Today I thought about writing about what makes me happy. So I rounded up five things that give me back new energy and cheer me up, when I’m in a bad mood.
Probably everybody knows it. If I hear a song I really like, it lifts my spirit. No matter if I want it to or not.
Yes, I know… Sadly… I have to confess I’m a total chocolate lover. I’m one of the person you can give a spoon and they will just eat out of the nutella jar. Even I already wished very, very often it didn’t, eating chocolate gives me back my smile.
- Going outside
Especially if the sun is shining, going outside always calms me down. Seeing all those different things shifts my focus and without knowing it I start thinking about something different. When I realize later what happend my bad mood is usually already gone. 🙂
Exercising has always helped me to get my thoughts sorted and to get an more objective point of view after rows or situations in which I felt treated unfairly. It helps me to take a step back and to see, that there are far more important things to life. Plus I feel really great after finishing my workout. Maybe I’m also happier afterwards, because I don’t have any energy left to be annoyed.
I don’t know why, but flowers always make my smile. The smell seems to shut out my bad thoughts. 😀 Especially when I buy new ones or my mum brings me some. Now in spring everything seems even more colorful and intensive.
What makes you happy?
