Happy Places

In line with the other posts about positivity, I thought I would add one about places you feel most happy, relaxed, or positive. It could be your room, the beach, the forest, skiing in the snow, or anything that comes to mind.

 

When I was younger, I lived ten minutes away from a beautiful beach in South Carolina. Every weekend, my friend and I would go and play in the sand, swim, sunbathe, and bond. I still remember how much fun I have and return to the beach during the winter holidays :smileyhappy:

Anywhere in my house, my backyard, it's huge and I love hiding in it, we have loads of trees.

The beach or park. :smileyhappy:

In/near water -- I love being in or near water -- whether it's walking along the beach ankle deep in water, going for a swim, sitting in a bath, rafting in a river, etc..I feel happy when I'm close to water. I can't explain why, but it just makes me feel revitalized. I should have been a pirate. :smileytongue:

 

At the piano -- I don't play very well, but I lose all sense of time when I'm at the piano. It's my creative outlet.

 

Anywhere but here -- travelling always makes me feel good. I love visiting new places and experiencing different cultures. It clears my mind and gives me a lot of perspective.

I couldn't agree more! I find myself at peace when I'm walking/driving by a body of water, or sitting by the pool...anywhere surrounded by water, really :smileyhappy:

 

Even when I'm at the airport I feel this sense of serenity. There's something about traveling and going to different places that gives me good vibes and introspection.

Hi Ry22-

 

My happy place is the beach! I live a few blocks away and when it's gorgeous out, I like to go run to my favorite coffee shop. They have the best coffee and it always puts me in a good mood.

 

Another happy place of mine is sitting in the sun and reading a good book. It can be a park, coffee shop, pool etc.

Right now my happy place is the park with my dog. I sit there and read or text and my beast either lays down in the grass or takes a walk to smell everything. lol It's so peaceful in the middle of the day when no one is around and i dont have to worry about anyone being afraid of him so I can let him off of the leash for a bit. It's a happy place for both of us. lol :smileywink:

Hi ry22,

 

My happy place is definitely the beach.  Anytime I need to relax or unwind, siting in the sun is all I need.  Something about the warmth of the sun on my face, makes everything all better!  Water flowing is also relaxing.  I'm going to do some paddle board yoga this weekend with my sister & mom, which I'm sure will be super positive :smileyvery-happy:

 

xo, Mia
