Work on a craft project, take a walk in nature, read a book, laugh with a friend or make a snow angel (and rejoice when you can get back up again like my friend does!). Whatever makes your heart happy. Having a positive mindset helps you make good food and activity choices, reduces stress and helps you sleep better.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus for the joy in this advent season. We thank You for the joy you promised and provide in our lives as we trust You. Give us eyes that find fun in an ordinary day or laughter in the midst of a challenging day. Help us use times of fun to motivate us to continue being joyful and making good choices in our wellness journey.
