How can you go to a “happy place” in your mind when you struggle to remember moments of calm, peace, and happiness? Create a “happy place” today! We MUST take time for ourselves to create these moments because they do not always happen on their own.
Here are some ideas: take a bath with candlelight, pray, meditate (plenty of meditation apps out there!), stretch your body, go for a walk, watch a comedy, smell beautiful oils/perfumes, make love to your spouse, find an app that has soothing backgrounds noises (ie rainfall), listen to soft music, get a massage, cuddle up with a blanket and a warm beverage.
Whatever you choose, fully experience it. If you choose to take a bath, notice how the water feels on your skin, listen to the sound of the water splashing against your body, smell the beautiful scent of the burning candle. In other words, be fully present. Feel the good feelings, allow yourself to enjoy time with yourself. Make a mental effort to give yourself permission to enjoy your atmosphere of peace. It is no longer a luxury, rather a daily necessity. Make it happen, friends!
