It’s a rat race out there. Everybody’s trying to make a living (okay, some people have it easy) but still, the struggles are real. Add burnout, financial stress, slow career progression and it’s easy to feel like you’re stuck in a rut.
You can take a break from the hustles and bustles of life though. And guess what? You don’t have to search far and wide for happiness. At times, it’s the simple, little things that make life beautiful. Take a look;
Yep, nothing comes close to pure delight than getting out of a long, warm shower and sliding into crisp, clean sheets. You probably know the feeling of tucking your pillow behind your head to inhale the fresh scent. It’s ecstatic, right? That’s the one moment you can imagine everything is right in your world. Simply magical!
Outdoor Hot tub
Picture this – you’re soaking in a bubbling outdoor hot tub, sipping your favorite wine brand. The weather is right, and there’s some soothing music playing in the background. Now, that’s the perfect environment to let go and forget about your worries for a moment.
Besides, the introduction of inflatable outdoor hot tubs allows you to enjoy hours of pleasure anywhere, from your backyard to camping site. In fact, Linton’s In The Garden tested several models, and their findings are startling.
Some units, for instance, allow you to set the “mood” of your bath by changing the color of the water via integrated LED lights. That way, you can fiddle with your tub to match your demands, whether you’re in a sultry or party state of mind. Nice!
The Smell of a Baby’s Head
Yes, that’s right. Try sniffing at an infant’s head, and you’ll agree that the scent is like no other. The soft, sweet, aroma combines comfort, safety, and hope, all in a single breath. The whiff brings the sense of reassurance and calmness, even times of turbulence.
Your Favorite Tune
Music is medicine to the soul, so they say. And, listening to a song you like is satisfying. It doesn’t have to be something popular or “current,” but we all have a tune that tickles our senses. It’s the song you loop on YouTube and listen to it over and over again. It seemingly takes away the anxiety and brightness your day.
An Empty Sink
Truth be told – most people don’t like to do the dishes. There’s something about a sink full of dirty utensils that puts you off. On the flip side, an empty bowl marks the end of a workday and ushers in a time to relax.
With a silently vibrating dishwasher in the background, you can keep up with the Kardashians, or write a blog post peacefully, knowing that you won’t wake up to dirty plates and cups.
Dancing with your Little Monster
Kids are happy souls. Sure, they’re not the most self-conscious of beings, but there’s something special about them. Try dancing with your tot one of these fine days – it’s one of the most beautiful (and fulfilling) things in the world. You’ll love how the child takes advantage of the available space to cartwheel, twirl and jump to the beat.
A Text from your Loved One
You’ve had a long day at work. You’re tired and can’t wait to get home. Then, as you’re about to sleep, you get a text message from your mum, wife, sister or boyfriend reminding you of their undying love for you. The thought of knowing that someone truly cares for you is sustaining and encourages you to face another day. And the beauty of it is that you can reply in a second.
Dark chocolate offers a host of health benefits, but that’s not all there is. It melts smoothly on your tongue, coats your mouth and leaves your taste buds satisfied like no other food can. Plus, you can have some dark chocolate every day without the guilt of overindulging.
The Bottom Line
You don’t have to spend wads of cash to find satisfaction in life. You only need to look around for some inspiration. So, share a joke, buy a new pair of socks to give your feet little hugs and kiss your dog once in a while. Don’t forget to cross off your to-do-list. De-clutter your living space to let in some fresh air. One more thing – be sure to open your window for a second during winter because that’s how it feels to be a rebel!
