Take a Quiet Moment
Allow yourself the pleasure of taking in the sunrise, or enjoying some of the beauty in the world.
Get Yourself Some Rest
Things seem to come into perspective after a good night’s sleep, and being well-rested can give you the fortitude to handle difficult situations with more ease.
Get in a Workout
Exercising releases endorphins. Endorphins make you feel better. Additionally, exerting some energy can be a great way to work through and release some tension.
Be Kind to Another
Somehow doing something nice for someone else always makes you feel good. So, surprise someone on their birthday with a cake, or shop for an elderly neighbor. You get the drift.
Go on a Vacation
We all need a break once in a while, and sometimes a change in scenery is just the ticket.
Work in the Garden
Being outside in the sunshine can lift your mood, and gardening gives you some time to think and enjoy the fresh air.
Go out and Play
Everybody deserves a little down time. Make some time to go out and have some fun. Do what ever it is you enjoy!
Happiness is a Hug
Nothing is more soothing than the warm embrace of someone that you love.
