Are you ready to find simple ways to #AddJoy? I know I am! One piece of the challenge is to use the list above and share a photo with that theme on social media. These can be new photos or old ones that you have taken previously. Remember, we are adding joy, not extra work and guilt!
You might want to save the above photo to your phone for easy reference.
You can also write the prompts into your calendar. Whatever way works for you!
What do I do with the photo once I take it?
Once you’ve identified or taken a photo that goes with the theme, feel free to share it in our Facebook group, on Twitter, or Instagram! Part of the fun is seeing what other people come up with for the same theme. Make it easier for people to find your photos by tagging them with the hashtag #AddJoy (not sure how?
