Simple things that help you feel good.


What simple things help you to feel good?

Today I tried on four dresses and they are all lovely. I look good in those clothes, and that helped me to be in a good mood.

I got the clothes for my Winter wardrobe, so they are warm knitted dresses that I can easily combine with something thinner and lighter underneath -- except the very tightly-fitting, sleeveless, strappy black gown with the semi-sheer fabric at the waist that is not very suitable for Winter at all, but which I got anyway as it looks so sexy. That black gown is very comfortable though, even though it is so fitted; and technically-speaking, it *is* a knitted dress since it is made from knitted polyester in all the areas in which it is actually there.

After I tried on the dresses -- feeling satisfied that the styles suit me very well -- I had a big slice of my favourite Madeira cake which has pink icing decorated with butterflies, as well as a cup of tea. Two cups of tea, actually!

I had a very productive afternoon, doing what I wanted to do quickly and easily. As I said: I was in a good mood, so that helped to enjoy doing a "chore" -- meaning that it was not like doing work. Instead of doing the "work" first and enjoying the dresses, tea, and cake like a reward, I chose to "reward" myself without having done anything to "deserve it"; and the sense of not having suffered at all, despite having done "work", is another simple thing that I enjoy!

Well I guess looking at my books helps sometimes - especially the nice old leather ones. I quite like looking through some of the boxes sometimes too and finding ones I'd forgotten about.

Talking to my wife on the phone usually helps - although I'm trying to cut down on that a bit. At least on this higher dose I don't feel the need to call her as soon as I wake up.

Watching this guy I like on Youtube that does tours of lovely hotels - even his voice sort of relaxes me plus the hotels are beautiful.

*Having a shower and brushing my teeth. After I awaken from my slumber, those things really help to inject life back into me.

*Hearing birds chirping away, and seeing neighborhood cats always gives me a smile too.

Not the most healthy way to deal things but drinking alcohol makes me feel good while im doing it. Not so much when its over but its what I do.

Working out makes me feel good when its over as well. Traveling to a new and interesting place I enjoy as well

A bunch of things. Last four would be marijuana, music, garlic bread and non-alcoholic beer.

Flowers will grow from these wounds.

Walking on a sunny day with my headphones on.
