Somehow I totally spaced on putting together this post from last summer (I blame pregnancy brain), but it’s finally here. My bad! We asked readers to chime in on what exactly makes them happy and there were so many amazing answers. I always love hearing from readers (thankful for you!) and it’s so interesting seeing the different things that bring out happiness – and also that there are lots of recurring things in common. So many simple things that we can all bring to our daily lives. Read on for what makes this community happy…
I’m the happiest when I’m successful doing things I love!
For me it would be in nature, with my family and preferably surrounded by lots of dogs. HAHA!
There are 4 things I do to make myself feel happy: get outside, catch up with/hug someone I love, read something, and move my body.
I’m happiest when I wake up at 4am and begin working on my motivational blog. I usually start my day off with 15 min meditating on scripture, then I read a book,then I write my motivational blog. Early mornings I’m energized and my creative juice is flowing.
Happiness for me comes in small forms & big! Whether it’s a warm cup of coffee in the morning while having “me” time and reading blogs, but also planning something to bring all the people I love (friends + family) together by entertaining! I’ve never NOT been happy after working out! Take time to do things for yourself & lastly, GIVE. Giving to others whether tangible or intangible.
I love to walk outside, do a face or hair mask, read, and play with my dog! I also like to write down “happies” from my day each night and I share a few of them in a blog post at the end of the week!
I am happiest around the people that make my happy. Also just going for long drives with the music turned loud!
