Bring Joy Into January
Apparently its blue Monday…..what a load of rubbish
It actually literally is nonsense. Supposedly, Blue Monday is the most miserable day of the year. Something to do with the weather, how much time has passed since Christmas and the fact that we are all skint because we bought to much as Christmas. Blue Monday was a PR stunt by sky travel back in 2005 in you believe everything the internet says.
But January is about joy for me, and as we are going against the grain this year and opting out of new years resolutions. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to drop in some work for #Boost2018, my year of permission, and those of you that are doing this too.
What is joy though? A feeling of great pleasure and happiness according to the dictionary. So therefore joy is completely personal. What makes you happy may not make me happy, that is just fine. In fact it is perfect, because we are different, individual, and unique.
So take some time out today on this blue Monday (Blue happens to be my favourite colour so not a problem for me!) and ask yourself what is joy for you?
Boosting your 2018
Each month this year as part of #Boost2018 I’m going to leave you with a few questions to ask yourself. To challenge you, to get you thinking. To get you on the path or giving yourself permission to be you. If you don’t know what I’m talking about go back and read it here.
#Boost2018 January Questions:
- What is joy to me?
- What makes me feel that way?
- Where do I feel it?
Over to you
You can download this handy PDF that will be available every month so you can print out and keep. This will be something lovely to come back and reflect on later. Let me know how you get on!
