5 Things That Make Me Happy

Ok, so it's actually a really strange coincidence that I am writing this post. Why you ask? Well, I was feeling down in the dumps and uninspired but knew I needed to work on a post so I turned to a list of post ideas, picked a random number, and decided to write about that. Now, when I'm feeling sad I like to listen to "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music to cheer myself up which is exactly what I was doing when I randomly chose the topic of 5 Things That Make Me Happy! Perfect, no?
Click to read now or pin to save for later! When life gets you down, here are ways to bring back the positivity and make yourself happy
So here it is!

  1. Watching Bollywood videos. Not only do I watch Bollywood videos when I am rewarding myself for productivity (see the fourth tip here) and when I'm feeling sad, but I also do so when I'm happy. Basically it's all Bollywood all of the time and I couldn't be more pleased.
  2. Eating a Cinnabon. No real explanation is required for that. Everyone knows the bliss that comes from a warm, gooey pastry.
  3. Seeing a live performance. This is not something I get to experience as often as I'd like. Going to the theater is a particular favorite of mine; there's nothing like sitting in anticipation of the curtain rising and watching a story unfold in front of you. 
  4. Dancing and singing. I am a bad dancer. I am also a poor singer. Do I care? Not a bit! Turning up the music in my room and dancing about does wonders for my mood and I can't wipe the smile off of my face. 
  5. Talking to my friends and family. My mother and I speak on the phone multiple times a day and I am always grabbing a meal with friends or going to the library together. Having positive interactions with lots of laughs is a surefire way to feel happy!
What makes you happy?



  1. Agree with number 4 and 5. Cuddles with my cats also always lift me up!


  2. Anything Cinnabon! I also love talking with my friends and family, I find that always makes me happy. And seeing my gorgeous pup when I come home from work! xx
