Have you ever stopped to consider what personal interests or passions bring you pure joy? Do you know what your J-Spot is -- that special something that you do only for you that leaves you feeling euphoric and energized?

More and more women today are looking for ways to add more balance and meaning to their hectic, demanding lives by engaging in personal interests that send them soaring. Whether it's quilting, gardening, tai chi, hiking, painting or jazz singing, a joy-based activity or hobby can add years to your life. Is finding your J-Spot like discovering the ever-elusive fountain of youth? Yes. Participating in joy-based pastimes has many benefits from improved mental and physical health to enriched friendships and increased levels of happiness and self-esteem. All proven to keep us living longer.

If you are wondering where to start, here are three steps to help you find your J-Spot.

1. Create a Joy List
Write down everything you can think of that brings you joy, from eating a chocolate to running your first 10K. To get started, think of things you used to like doing as a child - you can ask a parent or sibling to help you remember.

2. Clue into Your Interests
Look through magazines and old photos and pay attention to what sparks you. What excites you. These are all clues to what you care about. Perhaps you continually focus on rock climbing...that might be your next passion.

3. Follow Your Gut
Notice what you get emotional about or feel connected to. Even if it seem out of the ordinary for you...it is probably something your intuition is directing you to notice. Ask yourself how you could turn that feeling into something just for you.
