Everyone wants to be happy, but for the most part, happiness is elusive. One explanation is that individuals anticipate their pleasure to come from worldly things, such as a job promotion. However, it is vital to discover joy in the smallest things to live a happy and serene life. As life is made up of small things, appreciating them for what they are will make for a more enjoyable life. It’s easy to focus on the unpleasant aspects of life, especially if one is dealing with depression or addiction. However, finding happiness amid adversity can be difficult. Instead, make an effort to focus on the positive.

What would you gain if you could have your big dream? For example, what would a large sum of money accomplish for you if it were your dream? Surely it might provide comfort there. It would serve the food you want and have aesthetic furniture. But what about right now, though? Do you have access to food that you enjoy? Do you have a comfy bed with lovely pillows and a warm blanket? Then you already have a portion of what you desire.

Find a specific area to spend time alone if one is having problems finding contentment. It is advisable to find an area that is both quiet and comfortable. Make it a safe zone. Spend some time meditating in this safe refuge when it is all feeling overwhelmed. Close your eyes, relax your body, and concentrate on the positive aspects of your life. Finding happiness in tiny things begins with making a list of things you are grateful and glad for.

Take a step back and look at the simple things around for another way to find enjoyment in small things. Focus on the tiny milestones along the journey rather than getting caught up in the big picture. Be grateful for whatever happened, whether a modest step forward in your rehabilitation or a moment of joy throughout your workday. Regardless of how big or tiny the event or accomplishment is, it is worth noting.

The energy you give off is influenced by mindset, mental and emotional wellness. This can impact the tone of the event. For example, if you appear distressed, others in the room may sense your anxiety. If you live a life focused on achieving goals and moving forward, you will likely achieve a great deal. You will be losing out on much that makes life worth living if you do not take time to enjoy a meal with your close ones or breathe in the fresh morning air. What is it about the tiny things that make them so unique? Our attitudes toward small things influence happiness in various ways. Life is made up of millions of small moments rather than a single great one. 

Take charge of your day by breaking it down into small events and focusing on what went well. Your mind, body, friends, and family will all thank you for spreading happiness to them by finding your joy.  Shopping with a friend, coloring with your child, or watching a movie with your significant other on a wet day could all provide you joy. 

Laughter and happiness are contagious!
