April is Stress Awareness month. We all have different sources of stress and we all manage our stress in different ways. What may be stressful to one person may not be stressful to another.

As I was reading this morning, I came across an article with 101 simple pleasures to boost happiness. Reading those pleasures brought a smile to my face. How many of these simple pleasures boost your happiness? I copied some of my favorites here:

Simple Pleasures to Boost Happiness

  • Seeing a baby light up with a big grin
  • Watching your favorite childhood tv show
  • Fresh bedding
  • Getting a great parking space
  • Making someone smile
  • A great book
  • A long walk on a cool day
  • Unexpected good news
  • The smell of a barbeque
  • Seeing a rainbox
  • Spring flowers blooming
  • Coming across an old photo that makes you smile
  • A long conversation with a favorite friend
After you read the list, are there others you would add? Do you stop to enjoy the moment when one of your simple pleasures happens?
