The One Word That Can Instantly Change Your Mood

Life is not about the destination, it’s about the journey. This is one thought that haunts our generation and for good reason. We are so absorbed in our daily occupations that very often forget to breathe and take a look around us, to notice all the things that could make us happy.

I have come to this eye opening conclusion as I went to a hipster cool place for a coffee and a few hours’ of writing. The thing was at some point, I was surprised to discover the fact that my fancy coffee was almost gone, and I have forgotten to enjoy it, because I was too busy and focused on writing.

So, it struck me, I’ve been so busy focusing on the things I had to do, that I have completely ignored the things that make me happy and are fun.

Not experiencing happy and fun things transforms life in a boring experience.

So, I decided to switch it up. My secret word is Pleasure and I’ve decided to give it as much importance as possible.

  1. Have a trigger. Have a ritual and include pleasure in it. It is very important to build the ritual on things that you enjoy and that make you happy.
  2. Set reminders. It may sound weird, but setting a reminder every now and then, when you least expect it, with the word PLEASURE is going to surprise you and break down the monotony.
  3. Tune into your senses. Enjoy the things around you. Take time to feel your sheets and cotton pajamas instead of just falling into the bed in a daze. Savor the softness of your clothes and fabric instead of just putting them on and taking them off.

Just seeing the word Pleasure is going to remind you to relax and enjoy your day.
