Do you tend to rush through most of your day? Maybe you gulp down breakfast while answering emails or put your makeup on while sitting in traffic?
We certainly don’t blame you for hurrying through your to-dos. We’ve all got so much going on most days that if we don’t hustle it probably won’t get done. But sometimes when we’re busy, busy, busy, we look around at the end of the day and can barely remember what all we did — not to mention if we had any moments of happiness or contentment. Sound familiar?
Every once in a while I like to share with you people and resources that have benefited us here at EveryDay Happy and that may benefit you too.
I know from our survey (huge thanks to all of you for participating!) that many of you feel called to follow a passion and this month, we’re excited to be partnering up with a woman who more than half of our teammates have studied with to help us create and run EveryDay Happy.
With summer in full swing and many of us spending more cash being out and about than we did when we were mostly home last summer, we couldn’t think of a better time to re-examine our spending habits and check in on our bank balances.
We know money talk can seem boring, but it’s also necessary, so today, we’re sharing with you four of our favorite ways to get on top of personal finances with a simple, yet powerful money check-in.
With the Fourth of July holiday weekend approaching (for those of us in the U.S.), it feels like summer is in full swing — and what a difference a year has made!
For many of us, the vaccine rollout means we’re pretty much back to normal and enjoying summer BBQs, beach days, and catching up with friends. And we don’t know about you, but we’re vowing not to take any simple pleasures for granted again.
“You’ll see it when you believe it.” – Wayne Dyer
Every person on the planet wants to feel happy, be healthy, do work that’s satisfying, feel financially secure, and enjoy loving relationships — but not all of us believe we deserve to.
Whether it’s the side of town where we grew up, level of education, relationship status, eating habits, drinking habits, or any of the shoulda-woulda-coulda past mistakes we’re still punishing ourselves for…
Confession time: Over the past year or so, our team has let certain self-care tasks fall by the wayside. Things like annual dermatologist appointments and physicals, teeth cleanings, and even fun stuff like pedicures. Can you relate?
It’s not surprising we pushed them to the backburner (hello, pandemic!), but now that things are starting to return to a more normal state, we’re realizing it’s time to play catch up.
Isn’t Friday a happy day indeed? Come Friday the feeling of excitement and possibilities fills the air. And when Saturday rolls around, we’re well into experiencing weekend bliss. 🙂 But have you ever noticed how that weekend energy tends to shift around Sunday afternoon?
While it should be a day to relax and do things that bring us joy, sometime after lunch many of us end up feeling anxious about the week to come.
Does it ever seem like your partner just can’t do anything right?
We’ve all felt it … Those little annoyances start to pile up, and poof! Pretty soon all we can do is zero in on the negatives. We get so caught up in all the “wrong” things they’re doing, that we aren’t able to notice any of the “right” stuff.
But chances are, you’re together with your partner for a reason and there’s a lot of love there.
When’s the last time you relaxed? Really, truly, relaxed (guilt-free!)?
Even when weekends roll around, it can be hard to allow ourselves to do nothing — especially when things are piling up on our to-do list. But this weekend, we want to encourage you to resist the urge to do anything other than relax.
