Joy and Appreciation

Joy and Appreciation

January 2019

Do you allow joy and appreciation in your life or do you get caught up in what you see and wish could be different? This month’s exercise is a simple and effective way to practice more joy in your life. It gently increases caring and nourishment of the emotional experience of your life. This is an important life skill that most are taught.

At each moment or segment of our day we can focus on the mundane or we can revel in the magnificence of our life. We are taught from a young age to “be real” and deal with “what is”. Unfortunately, this often translates with modern media and authoritative directions to focus on the ordinary and sometimes boring or even distressing aspects of life.

As you progress through your day, take frequent breaks and ask yourself these questions on joy and appreciation and see what it brings to your life:

What do I appreciate today?  Name two things that bring joy to my heart now!

If you or someone you know tends to focus on the negative aspects around them ask them for one or two positive things happening now. This will break their or our patterns and instill a breath of new thought to refresh and change our experience in the moment. What we focus on is what we see more of in our life. Simply focusing on the things we appreciate around and in our life can change the quality of our life in big ways.

Try it for the next thirty days and see what it brings to you. Have abundant joy and appreciation.

In loving service, Dr. Zaida Rivene
