By reflecting on what brings you joy and what drains you, you can create opportunities for more joy in your life.
Joy, by definition, is ‘a feeling of great pleasure and happiness’. By making room for joy in your everyday life and reducing things that drain you, you can minimise their impact on you.
The life of leaders who work with our society’s most disadvantaged and marginalised people is often one lived in a state of survival. As you can imagine, the concept of joy is very far away from their mind.
Bringing more joy into your life, even if it is small moments of joy everyday, makes us feel more motivated, less overwhelmed, more creative and more able to respond to challenges. Don’t believe us? Most people don’t until they give it a go.
