We all have them small satisfactions in life, don't we? For some people it's the click of a lipstick lid, popping bubble wrap or the smell of cut grass. Well today I thought I'd list 10 of my favourite small moments in life. Things that really make me happy!
1. Opening the seal of a new jar of coffee.
There is just something really satisfying about punching the spoon into the foil lid and starting a brand new jar of Kenco coffee.
2. The sound of two snooker balls hitting each other.
I love to watch snooker anyway but sometimes I could literally fall asleep listening to the balls hit each other on the table.
3. The smell of books.
I know some people like the smell of new books but I love the smell of any book. Bookshops, libraries, my own bookshelves. I really enjoy it.
I buy stationary just for the fun of it. Especially notepads... stacks upon stacks of them. Paperchase is like a dream to me.
5. Perfectly flat things.
When you open a new candle and the wax is smooth and perfect <3 Or jelly that's just set, a new pot of Vaseline and snow.
I find lights that slowly drift in and out of different colours so relaxing. At the steam rooms I go to they have little LED lights in the ceiling and a mood lamp and I find them so relaxing.
7. Zen music.
Whilst writing this post I'm currently listening to this three hour long piece of zen music. If I'm feeling tired or lethargic I can listen to it for ages. I love it mostly when I'm in a beauty salon and they have this music playing. I could fall asleep.
8. Rain hitting the windows.
When I'm not outside or at work and everyone's at home I just love listening to the rain. I also have a sleeping app on my phone which has noises such as rain and waterfalls and it sends me straight to sleep.
Anything that sparkles immediately catches my eye. I'm a magpie.
Does anyone else love the smell of a sauna? I don't even know what the smell is. It seems like a mixture of wood, heat and fire. I wonder if you can get a sauna scented candle?
What are your weird satisfactions?
I'd love to hear them in the comments!
See you next time,
