What makes you smile? Laugh? Fill you with energy? For some, it’s a walk barefoot through fresh cut grass. For another, it’s a spin on a roller coaster, a solo movie date, or a nap in a hammock on a hot summer day.
So… when was the last time you did something that makes you happy? When is the last time you just took a break?
Eating healthy is huge, but adding happiness amplifies your health when you have good healthy eating down!
If it’s been awhile, consider this: happiness lowers stress levels, increases immune system function, and lowers your risk of disease. It also makes life easier. Makes you look forward to tomorrow. Makes it easier to choose healthy foods!
The Magic Formula for Daily Pleasure
Doing one pleasurable thing per day (or more!) is the most powerful antidote for gray, boring, or stressful days. Try this:
- Make an “I love” list. List everything that you enjoy – nothing is too small or too large. If you enjoy it, get it on the list.
- Take a look at how you spend your days. When could you fit in a little pleasure? Perhaps you could leave the office at lunch to walk in the park? Maybe you could play your favorite music while doing the dishes? Book yourself a massage this weekend? Important: put it in your calendar!
- Repeat daily, or more often, as needed.
