5 Ways for Changemakers to Cultivate Vital Joy

Joy isn’t a luxury for changemakers…it’s a necessity. 

As people deeply concerned with the state of the world, creating joy can seem like the LAST thing we have time for.

But that thinking is a BIG mistake.

The thing is, joy is like FUEL for changemakers and our missions. It’s a revitalizing and expansive energy that relaxes and lights us up. Pleasure, delight, enjoyment helps strengthen our creativity and influence, so we can move mountains.

Joy is also profoundly healing. Studies show that laughter decreases pain, increases energy, boosts the immune system, and even reduces food cravings.

Lucky for us, joy is also the GOOD kind of contagious. It inspires exuberance and openheartedness in others, which is just the recipe for helping transform this world.

However, joy doesn’t just happen. Just like a muscle, you need to work it regularly for it to be strong.

Joy requires PRACTICE. 

In this workshop of The Changemaker Sessions, you’ll explore how stoke joy in yourself, your work, and a world that can sometimes feel very dark.

You’ll work learn joy-building techniques like having a “joy arsenal”, observing mini-celebrations, adding joy to your “to do” list, and the idea of “quiet joy” for those who are going through harder times.

I’ll also take you through an experiential exercise to really hit home the power of joy.

Watch the Workshop below to put a little a little spring in your step! 😉
