22 Nov Flourish: How to Become a More Joyful Person
Imagine going through each day of your life significantly happier than you are right now. Imagine your light shining more brightly to others.
I’m so excited to tell you about my new book that’s just been released: Retrain Your Brain for Joy – 31 Mini-Adventures. It’s a perfect gift to give yourself and others on your list this holiday season — the gift of learning to experience more joy every day!
As a counselor, I’ve been helping people for many years learn to experience consistent joy. In my own journey, during several years of severely debilitating chronic illness, it was an utter necessity to learn authentic positivity amidst continual physical and emotional pain — what the Apostle Paul wrote about in 1 Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18 and Philippians 4: 8. In this book, I’m revealing the practices and principles I’ve discovered to be the most effective.
Flourish: You Can Learn to Be More Joyful As a Way of Life
Wherever you are in life – whether facing major difficulties or minimal obstacles, you can train your brain to experience greater joy and fulfillment. Research tells us that it takes a month of daily practice to acquire a new habit. Retrain Your Brain for Joy gives you 31 mini-adventures that are easily incorporated into your busy day, while transforming your mindset into a joyful new reality that overflows into everything you do.
As you experience this 31-day adventure, it will be like playing a game throughout your day, creating a secret inner life that keeps you smiling inwardly, even through mundane tasks. Along the way, you’re transforming your mindset and creating new lifelong habits.
This book is ideal for individuals, couples, families, or groups. Here’s one of the daily mini-adventures you’ll embark upon. Notice how simple it is to incorporate into your day.
Day 4: Good News!
Like cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a distance land (Proverbs 25:25 NASB).
Good news is everywhere if you look for it. Positive, unexpected things happen to you, both small and large: you hear good news about a friend, you receive an unexpected email, or something pleasant happens in your family or community. Amazingly, good news can even be found on TV or in the newspaper! Throughout this day, make it your goal to notice good news: positive information that you didn’t previously know. And remember, nothing is too small to rejoice about. When possible, tell someone. And of course, record each item in your journal to enhance your joy!
Flourish: In 2015
Let’s all make 2015 a powerfully positive, joyful year for ourselves and those around us!
