The Next Chapter: The Joy Diet


It is time to set off on another adventure with the wonderful Jamie Riddler and her merry band of creatives. Remember how much fun I had wrecking my journal this summer?

This time we are working our way through The Joy Diet: 10 Daily Practices for a Happier Life by Martha Beck. Here are the ten ingredients of The Joy Diet.

Nothing

Truth

Desire

Creativity

Risk

Treats

Play

Laughter

Connection

Feasting

We'll be looking at each of these ideas one week at a time.

This harmonizes quite nicely with the work I've been doing in the Mondo Beyondo course. Practice Joy is right near the top of my Mondo Beyondo list. What better way to initiate a practice than with a book like this?

I'll be blogging about The Joy Diet and its ten intriguing ingredients on Fridays. If you like the idea conjuring a little joy, why don't you join us?
