What does “choosing joy” mean? It means choosing to be happy and live life joyfully, even when times get tough. Choosing joy can change your life and totally change who you are. Here are 4 ways that YOU can choose joy.

  1. Choose to be around the right people. When you spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded, you are in relationships that help you, not hurt you.  Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be.  Choose friends who you are proud to be associated with, people you admire, who love and respect you. Spend time with people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it, because life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. Choose-Joy
  2. Choose to smile more often. Smiling is a choice, so choose to make it! Don’t wait for people to smile, show them how! A real smile makes everyone around you feel good. When you smile, a message is sent to your brain saying that you are happy. When you are happy, your body cranks out all kinds of feel good endorphins.  Bottom line? Smiling makes you happier and more joyful.
  3. Choose honesty. Be honest with yourself and everyone else. Be kind, do the right thing! Being honest is a less complicated way to live.
  4. Choose a good attitude. A lot of times, what really messes with our head is the picture of how we think life is supposed to be. Remember, life is a journey, not a destination. Think of every moment as a gift and an opportunity. Be positive, smile, and make your life count.  A great attitude always leads to great experiences.

Choose joy, ladies. I promise you won’t regret it.

XOXO, Chels

Get Up, Go Outside, and Be Happy!

Nature is one of God’s most wonderful gifts!   It’s all around you, so why not take advantage of it?  It’s easier to be happy when you’re outside in the warm sun and cool breeze.  It’s much better than being stuck indoors!  Whenever possible, get up and go outside!  I promise it’ll make all the difference.

Your body recognizes when it’s outdoors and indoors.  Greenness, water, plants, and sun are proven to relax the body.  It does some good for the mind, body, and soul.  Just a few minutes outside a day can reset the body and reduce stress.  It’s also a great way to get vitamin D, which can be produced naturally in the body through sunlight exposure.  Vitamin D aids in a healthy immune system, helps us keep a healthy weight, prevents cancer, and can reduce inflammation.  It’s so important to be out in the sun!

Another benefit of being outdoors is your endurance!  When working out, it’s easier to run farther when you have beautiful surroundings to look at.  It’s a sort of distraction!  Try going for a Chelsea Crockett- run outsidelonger run than usual throughout a park or neighborhood or do pull-ups on a tree branch.  You can even do your ab work in the nice open field of green grass.  Your mind won’t even realize how hard your body is working!

I hope you’ll make an effort to spend more time outdoors.  Your body will thank you for it!

Love,
