Joy Jars & Why You Should Make One

I saw this idea on TikTok and thought I should share.

They’re the cutest things…called “Joy Jars”.

And it only takes 2 things to make them!

First, you grab any jar or container. Some people like to paint/decorate theirs but I just used a plain mason jar.

Second, get small pieces of paper or post-its. Anytime something that sparks joy happens to you, write it down and put it in the jar.

This is not my picture nor my Joy Jar, but an example to reference!

The idea is that at the end of the year, you’ll have dozens of happy moments to reflect on.

I also like the idea of it making your brain “look” for joy.

Gary Vaynerchuk said something along the lines of “if you’re looking for bad, you’ll find bad…and if you’re looking for good, you’ll find good…it’s all about what you’re looking for”.

That piece of wisdom is something ill carry with me as I move forward in making and keeping up with my Joy Jar!

Let me know if you make one!
