Life’s Little Pleasures
It is easy to take life’s little pleasures for granted because we are all caught up in the roller coaster of getting by. When was the last time you just sat still and watched a sunrise or savored every drop of a cup of coffee? The demands of work, family, and household chores makes it nearly impossible to stop and “smell the roses”.
Have you ever stopped to dwell in the magic of life’s little pleasures? If no, today’s the day that will all change. Grab a piece of paper and write down at least five of your favorite little pleasures in life. Be sure to promise yourself that you will enjoy at least one of these pleasures every day for the rest of your life. Most importantly, put your phone down and be fully present with your experience.
Here are some of my favorite little pleasures and I bet some of these are your favorites too. Enjoy!

- Coffee (and Tea)
There is nothing like the smell of a fresh cup of coffee in the morning or a nice cup of tea in the afternoon. Next time you have a cup of something warm and delicious, savor every sip.
- Sweet Treats
Don’t you just love a high-quality piece of chocolate or a delicious piece of cake made from scratch? When you indulge in something sweet, make sure you love it and enjoy every bite.
Most people take showers and baths for granted but there is nothing like a shower to wake you up and a nice long bath after a stressful day.
