If you’re feeling like something’s missing in your life, chances are it’s probably happiness.
Despite all of our advancements as a society, many of us struggle to find true contentment and satisfaction.
If that sounds familiar to you, don’t worry, there are plenty of small things that can make a big difference in the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us!
Today, we’ll discuss 12 easy tips for adding more joy into your everyday life, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to unlock new levels of comfort and personal fulfillment!
#1. Being Able-Bodied
Many people don’t realize how fortunate they are to be able-bodied.
Those with disabilities must find ways to adjust to life and do things others can do relatively easily.
If you’re able-bodied, you’re already quite fortunate!
#2. Parents in General
Having people you can talk to who completely understand you and will always be there for you is a blessing.
But as we get older, we tend to lose those people.
Don’t take parents for granted, as they unfortunately won’t always be there.
#3. Being Able to Breathe Through Your Nose
A little lighter topic we often take for granted is being able to breathe out of your nose.
Being sick is the worst, and most illnesses are accompanied by congestion that will not go away no matter how much we blow.
Once we’re able to breathe again, we’re appreciative. Then we go back to forgetting how much of a blessing it is to be able to breathe correctly.
Not everyone lives in a safe environment, regardless of whether we’re talking about the home or the country.
This lack of safety can constantly weigh on people, causing chronic stress and anxiety that never entirely goes away.
If you feel safe both where you live and in the country you’re a citizen of, you can be grateful for it.
#5. Clean Air
Some countries have horrendous air quality due to certain industrial processes, and others struggle occasionally due to disasters like wildfires.
Regardless, having to be cooped up inside or even wearing masks to get around can change your perspective on how often we take clean air for granted.
#6. Fresh Produce
Fresh produce is something you can’t live without when you need a refreshing snack or if you’re someone who likes to cook.
But like general access to food, not everyone may have access to fresh produce and depend instead on other food sources.
Having all the different types of food we want in our vicinity or at our fingertips can be a privilege, too.
The modern world relies heavily on power.
If we didn’t have electricity, there’s no telling what we would do to survive.
#8. Good Parental Examples
There are a lot of people out there who look back fondly on their childhood and talk about how their parents taught them certain things about life.
However, some didn’t have the good parental examples they needed to navigate life moving forward effectively.
This has set them back and made them wish they did have the good role models that most others do.
#9. Good Health and Well-Being
Your health is something that you take for granted until something happens to it.
Sometimes, this is something minor that we overcome and then return to living our lives.
Other times, we may have to deal with long-term issues that continue to affect us negatively.
Always be grateful for your health when it’s good!
Shoes are the only thing keeping us protected from the sharp objects littering the ground and the heat or the cold.
Almost everyone has shoes, but there are individuals far less fortunate who might have to go without them for a period of time.
Next time you put on your shoes to do something, think about how much they protect you on a daily basis.
#11. Clean Water
Clean water isn’t a given, especially in underdeveloped countries.
Remembering that you have access to clean drinking water, clean bathing water, clean water to wash your clothes in, and more can be an eye-opening experience.
#12. Access to Food
Access to food isn’t guaranteed, even if you have enough money to feed yourself.
Plenty of food deserts exist throughout the U.S., meaning some have to rely on the minimal fast food options around them.
Access to food is always something we can be grateful for.
