Feel Happier In Only Five Minutes A Day!!!
Every month in the Chasing Joy’s Joy Chasers Facebook Group we do a challenge. The goal of the challenges are to challenge us to do things that will help us to have more happiness in our day-to-day lives. Happiness is not always something that comes natural. Sometimes you have to work for it, hence the challenges. So far this year we’ve done challenges related to goal-setting, gratitude, and self care.
This month’s challenge seems to be a little harder than past months. So I decided to write a little blog post to help everyone out. Our April challenge is called 5 minutes for me. The goal is to learn how to feel happier in only five minutes a day. To participate in the challenge simply take 5 minutes each day and spend it doing something for yourself. The five minutes should be spent doing things that make you happy, help you feel less stressed, help you feel at peace, or make your life easier. It should be things that you enjoy. Most of us spend so much time doing things like working and taking care of our families that even taking 5 minutes is a challenge.
To help everyone out I’ve made a quick list of 12 things that you can do for 5 minutes to help you feel more joyful. I hope this list gives you some ideas of quick things to do to finish out our challenge strong.
2. Read a book
6. Play with your pet
7. Sit in the sun
8. Go for a walk
9. Have a dance party
11. Slowly savor and indulge in a cup of coffee or tea, glass of wine, or cocktail
12. Call a friend and actually talk
What do you do to help yourself have a little joy that only takes a few minutes each day? Do you do any of the things already on my list? Or can you give us some cool ideas to add to the list? Let me know in the comments below.
