A recent study showed that only 14% of Americans consider themselves “very happy”, and much of the rest of the world isn’t doing much better.
I know that you don't want to be miserable. You want to show your kids what a vibrant, thriving adult looks like by...you know...being one.
But would you believe me if I told you that you could actually be happy? Right now? Regardless of whatever shit sandwich life might be serving you?
You see, after years of studying the subject, scientists actually have a pretty good idea of what makes us happy, and it has little to do with life going ‘right’, and everything to do with our habits--the things we do every day that either serve us well or make our lives worse.
You have probably already heard about the happiness benefits of certain things: practicing gratitude, exercising, or meditation, for instance.
But who has time for all that?
And even if you made the time to actually DO all this happiness-boosting stuff, deciding WHAT, specifically, to do to practice boosting your happiness when you’re already tapped out makes the process of caring for yourself feel overwhelming.
I'm obsessed with sucking all the joy I can out of life while optimizing things so that I don't waste any time.
That's why I developed Jumpstart Your Joy: a collection of hundreds of prompts, playlists, and ideas to help us easily practice the activities proven to make us happier.
The centerpiece of Jumpstart Your Joy is the “Joy Board”, a drag-and-drop collection of activities, prompts, and challenges across several categories:
I wouldn't just throw a Trello board your way with no direction. You’ll also get:
Well, in short, I am obsessed with making life simple, efficient, and JOYFUL.
I'm Anissa, by the way, the mama behind Mama Goes Beyond.
I am constantly looking for ways to optimize everything, yes, even my own happiness. I read countless books and took multiple courses as I strived to make myself happier.
As I worked through all the books and courses, they all said the same thing. Eventually it occurred to me that I knew what I needed to do, I just couldn’t seem to put it into practice.
Jumpstart Your Joy is the system I created for myself to remove my excuses. When I open my eyes in the morning, I can quickly push “play” on a meditation I’ll love. When it’s time to journal, I’ve got prompts to show me exactly what to write, and when it’s time to exercise, I just choose one of the many great videos I've saved in my playlists.
In my opinion, all this unhappiness in the world is an emergency—one that’s easily fixable with a change in our habits.
I’m so excited to share my habits with you.
