Taking only a minute to enjoy something simple, can make all the difference between having an okay day and an extraordinary one. In our busy routines and overstimulating world, it’s easy to overlook the simple joys. The Huffington Post shares with us a few simple pleasures that could become the best parts of the day:
Your Morning Cup
Whether you have coffee or tea, that first morning sip can be a wonderful wakeup call. As the warmth fills and awakens you, take time to think of something you’re looking forward to that day.
The commute can be a time for you to clear your mind so you’re ready to be productive in the morning or it can be seen as the time to leave work stress behind as you head home.
Don’t underestimate the power of a good laugh, you know, the kind that leaves your stomach hurting. In one feel-good action you can relieve stress, help your sleeping habits and even build up your immune system.
A Quiet Place To Sit
You are constantly walking through public spaces without even noticing. A park bench or building steps can be the most relaxing areas to really stop and just watch the world go by for a moment.
Your Favorite Tunes
Has someone ever told you to snap out of it? Listening to your tunes can instantly put you in a cheerful mood and boost your productivity. So turn up the beat and dance out those negative thoughts
The Ease At Which You Can Connect With Family And Friends
Put your technology to a good use. Connecting with people with a phone call can help when you need comfort from a friend or family member.
Your Favorite Treat
Be it ice cream, chocolate, gummies or all the above, it’s OK to indulge yourself once in a while. Instead of feeling guilty, savor and love every bite! You deserve it.
There is something about a sunset that gives us peace. While so many of us are rushing to finish work or get dinner on the table, the earth is giving us a great gift, a moment of pure beauty.
