Day 6 of 31 Days of Wellbeing…
Hope your list writing went well…even if the list was in your head or had one item on it!
I am actually going to ask you to write another list today. Please don’t stop reading now, I promise this list is going to be different and not a list of chores.
It is time to write a list of what makes you happy.Writing the list can also make you sometimes realise that you are spending too much of your time doing the things you don’t really love…perhaps because you feel like you should. I know I am guilty of saying ‘yes’ to lots of different plans when what I really would love to do is snuggle on the sofa with my dog! Make sure you are writing down activities which you can do often – ‘travelling the world’ would be more of a goal than something you can aim to do often…unless you are lucky enough to be that wealthy!
The most important part comes after you have written this list of course, as what you need to do is make sure you are doing these things as often as possible. Do more of what makes you happy – your mental health will improve so much because you are showing yourself you care enough to do what you love and enjoy.
My Happy List:
- Chilling with future hubby and dog on our very comfy sofa
- Walking in beautiful surroundings
- Weekends away in the countryside
- Eating good food and drinking good wine
- Dancing to great songs in bars (not everyday I should add!)
- Getting an early night
- Practising yoga
- Spending weekend days with friends and family
- Reading in bed
- Writing blog posts 🙂
Enjoy writing your list!
