Choose joyfulness every day.
You probably had someone wish you “a joyful New Year”.
That’s a nice sentiment, but it won’t happen by someone wishing it for you.
Or even wishing it for yourself. You have to choose it.
I was reminded of this by watching a Sadhguru video early this morning. If you are a YouTube fan, you may know of him. I find him relatable and practical.
One of his teachings is about joyfulness.
Before I encountered his teaching on joyfulness, I would have said to myself that to aspire to ‘joy’ as a constant would be over the top. Not realistic. An irritating idea. Certainly not an expectation I would have for every day. I’d settle for contentment or satisfaction or peace. But joyfulness? Not likely. And I would have been wrong!
In ‘Five Life Hacks for 2020′, the first hack is how to create joyfulness every day.
It occurred to me as a perfect New Years’ challenge.
Here’s the simple practice…
Start every day start with a question.
” Shall I be miserable or joyful? “
If you choose to be ‘joyful’, you may notice that you feel lighter,
brighter, and more optimistic right away.
Now do it every morning:)
Let’s create a joyful new year!
Sadhguru talks about creating joyfulness. Start at 0.30. You may have to drag it back.
