The little things in life

We can put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be happy and can often attach this emotion to big accomplishes – and forget about the small wins.

Perhaps you attach your happiness to career goals, sports, assignment grades or relationships. We all have things that make us feel happy but when things don’t turn out the way we planned, this can result in feelings of sadness, failure or misery. It’s important that you are able to ground yourself and find happiness in everyday accomplishments. The film ‘Soul’ really tackles this subject matter and reminds me that life is short and it’s the small things that really count towards the bigger picture.

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the little things in life that give me a warm feeling of happiness -

1. Sun baking

2. Watching herbs/plants grow from seed to plant

3. Deep conversations about life

4. A nice juice/smoothie

5. Watching a nostalgic movie

6. Fresh bed sheets

7. A home cooked meal

8. Facetime chats with my brother

9. Hot green tea

10. City light landscapes

11. A tight hug

12. Finding the perfect tasting fruit

13. Holding a pet

14. Hot showers

15. Reminiscing about old memories
