Growing up my mom would often point out little things and say “happiness is!”. We’d make a game of it sometimes while out on a walk or to pass the time while waiting in line.

This activity taught me to always be on the lookout for the good stuff that’s all around….you can always find something. It helps when I’m feeling anxious because it gives my mind something constructive (and positive) to do.

Here are 10 things to be happy about in January!

  1. Fresh, new beginnings.

  2. Building a snowman (even as a grown-up).

  3. Enjoying a book so much you can’t wait for bedtime so you can read another chapter.

  4. Kneading bread dough.

  5. The cozy smell of woodsmoke from neighbors’ chimneys while out for an evening walk.

  6. The satisfaction of snapping in the final piece of a jigsaw puzzle.

  7. Watching the dog bound around in the snowdrifts, so playful and full of joy.

  8. Warming your hands around a steaming hot mug of chai tea.

  9. A warm blanket straight from the dryer.

  10. Pancakes for dinner!
