If you know how to bake cookies, I suggest that you bake “joy cookies.” If you don’t bake cookies yourself, you can ask someone else to bake them for you.
Whatever cookie recipe you use, shape the dough into three shapes: a letter J, a letter O, and a letter Y. This, of course, spells the word “JOY.”
As you prepare the cookies contemplate what it is like to experience joy.
