In a world often consumed by the hustle and bustle of daily life, finding moments of genuine joy can feel like a fleeting luxury. However, a recent analysis from the BIG JOY Project sheds light on the power of what they term “micro-acts” – small gestures of kindness or gratitude that have the potential to significantly enhance our well-being. This project explores how committing to daily micro-acts can lead to a remarkable 25% increase in emotional well-being over just one week. These findings highlight the profound impact that seemingly minor actions can have on our overall happiness.

The essence of the BIG JOY Project lies in its simplicity and accessibility. Participants from over 200 countries engage in daily activities designed to uplift their spirits, from making gratitude lists to performing acts of kindness for others. One of the project’s key insights is the notion of joy as a skill that can be honed through regular practice. By deliberately incorporating micro-acts into our daily routines, we empower ourselves to navigate adversity with greater resilience and optimism.

Through Your Best Self Online Course, we can learn strategies to be more aligned with the things that bring us greater well-being — for example, being familiar with sensory-motor preferences in the Mouth, Move, Touch, Look, and Listen categories help to put Your Best Self forward at home, at work, and in your relationships. As we embark on this journey of finding joy, let us remember the profound impact of being in-tune with your self to creating a culture of joy, kindness, and connection.
