Thank you so much for joining us for the Choose Happiness Series!! If you just happen to be popping in, well lucky you! Today I am sharing tip number one! SMELL GOOD!
Now I am not saying take a shower every day, for some that may be possible. If it does, LUCKY you! However, for me at least that does not happen every day. That would be so lovely but not likely….. my husband somehow does seem to find the time to shower every day, I need to figure out his tricks and use them…haha!
Smelling good! Seems pretty basic right? But have you noticed how much scents can change your attitude or what you are thinking about. Smell your moms cookies and you think of how delicious they are, smelling mint ca wake you up. So if you smell good and catch a whif of your favorite lotion then it can brighten your day! Keep some of your favorite lotion around and use it! YES use it! One of my favorite lotions is white diamonds, I had a friend give me this little travel size bottle for a gift and I was so excited and so happy! I saved it, I did not want to waste it on just a normal day. I put it aside and I would look at it and even open it up sometimes and smell it but I never used it. Guess what happened? It eventually got ruined from drying out and getting old. It was no good, and I ended up getting to enjoy it only a few times. What a waste! SO USE YOUR LOTION!
Everyone can use lotion to smell good, and you can run to the dollar store and get some inexpensive lotion or go all out and get some really good stuff. Every spring Victorias Secret has a super sale on their lotion, it is like 6/$30.00. Mike usually buys me some and I use it through out the year. They last a long time and smell super! Dollar store has some great ones too, I often will pick up Emma or the little girls some of their own lotion from there. You men, there are some great body lotions from Old Spice, Axe or even Dove,
Even on days that I may not get dressed until 11 am, (that never happens to any of you right? ) Put some lotion on when you get dressed and just smelling it makes you feel better! Even if I don’t get to shower, hey I smell good! As you day goes on, every once in awhile you will get a little scent of the lotion and it will make you take notice and feel a little happier! Keep some in your car or your purse. Have a few minutes waiting somewhere, do a mini hand massage, you will feel a little happier. It sounds too easy doesn’t it, but it really works! Isn’t that what we want? Something simple that works!
Bonus: Let your little ones play too! I give them the lotion and tell them they can rub it on my feet or my hands. They love it!! It can keep them busy for a few minutes, now I would not suggest a foot massage in public… but a hand massage super idea!
So super easy and super simple… Smell good!!
See you next Tuesday for tip number 2! That doesn’t mean wait until next Tuesday to stop by in the blog, stop in often… I would love for you to pop in every day!
