Jan 15, 2014 | Other | 4 comments

I was thinking about what I should do for this Wellness Wednesday, and it occurred to me- the most simple and the most important part of Wellness- Happiness. So I set out to make a list of 25  30 33 things that make me happy, big or small. As you can tell it is addictive to think of things that make you happy and I couldn’t stop coming up with more things once I started!

It was amazing how happy it made me feel just to put together this list! which makes me realize how simple it can be to be happy and to turn your mood around- I know that I will be coming back to this blog post anytime I feel down 🙂 and I would HIGHLY recommend making a list like this yourself! 🙂 – if it was a youtube tag – I would tag everyone to do this!

Here we go:

1. Listening to a good audio book while doing crafts :): I recommend the Harry Potter series read by Jim Dale, and anything by John Green

 (in this pic mom and I were listening to the Triwizard Tournament)

2. Really creative blogs that I love- TOO MANY TO LIST HERE- I will do a blog post on my favs soon!

3. Petting random cats – you know that cat that comes up to you on the sidewalk- I will flat-out sit down and pet it for 1/2 an hour. 

4. Keeping my nails painted & really bright crazy currently:


5. Walking in the woods with my dad 🙂
