Joy is not an indulgence, it’s a necessity. Without it we render ourselves vulnerable to depression and burnout as well as our ability to connect and be of use to the wider world.
Think of each day as a blank canvas and try to fill it with things that uplift you. Look for beauty because joy is never far behind it – whether it’s a spider’s web, an art gallery or the rhythm of falling rain. Notice the things that make you laugh and lift your spirits. Give yourself permission to have more of what enthuses and impassions your life.
