So what it JOY? It’s feeling of intense happiness. And doens’t everyone
However, many of us go through our lives feeling little JOY because
of all the stress in our lives and we are too busy doing other things.

Your tips for meditation:
1. Create a routine preferably the same time every day, perhaps before
getting into the routine of your day and before you go to bed at night.
2. Set the scene for your meditation in a calm, quiet place where
you know you won’t be disturbed by other, computer devises or interruptions.
3. Make yourself comfortable either sitting or lying down. Don’t get
too comfortable that you fall asleep although that is OK too.
4. Let your thoughts come and go like the waves on the ocean. Thank

5. Start your practice slowly, perhaps five to ten minutes per day.
You can even do a short meditation during the day when the time is
6. Find some outside motivation to help you continue your practice
so you can get support from others who meditate.
