J is for Joy

Joy is a vivid emotion of pleasure according to The Oxford English Reference Dictionary, and I would agree with that. Enjoy or enjoyment is the relevant verb, and I personally tend to be more aware of enjoy than joy – so writing this is giving me a pleasurable cause for reflection too!

1) What does Joy mean to you? If you find it easier to start with thinking about “enjoyment” (like me) go ahead and do that.

2) Is “joy” or “enjoyment” something that you are aware of in your daily life? How do you think your life would be different if you consciously enjoyed something daily?

3) Perhaps you use a different word to describe a feeling that as you now reflect, you could connect with joy. Play with words such as warmth, love, pleasure, deep pleasure, fun. 

4) How would you describe the difference between joy and happiness?

5) What single activity could you do each day that you would really enjoy?

Heightened awareness is the cornerstone of communication … of personal, professional and leadership development. Naomi is a finely tuned human being - a first class teacher and highly focused coach. I hired Naomi’s services with the express purpose of building a heightened sense of awareness. This has empowered me to be far more present in the stillness of the moment and to really hear in depth what is being said, with significant benefits to clients as well as in my personal life. I would strongly recommend that you work with Naomi to discover these benefits for yourself.

Naomi is a wonderful, caring, compassionate and creative coach who has helped me see a clearer way ahead on many occasions! She asks insightful questions and allows me to come to answers with encouragement and support along the way.
She is a great family coach and works brilliantly with addressing parenting issues that can make any parent question their ability to manage family life! I highly recommend her.
