I saw a great quote the other day, I can’t actually reference it because I didn’t do my usual screen shot, but it really resonated with me. I love quotes that point out the most simple, everyday things and make you look at life from a different perspective.
“Write two lists, a list of your day to day routine and a list of what makes you happy. Adjust the first list accordingly”
Reading this just reminds me how much I go into auto pilot mode in my day to day life. You shouldn’t have to take time out to make yourself happy and indulge – obviously that’s a lovely thing to do but if it’s something that you have to make time for then you usually won’t do it. Why not adjust the things you already do to bring you happiness on the reg?
Here’s a few things on my list and what I do to make myself happier:
Breakfast – I get up slightly earlier to make a lovely healthy and warm breakfast. It sets me up for the day and doesn’t actually take much longer than making a slice of toast!
Drive to work – I make myself a cup of tea to have on the way whilst I listen to Nick Grimshaws show – I find him so hilarious and there’s nothing like laughing hysterically on the way to work to put you in a good mood!
Drive home – I listen to queen bee – she helps me to leave work at work and put my sassy hat on
Bedtime – This one I find the hardest, I try to go to bed earlier and switch of from social media. I’ve started making time to read before I sleep, I love reading but never seem to do it anymore
Do you make time for things that bring you happiness on a daily basis? If not what are you going to change?
