I’m having a lot of fun playing around with doing more video blogs, and today I have another video for you.
This little strategy is something I used during my travels in Asia to help me identify what was TRULY making me deep down-in-my-bones happy, so that I could then focus on doing MORE of that and less of the other stuff that wasn’t making me as happy.
In my conversations with women every week, questions I commonly get asked are:
How do I go about discovering what brings me joy?
If I’m not turning to food all the time for connection, love, and excitement, what will fill that need instead?
What do I really want? What makes me happy?
The strategy in this video will help you learn more about yourself so that you can cultivate a life that fills you up even more.
You’re unique, what makes you happy is unique, and you deserve to take some time to reflect on that so you can create more of the feelings you want to feel as you move forward.
Have a listen, do the 60 second exercise I go over in the video, and let me know what you discover!
I’d love to hear in the comments below: when you did the 60 second exercise, did you discover anything surprising about your own happiness? Let’s discuss!
Fun! Well, I loved family time, cooking/baking for the people I love, couch time with friends, and short barre workouts. What has been eye opening when trying to figure out what excites me, is I always would limit my baking to “super healthy,” which was far less gratifying as a cook. The interesting part to me is that eating all kinds of desserts is not the excitement as much as making it for an occasion where I know it will make someone smile 🙂 Loving the videos!
Great video! I’m also someone who needs alone time – but this exercise also revealed most of my happiest/memorable moments from the past month were experiences with others. We had a fun work celebration that turned into one of those spontaneous nights of dancing/drinking/learning about each other outside work. I also spent time with family at my cousins baptism where we reconnected and had those endless belly laughs!
I think I would like to do this exercise every month if I can remember! 🙂
Oh my goodness Jamie I loved this! I’ve been really focusing on living in the present and this activity helped my recognize all I have to be grateful for. And the things that made me happy were exactly what you said in the video! Being in nature, connecting with people, trying new hobbies. Not once did diet or grueling workouts come to mind. Thank you so much for this video and looking forward to more from you.
