Capturing the "joy of living" involves realizing and acknowledging the small joys of life. Letting go of financial worries, downsizing and living well are all great ways to capture Joie De Vivre.
- Make time to relax
Stress can impede your ability to acknowledge what is happening in the world around you. Make time to relax, take stock and avoid living a rushed life.
- Be in the present moment
It is important to live in the present moment in order to be able to appreciate the small joys of life. Recognize the small moments of joy as they come.
- Remember and cherish special moments
Treasure happy moments by remembering how they make you feel. Recall these memories when you feel stressed or when life seems difficult. Keep a gratitude journal that reminds you of all the pleasures of life and the things you should be grateful for.
- Do what you love
Figure out what you love to do and what makes you happy, and make time for these things. Surround yourself with people who share your interests and passion.
- Give gifts to loved ones
Give small gifts to the people that you love. Strive to make someone else’s day better. Take time away from the chaos, schedules and deadlines to concentrate on bringing joy to others, and inevitably, yourself.
