I feel like I’ve had more than a few conversations lately in which the person I’m talking to is majorly stressed. It makes me sad, because while I understand and agree with the importance of work, I do think there ultimately needs to be joy and balance above that. And although I know there’s much more to it than that, I’ve realized the importance of finding some simple things that can be done to perk up your day at a moment’s notice. For me, that’s a walk in the sun, a coffee and pastry date with a friend, and treating myself to flowers (bonus points if they’re on sale!) at Whole Foods. What are some of the little things that make you happy?
