hope you all having a great week. Today I have ‘Enjoy The Little Thing’ the second instalment of my anxiety tip series. I know that I find writing these posts helpful so I really hope you get something from them too! It helps to know we’re not alone. 🙂
Enjoy The Little Things
I never thought I would say I am thankful for having anxiety, but it does have a plus side. It makes me really appreciate the small pleasures in life.
It makes you take a step back and realise what is truely important. If you’re struggling with anxiety take notice of your surroundings. The everyday things that make you smile.
Take time to notice the little things that give you joy, even for a moment. Is it your jumper keeping you warm? That peppermint tea that tastes so good? That friends comment that makes you laugh?
I have found that focusing on these things make you realise not every is bad. There is still good and it will be okay. I took the time to photograph some of the little things I noticed were good for me this past week.
The hot sun on my face on a morning walk! ☀
Taking my puppy Zoe for a walk along the river. I love watching her run around and smells all the smells! 🐾
Having a fire place in my home to warm it up. I love listening to the crackling and that burning wood smell! 🔥
My morning (now decaf) coffee! This is my favourite little treat. There is something about it that just makes me happy! ☕
Talking with my best friend! Even though she is in the UK we still take time to hang out through FaceTime, even if we are getting ready or doing something we just chat like we are in the same room! I love it! 👭
This sign in town made me laugh! I had to take a photo to share with you guys. Although this was taken a few weeks ago there was another funny one there this week!
All of these are little things that could be easily over looked but when you take time to really notice them, they can put a smile on your face.
So, I challenge you to take notice of something little that makes you smile. Whether you suffer from anxiety or not I would love for you to comment bellow with what that one little thing is! Or you can tweet, instagram or facebook me. I would love to see what awesome little things are happening in your life.
