TAP 240 - Kaia Roman - How To Find Joy In 30 Days

Summary:

This week I chat with Kaia Roman about how she went from burn out in a start up environment to putting herself first and taking 30 days to find joy in her life.  Kaia then with encouragement from friends decided to write it all down and share it with the world. 

Kaia Roman is the author of the new book, The Joy Plan (Sourcebooks, July 11, 2017). She teaches Mindfulness to elementary school students in Santa Cruz, California and is a blogger for mindbodygreen and other sites. She writes about how she went from joyless and anxious to grateful and optimistic so she can remember how she did if she forgets. For everyday joy and mindfulness tips, sign up for Kaia’s newsletter at TheJoyPlan.com.
