So, today for lesson one.
Day 2 will include a guided meditation and thoughts on your rhythm and natural flow!
How was day one? Did you write out your list of joyful things? What were you grateful for this morning? Yes, comment below and tell me!
Today we’re going to go deeper into thinking about how our energy flows throughout the day and what your ideal/dream day would look like.
Day 3 we’ll talk about getting to know yourself even more!
Okay, did you picture your ideal day? Do you have an idea on how your energy flows through the day? Share with me what you’ve learned! Hit reply, I would be delighted!
Today we’re going to talk about the value in finding out more about your personality type and how you operate!
Day 4, we’ll talk about saying NO! Yes. We will. And about honestly pruning your life to remove what is not bringing you joy
Today’s lesson can be both a YES! kind of lesson and a “oh, but wait, that’s too hard” kind of thing! Culling out the things in your life that are not making you happy can be HUGE and can be simple. But, we only have so much time and energy each day and if we commit to all the things, we won’t have space for what matters.
So, let’s begin!
First mark all the the things on your list that excite you. Things you love doing and that are clear yeses.
Next, give the list a critical view and cross off everything that doesn’t really need to be done and that can easily be culled away.
Then, look at what’s left and determine what does not in fact need to be done by YOU! Be really honest about this and find ways to delegate or hire out these things. (ideas in the audio!)
Finally, turn a really critical eye to what’s left. The things that you don’t really want to do, but that you feel you have to. Do you REALLY have to? Is there another way to accomplish what this task does? Can it be cut anyway? What story do you have in your mind about what it means about you if you don’t do this? Saying no, opens your life up to what you are meant to be doing and how you can stay in joy and ease.
Tomorrow, we’ll get out our calendars and start to pull some of things we’re learning about ourselves together!
Comment below and tell me what you are no longer doing!
So…you’ve made a list of what brings you joy and you’ve been practicing some gratitude every day!
You’ve thought about your energy flow throughout the day and what your ideal day would look like. You took some tests, read some things and you know yourself and how you operate in flow a bit more.
Then you got clear on the habits and commitments in your life that do not bring you ease and joy and determined what of those you want to cull, delegate or limit.
NOW…we’re bringing it all together with our calendars and starting to put some JOY into place. Scheduling it first. Allowing life to flow around the most important things to us.
Create a list for daily things, weekly things, monthly things and quarterly/yearly things. These are the things you want to ensure are part of your rhytym. Things like walking, meditating, visiting an art museum, sitting in front of your watercolor paper, live music, a solo adventure, cermonies…you get the idea. Things that will inherently bringing connection and joy into your life.
Now, schedule them!!! Put them in first and honor that commitment to yourself. After all as Dr Edith Egar says, the only person that you will be in a relationship with for your entire life, is YOU!
Check out the Blue Zones when you’ve got a moment.
This simple process is the single most important way that I’ve added more joy and contentment into my life. And it’s something I come back to again and again.
And to take these concepts and fully embody them (and continue to grow and expand) the Embody Your Joy membership is kicking off in September.
You can join now, before we close the doors to settle in and begin!
In this gathering, we’ll start to do the things we know make us happy, not just learn about them.
We’ll also have…
