5 Ways to Spark Joy in Your Life

Today we are celebrating the beautiful connection that creates joy in our life. No matter where you find joy in your life, we believe in the truly human desire to build a healthy and happy life through connection, self-care and creating meaning every day. 

Real Joy Versus Happiness

According to Psychologies.UK.co,  joy and happiness are intrinsically different emotions, but both feelings of personal peace. Joy is an internal feeling and connection to the heart; happiness is an external pursuit that connects to the brain's pleasure centres. Happiness ebbs and flows, while joy relates to enduring trials and difficult times with meaning and purpose. According to Psychologies.UK.co, “a person pursues happiness, but seeks joy.”

Finding Things That Spark Joy

Creating moments to welcome joy is important for leading a more fulfilling and purposeful life. Our top recommendations for creating joy in your life include:

  1. Using mediation to open your heart and mind to joy. Meditation quietens your mind and opens your heart to your true purpose. Being able to recognize and accept joy into your life is the first step in leading a more joyful life, and meditation can help with that. 
  2. Cutting down on things that create artificial experiences of joy. Television, social media, and online shopping might all appear to bring joy and value to your life, but they can only clutter your mind and bring disconnect to your life. Spending time together with the ones you love is a great way to create this sense of connection a purpose. Preparing a meal, spending time outdoors or even sharing a SuperFruit Freezie with your family are all great ways to take time out of the hustle and bustle and reconnect. 
  3. Reflecting, reflecting, reflecting. Once you have decided to welcome joy into your life, it is essential to reflect and express gratitude. We recommend keeping a journal to reflect on your experiences, practice gratitude and express your intentions for your life. 

How Our Founder Dr. Dionne Finds Joy in Her Life

To learn more about joy, we sat down with our founder Dr. Dionne Laslo-Baker about how she finds joy in her life. “Creating a business that not only provides for my family but also creates a connection to our communities brings me joy,” Dr. Dionne explains. “I am guided by a sense of purpose in what I do, which brings me a deep feeling of fulfilment and joy whenever I explore that purpose.”

In addition to her work, Dr. Dionne also shares how her family, meditation, personal development and exploration and a connection to her community all bring her joy.
