Do one thing every day that makes you happy. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? It can be hard to find something positive in each day. I know that only too well. But what if I told you that find the positive and doing something every day that truly makes you happy really isn’t hard or time-consuming? Would you believe me?
Over the years, in sharing my journey, I have crossed paths with many who feel they simply cannot take time for themselves. I can relate to that. For many years I put others first and didn’t take time for me. It took me a long time to realize just how bad that was for my physical and mental health.
Journaling is one of the easiest things you can do to take a little time for yourself. I’ve been journaling since I was 9 years old. I find it has been the best form of therapy for me. But, I love it when I stumble on little gems like ‘Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy’ by Rogge & Smith.
