is always a mood builder. Have you tried jogging, weight machines, walking, aerobic dancing or workouts, stretching, yoga or weightlifting. Don’t you LOVE to eat? Try making food for yourself and others by baking, barbecuing, preparing gourmet meals or just shopping for food. Like to play games? Try bridge, board games, jigsaw puzzles, poker, Pinochle, Scrabble, crosswords or anagrams. Are you a scribbler? Try your hand at cartooning, drawing, lettering, painting, photography or silkscreening. Crafty people enjoy basket making, bookbinding, crocheting, embroidery, knitting, leatherwork, dressmaking and needlepoint. Laughing brings a rush of wellbeing, so try improvisation games, charades, telling jokes, doing practical jokes and pranks and punning. Get outside for birdwatching, gardening, crabbing, fishing, canoeing, sailing, hunting, walking, ice skating, skiing, rowing or hiking. If you prefer indoor performance, try dancing, mime, acting, storytelling or singing. Maybe working on your personal growth pumps you up. Try self-help books, workshops, lectures, learning new skills or working on developing your career. Curl up with a book: fiction, non fiction, novels, plays or poems. Or vent your feelings (always a great idea!): punch a pillow, yell, talk, write, express your good feelings. Socialize by conversing, attending or giving parties, watching movies, plays, sports or pageants. Take a kid to the circus! How about a sport? Did you enjoy something as a child? There’s baseball, basketball, golf, gym, football, hockey, dancing, tennis, skating, running or volleyball. Expand your brain power by studying art, history, a language, math, music, science or the social sciences. Does your work bring you joy? Expand your mind to new possibilities. How about becoming a bricklayer, builder, carpenter, doctor, foreman, factory worker, gardener, mechanic, machinist or police officer? You will never know how happy you can be until you find the things that bring you joy. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
