Boy, it’s been a rough couple of weeks, hasn’t it?
I don’t know about you, but I can use some added joy and peace in the chaos that is this month.
I found myself thumbing through a folder I have of encouraging articles and what-not, and I was reminded of a short list from one of my favourite magazines of things that are scientifically proven to increase happiness:
Now, I definitely support focusing on what brings you joy regardless of what science says about it.
But, in case you’re struggling to remember ANYTHING that brings you joy just now, it’s handy to have a few tried and tested options!
My personal favourites on the list are
Savor everyday moments
Make friends, treasure family
Say thank you like you mean it
but all of them look pretty legit to me.
And if none of them work today, there is always
Have a peaceful, hope-filled week.
And if you REALLY need a constant reminder right now, they have a handy little poster too. Complete with a cute little smiley latte!
