10 Ways We’re Gonna Make 2017 Awesome!

Happy 2017 my joyous reader!!! I’m super excited to share today’s video with you because Walker is in this one! It’s not very often I get to do a video with my hubs because he’s usually behind the camera.  I think the last time was in the summer when I shared with you How I Balance Being an Entrepreneur While Being a Mama. 

I’m also excited because I love the energy a new year brings. That sense of renewal is one of my faves.

In today’s video we both share how we plan to make 2017 AWESOME! We didn’t share with each other ahead of time what we would be saying, so it’s kinda neat that some of them ended up being very similar. I’m sure you can guess what one of the ways I’m gonna make 2017 awesome by the photo below… :)

  • I’m going to lighten up and choose joy! The last few years have been very challenging for me and my family. I want to find small ways to take care of myself, reduce stress, and find happiness in everyday things.

    • Self-care is a wonderful thing to do for yourself Krissy. I hope 2017 brings you lots of joyous moments!

  • You guys are seriously the cutest couple ever!! No sorry, the most “badass” couple ever!! Love seeing you guys together….and thanks for all the hard work you both do to inspire and help people, like me, everyday!! All the best in 2017! And by the way I got my copy of Joyous Detox and I can’t wait to dive in!! ❤

    • Thanks so much Karen! Appreciate it. My pleasure, or rather, our pleasure! All the best to you as well and thank you for taking the time to comment. I’m thrilled you’ve got a copy of my book!! Wishing you joyous health!

  • You two are so fun! Your energy is contagious.
    I am making 2017 my healthiest year ever. I am working out and eating clean. I love your new book (I have your first book too) and I have shared it with three of my friends.
    Blessings from MN!

    • Thank so much Anne! We are happy you love the video :) Sounds like your well on your way to an awesome 2017 with a positive attitude! Wishing you the best,
      Joy (and Walker) :)

  • Omg I loved this video! You guys are seriously the cutest couple ever!

    As for 2017, I am going to try and drink more water everyday because I forget frequently. Secondly I’m going to aim to try at least one new recipe from my new detox book every week ( can you guess whose book this might be???? Lol). Thirdly I’m going to go ” electronic free ” after 9 pm each night because I’m on social media/texting way too much! And last but not least, I would like to reconnect to my yoga practice as way of designating self care time every week.

    Thanks for the inspiration to kick start my 2017 goals!

    • Thanks Nicole! So happy you liked the video :)

      I love all of those ideas – especially the electronic-free initiative! I think we could all benefit from that. And of course, your mission to cook up a storm from Joyous Detox :) Can’t wait to see all of your beautiful creations each week!
