I recently read about finding your happy place. A place you can just step away from the world for a while and be relaxed and restful.
Do you know that you don’t actually need a physical place to go but can find your happy place within your mind?
For me my happy place is sitting in the sun with my eyes closed and just thinking about all the good things in my life. My happy place is found in creating happy thoughts.
3 easy ways to creating your happy place
There are many ways you can create your ‘happy place’ so here are 3 easy ways to start.
1. Revisit your good times
Looking back through photos of good times can evoke happiness and take our minds out of the everyday for a while. I love looking at old family get-togethers or travels that my husband and I have taken. Seeing other people laughing automatically makes you smile and feel better.
2. Breathe and be silent
Take a few moments to breathe slowly and also to be silent. Let your mind dwell on something or someone that always brings happiness to you. It might be seeing a beautiful beach or sunrise or for me, it might be thinking of my grandson and the joy he brings to my life. Earlier this year, I started to change my morning routine to take a few moments of reflection on the good things in my life. It certainly makes me feel happy and ready for the day.
3. Create a relaxing space just for you
Setting up an area at home which is ‘your space’ where you can take time to relax and reflect could become your happy place. It could be inside or in the garden – anywhere that makes you feel contented.
Do you have a happy place? I’d love to hear about it.
