5 Minute Joy Challenge

Joy Challenge- what is it?

The Joy Challenge is a quick 5 minutes (or less!) way for us to spread more joy on the internet. With the steady influx of negativity we’re faced with daily, it can be hard to see through it to the good. So often when the internet and social media is talked about, only the unpleasant side is talked about. However, for so many of us, particularly those who are unwell, the internet is a lifeline. I really enjoyed highlighting accounts I love and wanted to find a way to continue. So, this challenge is a way for us all to help make the goodness of the internet shine that bit brighter.

So often it’s easy for us to scroll through our favourite content without interacting with the person behind it. I know it can be exhausting keeping on top of comments/replies etc. so this is a fun way for you to spread some internet joy!

Ok, but what do I have to do for this challenge?

What you do is entirely up to you and how you’re feeling. I’ve created a simple guideline but feel free to go off piste!

First, pick a blog/twitter or an Instagram account you love.

Then do all or some of the following:

4- Likes/Favourites

3- Comment

2- Share with a reason why they’re great.

1-Message them and tell them why they’re your favourite

Bonus- sign up to their newsletter/ other social media accounts

Set yourself a timer for 5 minutes and see how many you can do!

Let me know how you get on!

    Nice idea! I used to do this series called, “There’s a blog that I love.” where I would write about a blog that I really liked and share details about it. I should do it again!

      Definitely. It’s a lovely idea to share those you love. It’s how I’ve found most of my favourites

    What a lovely idea! I’ve noticed you’ve not been active online for quite some time. Are you doing okay?
