Today’s episode is going to be all about gratitude, because it’s Thanksgiving week in the United States! While it’s amazing to practice gratitude during the month of November, I believe it’s something that is important to do year-round. I’m excited to talk about the two main types of ‘fuel’ the brain runs on (it’s truly fascinating to me how God designed our human brains), what it can look like to have a gratitude practice and joy journal, simple steps for increasing joy in your everyday life, and more.
I recently learned that joy is a supra emotion (meaning it connects with other emotions at the same time) – it’s not just synonymous with happiness like I used to think. Joy is contagious, it’s VERY much needed, and it draws good movement. This is a short and sweet episode, but I hope it’s valuable for you as you focus on fostering joy during your holiday gatherings, and throughout your entire year!
In this episode, Fostering Joy in the Everyday, we cover:
- The two types of ‘fuel’ our brains run on
- Creating a gratitude practice and starting a joy journal
- Simple steps to increasing joy + the impact of seeing joy on other peoples’ faces

More about the Good Movement Draws Good Movement podcast:
In stockmanship (the art and science of handling cattle in a safe, effective, low-stress manner), we have this phrase . . . good movement draws good movement.
It’s this thing that happens when we ask a small group of cattle, maybe a cow, or a pair to move out in a certain direction and their movement draws the whole herd into moving in the same direction.
Good movement happens when we approach the cattle with a positive attitude, read and really listen to what they’re telling us, and communicate accordingly.
We don’t approach the aware, flighty cattle the same as we do the tame, docile cattle. We adjust ourselves, our energy, and approach, and communicate with each differently.
These adjustments help us effectively draw good movement from each, which then draws good movement from the herd. But it starts with us.
The same is true for humans. Good movement starts with us.
Welcome to Good Movement Draws Good Movement, the podcast where farmers, ranchers, and rural folks can grow relationally through awareness, understanding, and effective communication.
Hey, it’s me – T. I’m your host, and I, along with my guests, will be covering topics related to drawing good movement – things like self and social awareness, brain science, positive psychology, extending grace, and so much more.
We’ll share tools that can help you understand why you are the way you are, why others are the way they are, and how you can use that to step out of self-told lies with grace and compassion to draw good movement in conversations, relationships, and life in rural America.
