Today, I would like to share a list of little things that make me happy on a daily basis. Some time ago, I wrote a blogpost about being thankful and grateful. I got so many lovely responses to this post and therefore I figured it might be nice to tell you about small events that light up my day. Some might be super ordinary while others might be things you had never thought of; a lot of different things make me happy. Just a list to share some positivity : ) .
- Waking up and knowing exactly what I want to wear and actually feeling good in the outfit (when it looks as nice in your head as in real life).
- Finishing my homework/study work for the day and crossing everything off my to do list.
- Receiving a nice and caring message from a friend/family member.
- Enjoying a good meal/snack (my daily happiness also partly derives from chocolate, to be completely honest with you).
- Listening to my favorite album (at the moment that is Fine Line by Harry Styles) while cycling/driving to school or work.
- Daydreaming about future travel plans or other exciting events planned (such as concerts).
- Seeing a funny video on social media which instantly improves my mood.
- Having a good work-out (preferably with some work-out buddies by my side to get me through the squat-session).
- Clearing your mind by going outside and deeply breathing in the cold air; so fresh!
- Hugging the people I love.
- Seeing a beautiful sunset.
- Having a productive day.
- Meeting new people that inspire me.
- Being in the presence of people I care about.
- Trying new things (this point itself might be a bit scary sometimes, but the feeling afterwards is really rewarding and does enhance happiness to me).
- Feeling really comfortable and at ease (when around people I like to talk to), this feels so freeing!
These are some of the things that definitely make my day. I know that there is a super cringe saying that goes “Enjoy the little things”, I personally am not a fan of overrated quotes that become cliché. However, in this case, I don’t think the statement is overrated. Who doesn’t want to be happy every day? Happiness can only be a constant factor in your life when you appreciate all that is around you and derive positivity from that, instead of only seeking and appreciating happiness when doing something special. I would like to ask you to also make a list of the (little) things that make you happy. You can even just sum up some points in your head and keep these to yourself; the essence of this exercise is to realize what is really crucial in your day to day life when it comes to being/getting into a good mood.
See you next time.
Lots of love,
