Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to accomplish something big that we fail to notice the little things that give life its magic.
Life is all about living your life in detail. Living every small moment to its fullest adds more meaning to your life. Simple pleasures throughout the day can be far more gratifying that one amazing weekend. When you connect the dots between all these little joys, life seems fuller and more satisfying. You never know what a small thing can do unless you try it or live it.
Here’s a list of some little things going unnoticed in your daily life which can make a big difference:
- Wake up with a smile
You may never have noticed what a morning smile can do to you. Wake up with a smile on your face and you’ll feel refreshing all day long. It’s because a smile creates the positive energy in you and makes you work a little more.
- Your playlist
Well this might be the very first thing you would do when you feel low. But have you tried it when you are happy, or simply while you are at work? Music can sometimes be distracting when you are working, but it always adds a little speed to your work when you are listening to the music of your kind. Just try and feel the difference.
- A small gesture of kindness
Smile at the people you know when you see them somewhere. This gives them a nice feeling and they don’t feel being avoided when you are not feeling to talk to them. Offer drinks or food to someone. Perform little courtesies like holding door or pulling chair for someone. These little gestures could pull people to your side since less is always more.
- Playing with children around you
Playing is highest form of research. – Albert Einstein
Playing is always fun. Remember the games you used to play as a child. Taking out some time when you see children around you playing your favorite game and playing on with them can make you happier and refreshes your childhood memories.
- Laughing till your stomach pains
Recall when was the last time you laughed out loud? Never hesitate to laugh with your heart. As laughter is the best medicine and it can heal all your worries at the moment. Give your life some time to laugh and enjoy the happiness around.
- A thoughtful conversation with your kids
Talking to your kids will let you know what they are up to and what’s going in their life. You may discuss the memories from your childhood with them and the same goes with them sharing their school events. You’ll be pleased to know your kids learning from watching you.
- A new recipe that comes out perfectly
It is said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. What could be better than to surprise your loved ones with their favorite dish? A new recipe will definitely put a smile on their face and will make your way to their heart.
- A small change to your routine
Trying on something new isn’t a bad thing at all. It will add some experience to your work, be it good or bad. Good experience will make you happy and bad experience will make you try another thing to have a good experience.
There are many other little things having much importance than many big things. Just appreciate the small things in life; in a fleeting second time will pass you by. Those little things add up to the most cherished moments, because sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. Feel the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring because life is a great bundle of little things.
