If you have a busy lifestyle it’s always good to stand still for a moment and wind down. Also if you have a busy lifestyle you probably don’t have time to have a consecutive moment every day to really take the time to wind down. That’s why I love the phrase remember the things that make you happy. You can do this whenever and wherever you are. Just remember the things that make you happy and really feel them making you happy at that exact moment. This helps me to find a relaxing moment (or moment to wind down) within all the business that goes around during the day. So now let’s move on to five things that make me happy.
I always love it when the sun is shining and especially if I’m cycling to work early in the morning. I really feel like I can relax and enjoy my cycling trip to work. I also love to enjoy and experience the sun if I’m outside. For example when we have lunch outside the office it’s really nice to just take in the energy of the sun and enjoy it.
You were probably wondering when the flowers on the feature picture fell into place. Well here it is… I just love flowers and they make me happy. The picture at the top of this post is shows a bouquet that was a centre piece at a wedding. I could also spend ages in a flower shop! I just makes me happy!
Freshly mowed grass
Just the scent of freshly mowed grass also makes me happy. Especially when it’s a little damp early in the morning. It reminds me of the smell when we go camping during spring and summer. I also think that a lot of things that make you happy are related to memories. What do you think about that?
Staying in the scent category… I love the smell of sawdust and recently processed wood. I remember as a kid I was really happy when they put new wood chips on the playground in primary school. And during high school I loved the smell in the wood processing classes. I don’t know why, but I’ve always really liked that smell. Anyone else joining me here?
And last but certainly not least… music. I think I have a song for every emotion I have. I love to listen to piano music and youtubers that cover songs on their piano. It just makes me relaxed, so I used to listen this kind of music a lot when I had a stressful university assignment. I remember during my Python programming course I used to listen to piano music and piano covers all the time.
I would love to hear all the things that make you happy and might be able to help you relax during the day. What do you do to take a moment during the day to relax yourself?
