Life in general can sometimes take its toll causing us to overlook all of the wonderful moments we have been blessed with. it’s important to enjoy each and every minute of life taking time to recognize all of the beautiful moments in each day.  These are five ways that I find useful in finding pleasure in even the smallest of things.  

Start Your Day With A Grateful Heart

Your thoughts and attitude in the morning will set the tone for your entire day.  Wake up and take the time to take in all of your blessings and give thanks for the smallest of things.  Each day I begin giving thanks for a new day and for that first cup of coffee that helps get me going.

Allow Yourself Plenty Of Time

Nothing throws my day off more than getting off to a late start and feeling rushed.  Whether going to work, school or even homeschooling, prepare the night before to ensure you can start your day on time. Believe me, managing your time helps tremendously.

Don’t Be Hard On Yourself

Life happens and not all days will be good and not all memories will be fond.  Forgive yourself, move on and promise to do better next time. 

Let Go Of Your Worries

Worrying never solves anything, in fact it only adds stress to situations. Accept what is and to let go of the things that you can’t control.

Remember To Focus On The Present

Take a few moments each day to just stop and live in that very moment.  Set a reminder on your phone if needed to take a few minutes for yourself.

Take A Soothing Bubble Bath

Even if only 2-3 times a week.  Use this time to relax and reflect on everything that has taken place throughout your day.

Try your best not to let all that has gone wrong in your day consume you but rather focus on the beautiful simplicities of life. Live each day to the fullest in whatever way that means for you. Enjoy the sunrise, make time to watch the sunset and pay attention to the little things that we often take for granted.
