My Happy Life Checklist #heartsoulmindbodyspirit

I was doing my library thing (see explanation in other post), and I found this sweet little book called The Happy Life Checklist by Amy Spencer.

She talks about realizing that a key to happiness is balance.  “You know why a piano chord sounds so beautiful?” she writes.  “Because it’s not just one beautiful note; it’s some high notes mixed with some low.”  As a cultivator of balance, I like this a lot.

I decided to start making my own happy life checklist.18527986_1507849989247901_1518618777655949059_n

-Make juice.

-Have a campfire.

-Plant herbs by the house.

-Sleep outside.

-Browse some cookbooks.

-Celebrate holidays.

-Use the happy jar every night at dinner.

-Say grace.

-Visit Hybridoma!

-Savor every bite of food.

-Mindful eating, mindful walking, mindful living.

-Give each day a theme word.

-Use your first five minutes wisely.

This is all I’ve got for now.  But I hope I spend the rest of my year (and life) updating this post.  ❤
