The Counselor's Corner

This month we are talking about Joy! The dictionary defines it as, “the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation:” The definition we are using in class is:


Joy: choosing to find delight in all experiences in our lives


We want to make sure that we share with our students that: 1) is a choice we make even in difficult circumstances, and 2) our lives don’t have to be perfect to experience Joy. We can experience Joy is the most challenging circumstances. Studies show that choosing to be joyful has positive effects on our physical, mental, and emotional health. During this month, we will talk about people who have chosen Joy in difficult times of their lives. We will talk about what helps us feel Joy and how we can find Joy even when life is tough.
