    Finding Joy

    Isn’t it interesting how simple definitions can unlock things we have never seen before? Upon further exploration on the topic of positive alacrity, an article explored the unexpected psychological benefit of positive alacrity - the effects of this behavior goes both ways by uplifting, observing, and voicing these micro-moments of joy to others, and we then actually absorb the joy ourselves.
