The Live By Design Podcast

Book Report: Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee

February 14, 2021

Let’s dig into today’s Book Report episode all about JOY! Let’s learn how to layer it into our day, and our homes, to feel joyful each day.

I'm KAte!

I believe in cultivating joy, practicing gratitude, and prioritizing your own self care and wellness routines, so that you can love those closest to you the best you possibly can!

Have you ever read a book that took something intangible (such as joy) and the author made it feel approachable and, dare I say, attainable?

That’s exactly how I felt while reading Ingrid Fetell Lee’s “Joyful.” I’ve always sought to cultivate joy, but Ingrid gave me the framework and vernacular to take my study to the next level.

Throughout the book she explores how joy can be purposefully created through measures both big and small, and she equips us with the tools to cultivate joy in our own lives too!

In addition to this mini book report, this week I also share how I strike the balance between working towards big, audacious goals while also appreciating each and every day. I delve more into how I do this through flow states, a gratitude practice with my husband, and finally my Start Today Journal practice too!

Thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to review the podcast! Leave your 5 star review and a couple of sentences about what the podcast means to you – and if your review is read on a future podcast episode, then your next cup of coffee is on Kate as a special thank you!

I have exciting news to share – I’ve been working hard to create the perfect goal setting masterclass for you! 

I’m launching The Live By Design Goal Setting Masterclass this spring, and if you want a sneak peek here’s what you can expect to learn during our one month course together: 

⭐ How to identify your self limiting beliefs and turn them into self worth beliefs

⭐ Together dream up your most exciting future and distill it down to 10 / 5 / 1 year tangible goals

⭐ AND learn how to stay dedicated to these pursuits…or more importantly what to do when your enthusiasm wanes and you need to tap into your inner strength and discipline

Be the first to find out when the course is available so I can be in touch this spring with a special offer to become a Founding Member and receive the course at the lowest price it’ll ever be launched at!
