We need so little to be happy
Happiness doesn't come from the big things in life, it comes from little things.
Here is one trick to happiness that everyone can learn to improve their life immediately. For the most part though, life is made up of lots of little moments. If you can find joy in the little things in life, then you will find yourself much happier on a day-to-day basis.
What makes your day beautiful?
What do you think about when you go to bed at night?
Do you smile looking back at something that happened during the day?
It might be a small thing, and that’s where the beauty lies.
“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realise they were the big things.”
Throughout the day or week, your routine is most likely set and the little things happening during that time are the ones that are making a difference.
The days when I wake up fresh and early and eat breakfast.
The mini dance party I have with extra loud music.
Good hair day. When I can’t stop admiring myself in the mirror.
That perfect cup of tea.
Going to the beach and watching the sunset.
Meeting a cute dog or cat and getting to pet him or her.
A very refreshing Zumba session or a good workout.
A hearty conversation with a colleague.
Appreciation at work.
Painting on the canvas that has been staring at me for days.
Writing. Poem or article.
Listening to good music and enjoying the breeze.
Staring outside the window with a nice mug of coffee or warm water.
Cooking something successfully, without burning down the kitchen.
Eating healthy the whole day. No junk food. Happy body. Happy mind.
Getting wet on a rainy day like a child.
When good songs play on the radio and the commute to the office is no longer about the traffic.
Crazy laughter sessions with friends.
A nice and soothing talk with family.
Watching a nice movie, curled up under the blanket.
Notice the little things around. Notice the small things that give you happiness, even if it is a minute short. If something makes your soul smile, note it and make sure you include it as part of your routine.
