Daily life is busy and stressful. It’s important to take time to enjoy the little things to make you feel more at peace with the world and yourself.
Sitting by the water
There’s something about the sound of a moving water source that makes you feel so right.
Cooking A Delicious Meal
Few things are more satisfying than cooking and eating a delicious and nutritious meal that you made yourself. I’ll take that over eating a Big Mac any day.
Playing A Game With A Child
Having a tea party, or coloring with a kid reminds you of how simple being a child was.
Smoking A Fat Bowl Of Really Dank Herb
The best way to relax after a long day of working for the man. Smoke some dank buds and feel your problems melt away.
Sitting In Your Garden
After a crappy day, try sitting in your garden and enjoying the fruits of your labor. If it’s quiet enough, you’ll swear you can hear your plants growing.
Petting A Kitty
Petting a soft, fluffy kitty is one of those experiences that can’t be replicated. Until they start scratching and clawing at you, that is.
Reading A Good Book
Reading a book is a favorite pastime of mine. It’s the best way to travel without leaving your house. This is great for those of us who don’t have the means to travel.
Putting Down Your Phone
Many of us are addicted to our smart phones. Remember to put your phone down every so often and remember that there is life outside of screens.
Eating Fruit Straight From The Tree
Nothing tastes sweeter and more satisfying than eating fruit straight from the tree, vine, or bush. Skip the produce aisle and go straight for the source!
Lying In Some Freshly Cut Grass
One of the signature scents of summer is the smell of freshly cut grass. The next time you mow your lawn, take some time to roll around in the grass afterward. You’ll feel just like a kid again.
Kissing Someone You Love
Kissing and the activities that sometimes accompany it, release feel-good chemicals oxytocin and dopamine in your brain, which is why we enjoy showing affection!
Meditation is a great way to stay in touch with yourself and the world around you. If your chakras are feeling drained, then engaging in meditation will instantly recharge them!
Riding A Bike
Riding a bike is not only an effective way to get around town, it’s also a great way to unwind after a long day working for the man. Hit up your favorite bike trail and feel the wind in your hair.
Going On A Nature Hike
For those times when you just need to get away from it all, there’s nothing like going on a hike to your favorite home away from home!
Playing With A Dog
Dogs are always so happy and full of energy, it’s hard not to be in a good mood when you’re playing with a puppy.
Touching A Fuzzy Sweater
Though a small thing, touching a fuzzy sweater will make you feel warm and fuzzy too!
Eating Mushrooms On A Mountain
There’s nothing like eating mushrooms and running around the woods to make you feel one with nature.
Lighting incense is great for any occasion. Smelling incense is like meditation for the olfactory senses.
Taking A Break From Social Media
Sometimes all you need to do to make yourself feel better is get away from social media and reconnect with the people around you.
The Sound Of Silence
It’s a loud and crazy world we live in. Recharge yourself by getting away from the busy sounds of the city by going somewhere calm and tranquil. Pull out your ear buds and enjoy the sounds of the birds singing and wind blowing through the trees!
Ah, don’t you feel better now? Life is busy and stressful; sometimes you just need to take time to stop and enjoy the little things in life. Now you feel ready to face the world again!
