The Joy Diet
The Joy Diet starts today. It is the latest book that the Next Chapter book blogging group is undertaking with the wonderful Jamie Ridler at the helm. I think we could all use a little more joy in our lives.
The book has ten ingredients for Joy
NOTHING: Do nothing for fifteen minutes a day. Stop
mindlessly chasing goals and figure out which goals are
worth going after.
TRUTH: Create a moment of truth to help you unmask what
you're hiding--from others and from yourself.
DESIRE: Identify, articulate, and explore at least one of
your heart's desires--and learn how to let yourself want
what you want.
CREATIVITY: Learn six new ways to develop at least one
new idea to help you obtain your heart's desire.
RISK: Take one baby step toward reaching your goal. The
only rule is it has to scare the pants off you.
TREATS: Give yourself a treat for every risk you take and
two treats just because you're you. No exceptions. No
PLAY: Take a moment to remember your real life's work and
differentiate it from the games you play to achieve it.
Then play wholeheartedly.
LAUGHTER: Laugh at least thirty times a day. Props
CONNECTION: Use your Joy Diet skills to interact with
someone who matters to you.
FEASTING: Enjoy at least three square feasts a day, with
or without food"
