It can be hard to find new and exciting things in your daily life when you have been confined to the same space for months on end. Finding the beauty in the everyday can be challenging, but it can help you feel a little happier. In times of stress and uncertainty, it becomes an act of defiance to enjoy and be fulfilled by little things. So we took it upon ourselves to find and share some of our joy triggers to perhaps inspire you to find your own.
Coffee in your favorite mug. That moment when you take the first sip of coffee in the morning and you can properly start your day.
A nice plant from your daily walk. Looking at greenery is the best way to enjoy a walk and unburden your mind for a little while.
Sunlight through a window. How amazing is it that this particular sun ray travelled millions of kilometers to land right through your window and into your home?
Coffee table books. They are essential decoration pieces, but how often do we really flip through them?
Freshly made bed. Cluttered bed, cluttered mind. Decluttered bed, calm and inviting environment that allows you to relax for a second.
Your pet, your muse. It always nice to look at your pet and try to figure out what’s going on in that little mind of theirs.
A well-organized desk. Everything in your desk should serve a practical or inspirational purpose. When everything is in place, you might even want to do some work in there.
A journal entry. Looking back through your journals is a nice reminder that you have learned and grown, and you’re not the same person you were yesterday.
Homemade cocktail drink. A little treat to yourself, made just how you like it and right in the comfort of your own home.
Your bathroom shelf. This might be a Pinterest-induced pleasure, but I find comfort in the visual display of my skin-care routine.
Inspiring screensavers. A quote, your favorite piece of art, a picture of the best trip ever, the landscape of a city you’ve always wanted to visit… whichever works best for you.
A flower bouquet. A nice flower arrangement lights up every room, smells better than the best perfume, and brings nature a little closer to home.
