How are adventures and kindness related?
You probably think I’m crazy for trying to pair two totally different words together as the name of my new blog/website. I totally agree. So what inspired me to dive into the craziness?
I think they’re related.
Dictionary.com would probably disagree with me on this, but I think they have something in common; they lead to joy.
Joy is different than happiness. It is stronger, more exuberant. It lasts longer and makes a bigger impact. And it can make all of the difference in the world. Joy can alter a person’s mood, social interactions, work performance, and much more. It can transform a dreary day into a more hopeful one.
Joy is something that we could all use more of in our everyday lives. We need to wake up in the morning excited about what’s in store. That kind of positive outlook is actually good for our health! A positive psychology researcher at the University of North Carolina named Barbara Fredrickson recently published a study about positive thinking. She found that this kind of thinking leads to more positive emotions, which leads to numerous mental and physical health benefits. One of the key techniques that was used in the study was loving-kindness meditation.
(Notice: there’s one of our key words!)
To sum it up, kindness is important. It’s also fun! Stick with me over the next few months and we’ll talk more about kindness and it’s role in the big picture.
So how exactly do we wake up in the morning with a positive outlook on what the day will bring? We embrace the adventure! There is something exciting about your day. I want to help you find it. If you don’t look forward to tomorrow, then it’s time to make a change. It’s time to
embrace the adventures of everyday life.
Let’s turn ordinary days into extraordinary days. Let’s find a way to travel the world without breaking the bank. Let’s find a way to create a more positive outlook on life. Let’s embark on an adventure!
