“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” Joseph Campbell

While maintaining a healthy diet and exercising is crucial to a healthy lifestyle, studies have proven that being joyful is just perhaps even more crucial. Not only does it reduce stress, but having a positive attitude actually makes you far more productive. Hosts Jack Pawlakos and Katie Choo discuss the difference between happiness and joyfulness, offering personal thoughts on how they find joy in their life. It can be playing with your dog, watching the stars, listening to crashing waves, baking a cake. The hosts read two chapters, the Gift of Joyfulness and the Gift of Integrity from the anthology, Be the Star You Are!® Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World by Cynthia Brian. Siri Phaneendra shares how nature and meditation brings joy to our lives. We need to get away from social media and electronics to balance our daily life through allowing nature to be our teacher. Step outside and feel the joy!

“Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home... it's your responsibility to love it, or change it.” Chuck Palahniuk
