ometimes, your day gets off on the wrong foot or something happens that sours your mood, or you simply want to make each moment the best it can be! In any case, there are teeny tiny things you can do to make your day better or just more delightful.
I don't purport to have all the answers. But I know that these things have helped me salvage a day that chose the dark path instead of the bright, light one, like Belle's dad in Beauty and the Beast.
Not every one of these 20 things is probably doable right this second, but many of them are, and I swear they help. These aren't magic — but they are concrete, and while they might not all be your style, hopefully there's something on this list that resonates with you!
Write down what you want to do today.
Even if you literally have nothing to do today, I swear the act of writing a to-do list and crossing something out is its own high.
Lie on the floor.
Sometimes and minute change of perspective is all we need to come up with a new idea or change our attitude about something. Also recommend lying upside-down on the couch.
Stretching your body feels so good, and you can literally do it anywhere at any time. Throw a neck roll in there and you’ll be in heaven.
Buy a candle and light it.
Scented candles are great, but even if you dig a little tea light out of your junk drawer, a lit candle does wonders for your mood. It’s hygge embodied.
Go for a stroll.
Even if it’s literally for two minutes, a walk is great. You don’t even have to go outside, though fresh air is an added bonus.
