1.) Being outside. There is something so naturally enticing about feeling the grass beneath my feet, the sun kissing my skin and feeling the wind in my hair. It always seems to instantly improve my mood.
2.)Laughing. Laughing at the most meaningless, stupid little corny or even inappropriate things. Laughing until my chest hurts and my stomach aches. Especially laughing with someone I love, and realizing in that moment that my life would not be the same with out them.
3.) Getting out of the house. Going anywhere. Pointless drives to nowhere, buying a $1.25 coffee with the extra change in my purse and people watching, walking in the park or even just window shopping. Getting out and doing anything fixes racing thoughts and anxious hearts.
3.)Hot baths. Sinking into a steaming hot bath with dim lights and allowing my mind to think about nothing other than the silence and calming heat on my body. Allowing myself to slowly slip into complete intoxicating sedation.
4.)Exercise. Running and running until I can’t feel my legs. Sweating and getting my heart pumping and my muscles aching in any way possible. Exercise releases endorphin’s and serotonin which decreases anxiety and depression. Being fit and comfortable in your skin is a plus too.
5.)Love. Forehead kisses and being wrapped up in the arms of the one I so deeply love makes me feel alive, safe and untouchable. Seeing him causes the world to stop, my heart to race and my breath to quicken. Nothing else on the planet matters when we are together. If you haven’t found your soulmate, be patient, you will.
6.) Adventures. Traveling. Exploring. Watching sunsets in brand new places, and walking on newly touched land is the most invigorating thing that can happen. City skylines, mountains, endless fields of nothing, rivers and oceans that never end. Random conversations with random people. Go everywhere, take risks, do crazy shit, see everything , never pass up an opportunity to experience life and the beautiful world that we take for granted.
