“For it is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.”
-- David Steindl-Rast, Gratefulness, 1984
What is JOY day all about?
Our goal is to increase JOY in your life and the lives of others by spreading more JOY. This year, we are incorporating gratitude as our theme and way to spread more JOY by simply being grateful. We invite you to uplift others with your words of gratitude. This will allow those we come in contact with to feel seen, heard, loved, valued and appreciated.
This is why you want to feel gratitude:
Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack.
Showing gratitude is proven in multiple studies to make you happier.
Research shows that giving thanks can improve all of your relationships.
Gratitude changes your brain by making you think of what you have instead of what you do not.
