Yesterday I wrote about accomplishments. My conclusion was that they do not have to be big, visible things. It’s the small things that count. My sweet friend, Gretchen, recently gave me the book, The Happiness Project. I have just only begun to read it, but visited The Happiness Project website. The author, Gretchen Rubin, talked about Ten Things I Can Do Every Day. I thought that was very fitting based on my recent blog. I began to think about a typical day. Some days it seems as if I get lots accomplished and other days… not so much. I decided to create my list of Ten Things I Can Do Every Day. I thought long and hard about this, and stole a few small ideas from her list*. So, here goes…
Ten Things I Can Do Every Day: (regardless of how hectic and crazy life is)
2. Enjoy a cup of coffee first thing in the morning.
3. Kiss my husband!
4. “Move” for a minimum of 10-15 minutes.
5. *Pick up one object that’s in the wrong place and put it away.
6. Choose something healthy to eat over junk food.
7. Floss my teeth before bed.
8. Take 20-30 minutes to do something for ME!
9. Scoop the cat box!
10. Commit a Random Act of Kindness.
I am excited to begin reading The Happiness Project and will be sharing more of that journey. For now, what is on your list of things that you can do every day? Do you see those small things as accomplishments?
