EXUDE ● HAPPINESS
There are many things we can do to exude happiness. You know the old saying... ".... it's an inside job"
So here's my "expert tips" on finding your happy this week
☀️ Get some Vitamin D ☀️ stepping out in the sunshine and feeling the warmth on your skin, even just for a moment reminds is such an easy feel-good
📖 Read a book 📖 Over the weekend, I've been getting off my phone and reading more books. Its a good way to distract your mind, and get lost in some history, or fantasy..... also, keeps your hands busy 🤘🏼✌🏼👐🏽
🕸 Clear the cobwebs 🕸 De-clutter a cupboard or room in your house - goodness knows my office needs a tidy up and my house needs a slight re-jig knowing that there's a baby turning up in Spring!
🍝 Cook a meal 🍝 Cooking puts me in a totally different headspace and keeps me distracted - no thermomix here (or microwave as even that spat the dummy late last week 🙄, so I am basically a 1950's housewife, sans apron).
Spaghetti is my go-to. Also major comfort food. AND good to have in the freezer.
Even better though? Sharing it with friends and family. Lets bring back the old-fashioned dinner parties with family and friends and re-connect with one another.
🙂 Smile 🙃 It takes nothing to smile (and make eye contact) at a stranger, especially an older person in the community - you never know, it could be the only person they connect with that day (sad, but true).
🌸 Have gratitude 🌸 Even for the smallest thing. Whenever I have a "bad" day, I get into bed and think "I am loved. I have a warm bed and roof over my head....."
Well there you have it. I don't know at all if I'm helping any one of you out there, but just writing this is making me feel a better.
Share. Connect. Find your happy. Then exude it. On repeat.
(Make spaghetti, then eat. 😝)
