In this episode…
As professionals, we all go through tough times. An experience that often gets taken for granted is stress or burnout. What’s most difficult about it is that you wouldn’t realize how burned out you are until you take note of the addictive, quick-win behavior you display when you have high stress in your life. Simply put, you go out shopping for joy.
Dr. Jessica Louie says you can turn burnout around and bring more joy into your life daily by asking yourself three questions daily. It’s simple: you start with, “what is one thing I can get excited about today?”. Next, think to yourself: “what is a situation that might stress me out today and how will I bring my best self to it?”. And, last but not least, “who is someone I can surprise with a note, gift, or thank you today?”.
Learn more about the steps you need to take to cultivate joy at work on this episode of the Philanthropy212 podcast with Penny Cowden and guest Dr. Jessica Louie, of Spark Joy in Healthcare. Together, they talk about the KonMari Method and how it can help you, her own burnout experience, and how to create and spread joy in and around you daily.
