There is no real recipe for joy, but helpful wisdom do exist. Following the right wisdom as recipe do help cultivate joy.
Do what feels right for you, regardless of what others say. This is not reckless or arrogance but essential for your joy. It’s not your job to please everyone or expecting yourself to be perfect.
Rest often as necessary. Prioritize your well-being. Enjoy your food without guilt. Listen to your body. Get outside. Establish healthy boundaries. Give yourself permission to need others. Seek out the places and the people that make you feel most alive.
