1. Identify three habits you have, list them according to how much joy they bring you – with the first providing the most, three the least.
Mochas in the morning
Time with family
2. For each of your three habits, describe two people, other than yourself, who are affected by your habit and how. If you believe these habits do not involve other people in any way, describe two consequences (other than joy) they have for you.
Mochas - Bob and Christa
Time - Christa and RAVEN
Art - Bob and Jo
3. Discuss one of your habits with a friend and tell them how it brings you joy. Describe your conversation. How did they respond? Where did this revelation lead your encounter?
Discussed with friend who was envious that her husband was never interested in fancy coffees or taking the time to sit and just chat. Lead to a moment of sadness as she reflected on her husband passed unexpectedly (a couple of years ago). Water over the dam.
4. Consider the second and third habits you listed above, the ones that bring you less joy. How can you alter your habits to move them up or off your list?
Ha! Both nos. 2 & 3 occasionally rise to the top!! Circumstantial for sure!
5. Reveal something about a fourth and fifth joyful habit, ones you’ve remembered since beginning this exercise. Where would you put each on your list and why?
Reading - often at the top but never infringing on the others on the list . . Wouldn't sit and read in the morning over mochas leaving Bob out. . .
Scuba diving. . Involves Bob but can be an individual experience
