Simple highs

Today’s post is a list of those really simple things in life that can make you so incredibly happy. Some of them are free, some of them cost you some time but all of them are easy to achieve. So why not try including one or more of these into your week for guaranteed joy?!

Enjoy a picnic ~ whether it’s in your local park or even in your back garden, there’s something about laying a blanket on the grass and sitting cross legged that is such fun.

Pretty china ~ treat yourself to a beautiful bone china cup or mug for your early morning cuppa.

Getting a hug ~ from someone you care about is priceless.

Fresh flowers ~ pick some flowers from your garden or select a few special blooms from your local florist and bring nature indoors. A bunch of bright flowers is instant joy in my books!

Freshly laundered linen ~ there’s nothing nicer than the smell of clean bedding, crisp white sheets, heaven!

A bike ride ~ a quick spin on your bike is also guaranteed exhilaration. Hire a bike for the day if you don’t have one, it’s well worth it to feel the wind through your hair as you fly down a hill.

Laughter ~ with an old friend especially when it’s the uncontrollable variety that makes your face hurt, is so good for the soul!

And that’s it, my Tuesday list of happy highs for you. I hope you enjoyed them! Do you have any activities that always make you smile? I’d love to know.

    Lana, I have had soooo little time for blogging lately but I must say when I stop by here for a visit I am always blown away over your beautiful posts. You are one the best Lana, truly. You have such a great eye.

    I think a top styling job is coming your way soon.

    Love, Mon

    I liked that post very much, I agree-drinking tea from real china is something totally different than from ordinary mug:)
