Every Monday at work, throughout the day I make a mental list of simple pleasures- a new herb plant I’d like to pick up for my kitchen, a nail polish color I want to try, a recipe that looks good, an outfit I’d like to recreate, etc. Nothing too large scale (we’re not talking vacations or $300 shoes), just inexpensive treats and small self-care rituals I’d like to make time for.
After I’ve made this list of little things that make me happy, I sprinkle them throughout my schedule. That way tomorrow, my Tuesday feels a little less drone. I’m not just getting up, working 10-6, coming home, exercising, and heading to bed (yawn).
