Taking Pleasure From The Little Things

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life it can be difficult to sit down and appreciate the little things. Whether that be waking up before your alarm and feeling wide awake or scrolling through Pinterest and feeling really inspired. Today I am sharing with you the little things that make me happy. 

Music | I can't tell you how much I'm loving blasting out my favourite Paolo Nutini album, Sunny Side Up, at the moment. It instantly puts me in a good mood and if I'm feeling in a bit of a slump, I know that this will motivate me to start cracking on with work. 

Stationery | If you're a stationary hoarder like myself, then investing in a new notepad or finding a high street gem is a great way to put a smile on my face. Copper paperclips have been a new obsession of mine and I have accumulated over several dozen of them. I have been eyeing up several notepads at the moment as I am looking to organise my life a little better and this one from Rifle Paper Co is gorgeous and comes in a pack of 2 - Bonus!

Walking | Whether it's a late night walk to catch Pokemon or an early one to grab some breakfast, going out for a walk when there's barely anyone about is a favourite of mine. It's peaceful and can be a great way to clear your mind too. 

When The Season Starts To Change | Okay, so we're not quite in Autumn yet, but I already love watching the seasons change, especially the weather. I find Spring goes into Summer in a blink of an eye, so the particular months I love seeing change are Summer to Autumn and Winter to Spring. Either the flowers are blossoming and you can see little lambs popping up in every other field or the leaves are starting to go crisp and the air is slightly cooler. 

Clean Sheets | There is no better feeling than having fresh bedding on when you've just shaved your legs. Making the bed every morning is another favourite of mine and one that hasn't become a chore at all. 

Comfy Loungewear | Even if it's an old pair of tracksuit bottoms or your favourite set of PJ's, taking your bra off, removing your makeup and slipping into your comfy loungewear is a little thing that I will never not take pleasure from. I personally love a thick, wooly jumper on colder days as I can easily tuck them into jeans and feel very snug. 

Re-Watching Your Favourite TV Show | I personally love watching re-runs of the Great British Bake Off or Friday Night Dinner to lift my mood and make me laugh. If TV shows aren't your thing, then I would recommend re-watching or re-reading your favourite movie series or book. I personally love watching the Harry Potters on repeat or delving into my Sophie Kinsella Can You Keep A Secret? book.
What little things make you happy?
