Joy – It’s a choice we are all allowed to make that leads to a way of life. It happens to be one of my three words right now, which means I was thrilled when my guest Katie Carrol wanted to jump on a call and discuss Joy with me. 

Katie, creator of her own podcast, “Thriving Joy with Katie Carroll” is a pediatric nurse, health coach and personal trainer who is passionate about her soul and living a healing life.

Answers to your questions about Joy will be explained after listening to Choosing Joy with Katie Carroll

* Why we seek joy
* We do have a choice and how to make it
* Steps to aide you in finding joy
* Why Grace can help us find balance
* The importance of keeping your tank full

My favorite takeaways from Choosing Joy.

  1. Is when Katie explains that while self-care is not selfish another way to look at it is as self preservation
  2. That looking at “tasks” such as meal prepping or drinking water are actually gifts of self care. Katie explains in a way that really reframed my mind for everyday tasks.
  3. The reminder we discuss that everything we experience gives us a chance to help others move through their journey.

A great episode to listen to after this one is my Episode with Nichol Walters Balance – Why we seek it and what to do when we find it.
