What is Natural Joy Day?
Natural Joy Day is a day dedicated to creating intentional moments of joy throughout your day and celebrating those moments no matter how big or small.
Why is natural joy so important?
It has been proven that feeling joy in our bodies allows for the release of dopamine and serotonin, two types of neurotransmitters in the brain which are heavily associated with happiness. Researchers have found when it comes to health and happiness, it is well-established that happiness buffers stress by preserving health and encouraging longer life and can positively affect life satisfaction by increasing mental well-being.
3 Easy ways to promote natural joy in your life
Smile! 😊 When you smile, your brain releases tiny molecules called neuropeptides to help fight off stress and increase happiness hormones such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins.
Sing your favorite song! Evidence shows that singing releases “happy” hormones such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine known to boost your mood.
Give a compliment. Giving a compliment can not only boost your level of joy it can boost the recipient's level too. It’s a win/win!
