At this time of year I think it’s very easy for people to feel a bit down and forget how it is the simplest things in life that make it all worthwhile.
We’re now still in the darker months of the year, only now it is after the buzz of Christmas and New Year with the reality of work and school coming back round. I think this makes everyone feel a bit down and normally this leads to people booking holidays because well we always need something to look forward to, or probably spending more money to “treat ourselves”
Don’t get me wrong, my holidays normally get booked in February for the summer and I also tend to buy new boots or whatever else after a bad day at work but one thing I have grown to realise is the simplest things can make a bad day better 😊
So what are the simple things that bring happiness to my life?
A good cup of tea
Fresh bed sheets
A hug from my niece
Losing myself in a book
Heavy rain on a night that I’m cosy in bed
My Saturday morning run
Going out for breakfast
Getting back in the house to the warm after a long winter walk
My mum making my favourite dinner
A delivery arriving for me
A hot bubble bath
The first steps onto fallen snow ❄️
Belly laughing with friends
My favourite song playing on the radio
These are only a few that seem more relevant for this time of year ☃️ Remembering these simple things helps me put things into perspective and realise that a bad day isn’t a bad day but a bad few minutes that I let continue for too long.
Would love to hear other simple things people love in their life 😊
