Happiness doesn’t have to be about bucket lists and traveling the world. It doesn’t have to be a scheduled happiness formula either. Sometimes it can just be the little things in life.

Meditation /Prayer / Quiet Time

It has been proven that spending 10-15 minutes a day in meditation has a beneficial effect. If you have a stressful life, this might be the thing for you. For those of you that are not particularly religious or spiritual, taking a few minutes of quiet time can have just as positive of an effect. Use this time to focus on deep breathing and letting the calmness take over.

Coffee or Tea Time

Most mornings I have to rush to get my coffee down before my little one gets up. I love it when I can take some time out of my day to slowly enjoy a cup of coffee. Take your time to make your coffee or tea however you like it. Pick your favorite cup to drink from to make the experience a bit nicer.

Take A Nap

I know that with long to-do lists, work, chores, and taking care of kids that there just isn’t enough time to get everything done.  To make sure we fit it all in, we often end up sacrificing sleep. While we might get one or two items from our list finished, it isn’t a good habit to start. Lack of sleep will catch up to you. Do yourself a favor and take a short little nap when you get the opportunity.

Pick Up Some Fresh Flowers 

I absolutely love fresh flowers. Even just looking at them at the store makes me feel a little bit better inside. I know that fresh flowers can be a splurge, but if you have room in your budget, they are worth every penny. One way to save is to pick up one type of flower or mix two instead of buying a pre-made bouquet in the floral section.



I really enjoy reading, but find that I don’t have as much time for it as I would like. I try to find a few minutes to read an article or page through a magazine. I get to learn something new while taking a few moments for myself.

Listen To Music

I am actually not much for music. I didn’t really listen to it growing up and only started really listening when I was in college. For some people, music is a real escape. It can help elevate your mood and if you dance a bit, that doesn’t hurt either.

Home Spa Day

I talked about my favorite home spa day products a little while ago. If you have a bubble bath or aromatherapy product at home already, go ahead and use them. While bath salts and masks can be a nice addition to a spa day, you can have a relaxing time without buying anything. Take a nice hot bath and relax. No tub? A shower can be just as relaxing.

I am already thinking about how I might try to do a couple of these things today, while my little one naps. Which of these will you do today?

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
    before. I am sure this article has touched all the internet viewers, its really really fastidious
    piece of writing on building up new website. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for
    me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
