It's The Little Things

Friday, June 19, 2015

Very recently I've been struggling to focus on the positive things that make me happy and only really seeing the negatives.  Now this happens from time to time as it comes hand in hand with my anxiety - I know that but I am always looking out for ways to help override that negativity and a way to help keep my anxiety under control.

Now when I first started this blog my little sub-heading was something along the lines of 'It's the little things' as I wanted to remind myself and others that there are little things that may seem insignificant to others but can switch around your mood and make you feel super happy (the little things I would be blogging about that made me happy).

So I thought I would remind myself (and hopefully a few of you out there) of the little things that can perk up your mood even though they may seem very little.

  • New socks
  • Bubble baths
  • Clothes fresh out of the dryer
  • Fresh bedding
  • The sun still shining as you're leaving work
  • Your favourite drink in your favourite cup
  • The sound a can of pop makes when you open it
  • Back tickles
  • Having your hair played with
  • Finding money you forgot you had
  • Popping bubble wrap
  • Duvet days
  • Disney movies
  • The smell of baking
  • Dresses with pockets
  • The little crunches of a guinea pig eating a pepper
  • When there is just the right amount of drink in a bottle to perfectly fill the glass
  • Rainbows
  • Summer breeze
  • New car smell
  • Ice cold drink when you're super thirsty
  • Taking your bra off at the end of the day
  • Waking up early and realising it's the weekend
  • The way your dog greets you when they haven't seen you all day
  • Popping candy
  • Unexpected hugs
  • The smell of rain when it hasn't rained in a while
  • Fresh flowers
  • The cool spot in the bed when you're too warm
  • Books you can't put down
  • Shooting stars
  • Fluffy blankets
  • Forehead kisses
  • The sound of rain on the window
  • Reading something nice someone wrote about you
  • Uncontrollable laughter
  • Watching a film for the first time in a long time and refeeling all the feels
  • Someone cancelling something you didn't really want to do anyway
  • When unplanned nights turn out to be the best
  • Being the only people in the cinema
  • When you get to the till and then item is cheaper than you thought
  • Payday
  • Clothes that fit perfectly 
  • Fortune cookies
  • Free Wi-Fi 
  • Matching underwear
  • Feeling refreshed after a nap
  • When people are on time
  • Bonfires
  • Having the volume on an even number
So there they are, I think there are 50 altogether.  What are the little things that make you happy?
