Feel-good Tip One

11 Jun

Feel-good photoMy feel-good tips are designed to help you get a quick hit of positivity (because life is too short to feel bad).

Here’s number one (and it was inspired by redecorating my downstairs loo!)

Have you got something in your home that reminds you of a particularly good time?

Maybe it’s a souvenir from a wonderful holiday, a gift from a loved one, a photo of a happy day or a ticket from an amazing gig, festival or play?

You’ll know what it is for you, as it will make you smile whenever you look at it.  And that’s what I want you to do.

Often we can keep precious objects or mementos tucked away somewhere, in a cupboard, a drawer or high up on a shelf.   Nowadays photos are often kept on our smartphones or laptops.  We have to search them out if we want to see them.

Well, I want you to put that object, photo or memento somewhere you will see it often.

Put your feel-good talisman in pride of place.

I noticed the power of this when my husband and I were decorating our downstairs toilet (apologies if this is too much information!)  We decided to put one of our wedding invitations in a frame and display it on the wall in the loo.

I had kept the invitation as a memento of the day, but it had been put with all of my other sentimental objects in a basket.  I never got to see it unless I purposely went searching for it.

Now I get to see it every day and it makes me feel happy whenever I notice it.  I get an instant boost of feelgood-ness!

So what will make you feel good every time you look at it?

Search something out now and do the smile test.  If a smile immediately comes to your lips, then it’s a winner!

Put it in pride of place and enjoy your feel-good boost every time you see it from now on.

Comment below to let me know what your feel-good object is and where you are going to display it.  Let’s share the feelings of goodness!
