Health and Happiness

Sometimes, we look to the future a little too much for our happiness- we're all guilty of it. It may be as simple as thinking that we'll be happy once we've met a certain person or once we've done a certain thing. The truth is: we're surrounded by experiences that make us happy and by taking our attention away from the now, we're missing out! 

That's why I've decided to make a list of a few awesome things I've done, no matter how small.  Although the future is full of endless possibilities and new experiences, you have already made some incredible memories from opportunities you were lucky enough to grasp in what was then the present.

Sleeping in a tent for a week

Rock climbing
Losing laser tag
Writing to the Queen
Sailing
Playing rock-it ball
Sleeping in a pigsty
Crawling through a hay bale maze in pyjamas
Visiting more castles than I can name
Riding Europe’s longest roller coaster
Making a jam sandwich blindfolded
Buying food from a service station at 2am
Watching the sun set and rise
Being veggie for two years
Spending the night at an aquarium 

I'd love to hear what you all have on your lists!

Health and happiness,
Marti xxx

  1. Your definitely right! We should focus on the now, sometimes I even find myself getting caught up in trying to reach an end goal that I don't enjoy the journey. Also you have done a lot of thing. Hands down I have to try spending the night in an aquarium. That seems like so much fun !!!
