Joy can be defined as "a feeling of great pleasure and happiness." People find joy in multiple ways: spiritually, economically, physically, mentally, etc. Here are some ways that you can instantly bring joy into your household, without spending money!
Let There Be Light
Open the blinds and curtains Doing this as soon as you wake up will bring in natural light that you can enjoy throughout the day.
Clean windows and mirrors Even if you clean windows one day and mirrors the next, this quick fix will help make your home just a little nicer.
Change your sheets and make your bed Making your bed as soon as you wake up can bring a little more joy to your room! Clean sheets feel wonderful at the end of the day when you are ready to sleep.
Clean out your refrigerator Take time to take everything out of the fridge, wipe down the walls and shelves, and throw out expired food. This could inspire you to make a new meal or a family favorite!
Let Joy Fill Your Home
Play your favorite songs Let the music fill your home! If you live with multiple people and you have different tastes of music, put headphones in your ears and jam out!
Open your windows and bring in fresh air With weather permitting of course. Even if this is for 10 minutes, it allows you home to have a breath of fresh air!
Don't Forget Yourself
Stretch for 10 minutes As soon as you wake up in the morning, take a few minutes to stretch your arms and legs. This will help get the body moving and ready for the day.
Pray and meditate This can range from 30 seconds to 15 minutes. Take time to get in touch with your spirituality.
Call a friend or family member Notice, "text message" was written. Even if the phone call is 5 minutes, just hearing another person's voice that you know can do wonders.
Smile more Sure, there are days you may have to fake a smile. But smiling can lead to a better mood and overall increase joy.
