Listening to music and talking to my close ones is also a happy habit I have 🙂July 9, 2013 at 5:13 am #38248kavsgParticipant
Wow Midge, it is so inspiring the way you take time to answer everyones comments here! Acknowledgement is definitely a happy habit!
– I love to read to my children while Jazz is playing in the background
– I am a cleanliness addict and always feel uplifted when my space is sparkling
– Cuddling with my husband talking about the day thats passed till I fall asleep 🙂
-Watching my babies sleeping and listening to them breathing soundly, I just stand there and thank the universe for my beauties
-Writing is a great love of mine as well!July 12, 2013 at 10:50 am #38489AnonymousInactive
I am sensing that nature and music seem to be universal accomplices in helping to create happy habits. And I am sure these have been ongoing parts of our human habits for a long, long time now.
I appreciate your mentioning of being thankful for the “small small happiness” in life. That, I believe, makes up our everyday sort of happiness. The occasional celebrations (holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) bring opportunities for happiness too, but it’s the little things we think, say, and do in life that make up our happiness.
Thanks for joining in on this happy little conversation.July 12, 2013 at 10:56 am #38490AnonymousInactive
I am a “neat freak” too! I truly believe a clean, clutter-free environment positively affects our minds.
And, oh!, I remember just watching my little ones sleep—I still do despite the fact that they’re now full grown. Seeing those we love in peaceful moments is beautiful to behold.
And what I’ve learned about writing is that the process is what I enjoy. I used to think that other people needed to find value or interest in it for it to be worthy. Now I know that I’m the one who cherishes it while I’m writing.
Thanks for these wonderful words, and I agree with you about acknowledgement. I suspect a lot of people would be a little happier if they felt acknowledged and listened to and heard.

I call my mum regularly. Not only do I get to talk to her, but also my 3 year old nephew who is usually with her in the morning.
i take a shower and spend just a little bit longer shampooing my hair, and combing it out while I condition. I might even shave my legs.
I listen to a guided meditation. I’m a guided meditation junkie!July 13, 2013 at 11:31 pm #38558SushmaParticipant
My Happy habits include:

2) Spending time in nature
3) Meeting old friends
5) Last but not the least, readings lotz of self development books.
