What makes you smile? Laugh? Have butterflies in your belly?
For some, it’s a walk barefoot through the grass or sand. For another, it’s a spin on a roller coaster, a solo movie date, a cup a tea by the fire, or a perfectly ripe mango...
Did you know that feeling happy lowers stress levels, increases immune system function, and lowers your risk of disease? It also makes life easier.
So, how about applying the Magic Formula for Daily Pleasure starting today?
Doing one pleasurable thing per day (or more!) is the most powerful antidote for gray, boring, or stressful days. Try this:
Make an “I love” list. List everything that you enjoy—nothing is too small or too large. If you enjoy it, get it on the list.
Pick 1 or more and commit to doing it.
Take a look at how you spend your days. When could you fit in a little pleasure? Perhaps you could leave the office at lunch to walk in the park? Maybe you could play your favorite music while doing the dishes? Book yourself a massage this weekend?
Repeat daily—or more often, as needed.
So… when was the last time you did something that makes YOU happy?
To get you started down the road of pleasure, give this delicious recipe a try:
