Sometimes I can get stuck in a funk when I'm in a bad mood for absolutely no reason, and I try to remember that sometimes it's the little things in life that can make you happiest, whether that's a cup of tea on a rainy day, an oreo ice cream in the sunshine (omg it was delicious) or even bubbles!
I was kindly sent a 'happiness pack' by Viking recently which promised to make a 'glass half empty' person into a glass half full! There was a little bubble making pot alongside some other goodies including yummy teas and biscuits and a lotto ticket, which unfortunately didn't win anything for me. When I opened it I started blowing bubbles in the office and we all thought it was amazing, something as simple as a few bubbles seems to make people so happy! I'm so sorry there aren't any photos of the other little goodies, but I ate/drank them all before I got a chance!
Then a week after I was out in Stratford with all my family and my dad bought my sister and my little cousins a giant version of my bubble pot. All the adults tried to pretend we were too grown up and sat watching...but that only lasted about 5 minutes, we all had to have a go. It was even making all the people watching smile (until the bubbles started getting a little too close for comfort and nearly bursting over their heads..).
I think it's important to remember that just taking some time out to yourself to relax is really important and can have a huge impact on your happiness. And if in doubt just buy yourself a bubble machine and you'l be giggling away in no time.
What little things do you do to get yourself out of a funk and back into a good mood?
