Make Time For Happiness

Daily writing prompt
What are 5 everyday things that bring you happiness?

After a few moments reflecting on my likes and dislikes I came up with some random things that really make me happy. Of course, my family and friends do, but here I am focusing on activities that I like. Read on…


I find the simple act of walking through nature to be incredibly therapeutic, as it allows me to detach from the stress of daily life. I love to immerse myself in the beauty of nature. The physical exercise and fresh air are awesome!


Traveling is undoubtedly one of the most fulfilling experiences in my life. It exposes me to different cultures, and creates lifelong memories. I love the sense of adventure, excitement, and a break from the monotony of everyday life. Whether it’s exploring a new city, relaxing on a tropical beach, or hiking in the mountains, the thrill of discovering something new and unfamiliar is a feeling that never grows old. Studies show that travel can also have significant mental health benefits, reducing stress, depression, and anxiety.


Reading offers me an escape from the real world, and provides me with the opportunity to explore new worlds and perspectives. I like the feel of a new book in my hands, but I have really come to love my Kindle. So many books at my disposal on one little device. I find myself drawn to various genres, from biographies to fiction to self-help. Reading allows me to unwind and reflect on my innermost thoughts.


Kayaking along a body of water, such as a river or lake can offer a connection to the natural environment, as well as a full-body workout. Whether it’s the tranquility of gliding over calm waters or the thrill of tackling rapids, kayaking is a source of happiness and adventure for me.


I’ve written about this before, but decluttering my space is something that brings me a sense of happiness and calm. By removing the excess, I’m making room to focus on what truly matters to me, both mentally and physically. A clutter-free space translates into a clutter-free mind and adds to my overall happiness.

By embracing these random things and finding happiness in the little moments, I’m able to cultivate a positive mindset and have a greater appreciation for the world around me.

  1. What a great list. Traveling (cruising) and reading top mine, I used to love walking in the woods when I lived in the middle of the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. I’m slowly working on the decluttering, but some things still bring me joy so they stay.

  2. Thank you for your post. I enjoy decluttering for sure. But I really like applying Acts 20:35 where it encourages giving brings much more happiness than relieving.
