A little trick I like to use to make my days much more pleasant is to find little, simple pleasures and include them throughout my day.
Theyâ€™re not big things, but they each simple pleasure can translate to a great day if you use them right.
So in the morning, I might have a cup of (blows) tea, and sip it slowly to enjoy it fully. I might turn the radio to listen to the local news in Dominica. I might watch the sun come up from my apartment window, and marvel at the world in pastel colors.
These are little things, and donâ€™t really cost a thing (or not much, anyway), but they are tremendously satisfying. I have just described some of the things I might do to start off my day, but the possibilities are endless, and can be done throughout the day.
I thought it would be fun to compile a list of my simple pleasures I enjoy nearly everyday, to give you all some ideas of what I mean, and to spark other ideas of your own. Of course, you can probably come up with a thousand more, and it should also be noted that one personâ€™s pleasures arenâ€™t always pleasures for others.
