3 Ways To Celebrate the Good in Life
It is nearly impossible to go through the day without hearing one more news bite that adds another worry onto our already full plates. We watch as our family, friends, and community members navigate the new and ongoing uncertainties surrounding work, school, and life due to the global pandemic. In times like these, it is even more vital that we find ways to see the good happening around us. One of our favorite sayings is, “What you focus on expands.” We are trying our best to find ways to focus on all that brings a little smile to our faces at the end of a long day. Here are a few ways you can stay connected to joy and celebrate the good in life.
Start a Gratitude Journal
Many studies show the benefits of journaling on our mental health, but many avoid it because it seems hard or time-consuming. It doesn’t have to be! One easy way to stay connected to joy is with a Gratitude Journal. First thing in the morning or right before bed, simply write five things for which you are grateful. Keep this practice up every day and feel your heart fill with joy for all the little things in life.
Have a Candlelight Dinner for No Reason
Fancy dinners at restaurants are not an option, but why not bring the romance home? No need to wait for an anniversary or a birthday to create a special moment. Cook your favorite food or place an order for pick-up from your favorite local restaurant (check www.visittrivalley.com for a list of local restaurants and businesses with delivery and pick-up options). All you need are a few candles or a string of Christmas lights to add some ambiance. Pull out the cloth napkin and the fancy glasses. Use this time to talk about the best parts of your day. Pop open some sparkling and toast to the good in life. We're celebrating Wednesday with a bottle of Ruby Hill Sparkling.)
Send Handwritten Letters
Make a list of all the family and friends you miss, those near and far. Instead of sending a text or Facebook message, take a few minutes to write a quick note. Be it long or short, everyone loves a surprise letter in the mailbox. And since that’s as far as most of us can travel these days, you are bound to put a smile on their face.
How else are you staying connected to joy and celebrating the good stuff in life?
