Hello! I often get asked what I do to cheer myself up when I'm having a bad day. The most wonderful thing about happiness is that YOU can create your own. It's a choice, everyday.
So here it is, my list of things I do to 'get happy' (all photos are my own, taken from my Instagram @oceanpainter_ ) ;
1// An instant pick me up involves sunshine, duvet, fairy lights and my laptop. Tumblr, Pinterest, Youtube, Netflix... something that I can relax in to and smile. My favourite TV programmes are Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon A Time, Glee and Sherlock.
And even if you don't have a field or woodland to escape in to, just walk. Discover a new neighbourhood- sit on the grass and watch as the cars go by. Be at peace with yourself in that moment.
5 // I dream. Dreaming of adventure and all the amazing unknown things to come is so comforting. Life is going to throw so much excitement your way so embrace the changes and relish in the new waves of inspiration that come with it.
Because ultimately that's what it all comes down to. YOU. Don't rely on someone else to make you happy. Create your own ocean, paint your own canvas (and every other cheesy metaphor in the book) because f*@k it, this is your life.
