What would happen if you became so wrapped up in your daily activities that you never took the time to relax or enjoy the simple pleasures in life? It is often said that the best things in life are free. Here is a list of 9 simple (free) pleasures to help you enjoy life a little more.
· Watching a sunrise/sunset
· Gazing up at the night sky on a clear warm night- it was early morning when I let the dog out the sliding door into the backyard to do her business. I sat on the stairs and waited. At 6:00am, the sky was dark enough to be considered night and clear enough for me to gaze upon a dozen stars. In the still of the morning crickets chirped to a symphony all their own. Calmness.
· Sleeping in on a rainy day
· Finding money you tucked away and forgot about
· Having a good laugh – a deep hearty laugh can cleanse your
· The feeling after a good workout
· Spending time with a friend reminiscing
· Holding hands with someone you love
· Making someone smile – maybe someone you know is having a stressful day; you could do a good deed for them.
