13 Things to Bring You Joy This Summer

Hello friends! Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be enjoying it more, even though I’m no longer a student and summer doesn’t make much of a difference for me. But, I do feel like summer seems to be a nice relaxing and slower time. Traffic dies down a little here in Houston, and things go just a little smoother.

I read an interesting article a while back about finding your joy. Naturally, I’m a pretty joyful person but doesn’t mean I don’t find myself in a rut or stuck totally vegging out watching TV every moment I’m not at work. So this article stood out to me on looking into finding myself a little joy this summer! It all comes down to joyful moments that can come from the smallest choices. The list below is small choices I have decided to make in order to find my joy.

  1. Read more books
  2. Dedicated Bible Study Time
  3. Become more active at Church
  4. Dance around the house– while you clean and organize
  5. Journal more
  6. Go for walks
  7. Reorganize whatever you can. Your phone, purse, wallet, house,   desktop, email. Really the possibilities are endless.
  8. Get back into crafting
  9. Bake
  10. Read under a tree
  11. Give yourself breakfast in bed
  12. Hold your hugs just a little longer
  13. Discover somewhere new in your own city

I hope these things can help you find your joy this summer! If not create your own list of items that can get you up and moving and bring you joy!
