    Great list! I love drinking hot water πŸ˜€

    This is a really nice list. I need to actually do some of those things πŸ™‚

    May 22, 2015 at 1:28 am

    This is such a great list! I feel like I’ve gotten better at a lot of these things over the past couple years, but still struggle with eating healthy and being more mindful. I want to try getting into yoga or meditation, because I’ve struggled with anxiety before, so I think that would be really helpful to my overall health and happiness πŸ™‚

    Ditto to almost all that! We’re running in the same vein πŸ˜‰ Having a bowl of berries with chia seeds now and nodding to the food points. Love how you’re pursuing your dreams and doing well in it though it’s not always a bed of roses. Keep exploring, keep discovering! – Ms E.

    I think being kind to others and giving more than taking is a great advice to become happier and healthier emotionally, although it is still something I am learning! Thanks for all the other tips too!

    Great advice!

    I love the fact that you mentioned cleaning out your makeup bag. Whenever I declutter mine, I automatically feel better about everything else in my life as well. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it! Also I am happiest when I am eating healthy and not drinking a lot. Alcohol really messes with my system.

    Simple and straight to the point. The spa session sounds great! πŸ˜€

    May 17, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    These are all good recommendations! I’ve been trying to drink less and eat better. I usually get more active in the summer. I agree though that “time doesn’t wait” and I should seize the day more.


    May 17, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    I couldn’t be more in love with this post. Just what I needed today!! I especially need to focus on eating all the good stuff you mentioned… I’ve been filling my stomach with junk food lately and it’s not making me feel great! Thanks for this post!

    Lovely to see such a wise list that is ageless and doesn’t define you by ability, & how much money you earn, where you live or what you do. Thank you for the reminders.

    Totally agree with these points – I really need to up my vegetable intake, it’s been a bit lacking as of late!


    May 17, 2015 at 8:48 am

    Yes true, “Let Go” is the best way to be happy πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Enjoying the little things in life and appreciate the positive things can definitely be an instant boost of happiness πŸ™‚ Which speaking of, I am already planning my next travel plans because my recent first-time trip to Europe was amazing!
