A few weeks ago, I wrote about the way in which as adults we sometimes lose the sense of unadulterated joy that most of us were lucky enough to have as children.
I asked how we might regain it.
Reading through your comments and emails, I was struck by one theme that kept on coming through: get out of your head and into your body. Here are ten of your suggestions:
- Play with children.
- Allow yourself to weep aloud, don’t hold back. This sets free glorious rejoicing.
- Spend time in nature.
- Run or hike.
- Share community meals.
- Make scarecrows.
- Play tag with a dog.
- Paint prayers and hide them in jars around the property.
