Lately, it feels like life is as hectic as ever. Balancing work, a husband, and a social life can be a struggle. I barely have time to go to the gym let alone cook a healthy dinner for myself. But I still try and take a couple of minutes out of my busy day to appreciate the priceless and satisfying moments. Getting into a freshly made bed, watching my favorite show, and taking my dog for a walk are a couple of my favorites. Here are 5 small wins in my day-to-day life that I cherish most--
Getting into my PJs after a long day.
Who doesn't love slipping into pajamas after a long day? My favorite pair has pineapples and flamingos on them---my best friend bought them for me. I love the feeling of soft flannel and finally being able to climb into bed.
Getting your 10th coffee for free (at your favourite coffee shop).
Most mornings I stop at my go-to coffee place right near my apartment. They have the best flat white lattes and a great rewards system. Since I go there so often, I get a free coffee twice a month--I'm probably their favourite customer.
Escaping the city for the long weekend.
Don't get me wrong-- I love being in the city and the fast paced lifestyle. But sometimes I just need fresh air, green trees, and an open road. My family and I love going to visit my mom in the country for a few days. My dog loves running around the yard, and I can't get enough of the "freshly cut grass" smell.
Getting a table at the local pub.
After a long work week, one of my guilty pleasures is a schooner of beer at my favourite pub near my office. It's a great way for my husband and I to spend time together and start our weekend off right. But of course at 6:30PM on a Friday, it's always super packed. Last week, my husband actually found a table---I swear it was a miracle.
That feeling of accomplishment of preparing a meal.
Cooking is not one of my strong suits, so when I see the HelloFresh box on my doorstep, I am instantly relieved. Each week, HelloFresh sends a box filled with fresh ingredients and easy-to-prepare meals. I don't have to come up with a healthy recipe for dinner every night of the week and I actually get to improve my cooking skills. There's nothing like that feeling of pride after successfully preparing a delicious meal all in 30 minutes or less!
With life moving so fast, it is important for us to take a moment out of our busy days and appreciate the small things life has to offer. With HelloFresh, we're spending time together and eating quality food--definitely one of my favourite simple pleasures in life.
