10 Things That Bring Me Happiness

by - 17:50:00

Hey guys, hope you've had a good day! So I've seen this blog post written a lot and I find it's always interesting to see what things make people happy. There are the general ones that a lot of people say but sometimes there some fun quirky things that make people happy. Therefore I felt I'd leave aside the usual, family, friends, jobs etc and list some more unusual ones. By the way I'm not saying that my family and friends don't bring me happiness, of course they do! But just to mix it up a little. 

Banana Milkshake. Whenever I go somewhere for a drink and I see they're selling milkshakes I will happily have one. Also, I always pick Banana flavour, it's my all time favourite milkshake, even if I had a choice from all the fancy ones you can get now, I'd still tell you Banana is my favourite. I'd say it deserves to be on my happiness list as I enjoy drinking it therefore it makes me happy. 

When you want to listen to music and you pick something just right. I don't know if this is just me but you know when you're in the mood to listen to some music and you're searching for something to play and you pick an artist and it's just the type of music you want to hear. It's quite hard to explain, but I hope that makes a little sense at least. But I find when you listen to some music most of the time it makes you feel happy and chills you out. When you're in a bad mood I'd say listening to music is a good way to cheer yourself up. 

Lying in bed watching Youtube videos. Sometimes you wake up and you don't want to leave your bed, but at the same time it can be boring just lying there not doing anything and also can make you feel tired and then for the rest of the day you just feel tired and that can be a horrible feeling. So what I like to do is lie in bed for a bit, maybe an hour if I'm feeling super lazy - which is often... and just have a look at my subscription videos. It's fun and makes me laugh, and if you know someone else that watches the same Youtubers as you then you now have things to discuss!

Generally just having a busy day. I know this might sound odd, I don't mean just being super busy with chores or cleaning but having a day out, or even running some of your errands. For one it always feels good to check off your to do list, and two it feels good to have accomplished a lot in a day. And of course the most obvious reason if you spend your day doing something fun that you're enjoying then it tends to make you happy. I find when I have days where I don't do anything it just feels like a waste of a day for me and I usually find that I end up feeling quite negative that day. 

Playing a game that I'm enjoying. I added that I'm enjoying because sometimes if I'm bored I end up playing a game that I'm not enjoying but it's helping with not making me bored. I feel like I only end up enjoying a game when I'm in the mood to play that particular game, so when I am it makes me happy. Also when I play games with other people it's also lots of fun, so playing a game that I'm finding enjoyable makes me happy. 

Writing blog posts outside in the sun. As you can see I've made sure a lot of my answers are very specific... but when it's a really sunny and warm day it makes me so happy to sit outside and write a blog posts. I mean sitting out in the sun doing things generally make me happy, I'd even find it happy to sit in the sunshine filling out job applications. There's just something about sitting outside while its warm and sunny that always brightens up your day. 

Making cakes. I've always enjoyed making cakes, especially when the finished cake or cakes come out great... I'll admit that doesn't happen often, but they usually always taste really good so I guess that's all that matters. As well if you end up breaking a bit of the cake when getting it out of the tin its easy enough to hide it by putting icing or butter cream over it... it's like it never happened. And as well if other people try and enjoy it that's always a plus as well.

Being around people as well as having time to myself. It's enjoyable and good to be around people every so often, and especially having days out it's always fun to have people to share the experience with. Also it's nice sometimes to have time to myself, do my own thing without having other people around. So both of these things bring me happiness.

Watching animal videos. I know this isn't just me, but picture this. You're scrolling through Facebook or Tumblr and you come across so many photos, gifs, or videos of the cutest animals doing cute/stupid/funny things. It just makes you so happy doesn't it?? It also makes me want every single animal I see.

Lastly, I'd say going to sleep in a freshly made bed that's just been washed. It always feels so much better when you lie down in your bed ready to sleep with fresh bed sheets, for some reason it just feels 10 times more comfortable, and you just get the best nights sleep. If it was easy enough to wash bed sheets every single day and for it not to be costly for bills or the environment then I would love to have fresh bed sheets every night. Although, maybe if we did do that every day we wouldn't feel the difference?

I found that it's actually quite hard to list ten... now I don't know if that says something about me, maybe it does. Maybe I need to try new things or maybe I just wasn't thinking hard enough. Maybe I just haven't had enough life experiences yet, after all, I am only 21!

What are some of the things that bring you happiness?
