ARE YOU LIV­ING A LIFE THAT BRINGS YOU JOY?

Style Magazine - - Promotion - SARAH KEELEY, STYLE COLUM­NIST

For many we are stuck in a cy­cle: serv­ing oth­ers, con­tin­u­ously say­ing yes to things that do not bring us joy.

So what are we re­ally in­vest­ing our time in? And is it mak­ing us happy? Sit down and see where you are in­vest­ing your time. Se­ri­ously, sit down and write a list. Does it serve you? Does it add value and joy to your life?

Why are you re­ally do­ing what you are do­ing? Guilt, to prove some­thing, con­trol?

You will be shocked to see how much time you are wast­ing on ac­tiv­i­ties and peo­ple that do not bring you joy. De-clut­ter your mind and or­gan­ise your life. Sim­ply mov­ing the men­tal and phys­i­cal en­ergy around you can cre­ate space for things that bring you joy. De-clut­ter things that are hold­ing you back. Old cloth­ing, ex­pired food, old pa­per work and bro­ken items around the home.

It does not need to be a new year, a new sea­son or a new week to bring a new you to fruition.

It just needs to be a re­al­i­sa­tion that old habits are not serv­ing you and that a new you will bring you so much more.

A new you, a more aligned you, can con­quer so much more and be a more joy­ful, gen­er­ous per­son to those that you truly value.
