Re Opening…. not quite yet, but soon.

Let’s keep positive folks, reflexology treatments will be given the go ahead soon I’m sure.

Let’s focus on boosting our sense of well-being with the high vibration of joy.

What is joy? How is it different from happiness?

This is a tricky one and I’m not sure I have the correct definition so please message me if you have a better one.

All I know is that when you feel joy your entire system seems to come alive and it is a feeling that nourishes you. Happiness is much more transient and can be switched off really quickly. The moments of pure joy that I have been lucky enough to enjoy are still in my system and I can tap into the feeling if I chose to.

What makes us joyful?

Singing, dancing, chatting with friends, walking on the moors or sitting by the sea, gardening, baking, lying in a field cloud watching, surfing, spending time with family, cuddling children, riding motorbikes, cheering your children on when they play sport or perform in a concert, watching sunrises or sunsets with people you love, the list goes on and on.

It is a wonderful thing to know that your joy can come from so many different sources and each person can access this life enhancing, health boosting feeling in their own ways.

What if you feel you have no joy?

If these recent times have left you feeling flat or you just can’t remember the last time you laughed, it is time to do something about it. Time to look at what makes you feel wonderful inside and plan to make this happen soon. You have it within your control to carry out this simple act. Recognise what makes you happy or joyous and make it happen. Make the phone calls, get your walking boots out, join a singing group, set your alarm for an early sunrise start, do what you need to and make it happen.

There are articles on the benefits of stimulating your happy hormones, how happiness contributes to good health and I was going to post some links here but instead it is most probably best if I just let you get on with finding your joy instead!

Good luck and much joy,

June xxxx
