Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers and her bits and chunks of joy list, I’ve started one of my own, which I plan/hope to continually add to. The idea is to have a list of things that you love and that fill you up for those moments of time when you may usually turn to checking Facebook, email, or Instagram yet again.
Just a few minutes:
Write a short card to send to a friend.
Make and enjoy a cup of tea.
Add some things to my gratitude list.
Pick some flowers to brighten up my home.
Mix up a quick scrub to gift or enjoy myself.
Call or text a friend.
30 minutes or a bit more:
Read a book. Sitting outside and reading a book is even better!
Bake or make something.
Play the piano.
Plant some flowers or garden.
Out and about:
Go for a walk.
Pick up some flowers and bring to a friend.
Browse a bookstore.
So now the trick is, to actually do these things and break the habits I already have in place in order to create some new ones. What’s on your list?
