Post below: What’s one simple thing you do that brings you joy? I have a confession, my natural tendency is to live my life 90% in the future, worrying and ruminating about things or preparing for scenarios that often never come to pass.
But the truth for all of us is that all that we have, all that exists is this second, this very moment. During concussion recovery, I had to work on retraining a frenetic, runaway brain to focus on the moment, and to try to find ways to inject simple joy into my life. To do this is especially difficult during dark seasons in life - when you’re suddenly looking at the future and nothing seems entirely certain.
Before this, I got a lot of satisfaction and energy from accomplishments and achieving big, moving from one milestone to the next, hustling and relishing in the act of pushing myself. But this thing, this unexpected life event that dragged me to the ground in so many ways, forced me to find happiness and pleasure in very small things.
The obvious go-to, the shortcut for instant happiness for me has been food, but the initial loss of taste and smell nixed that option for me. I had to find other small things, like the simple exercise of clasping a mug of tea in my hands, focusing on what the warmth felt like radiating in my palms, the sensation of steam on my face. Trying to quiet my mind as it tried to race forward into uncertainty, saying to myself instead - in this moment, this is perfect, this is enough.
One thing I found particularly effective? I have a relatively unworn onesie covered in Big Macs in my closet. (I mean, what is it about brand new fleece or new sweatshirts? I know we’re supposed to wash new clothes but that fresh fuzziness is SO NICE.)
So I’d wear this silly giant onesie built for a 6-foot-tall man and just curl up and feel what it was like to be cozy and encapsulated by fuzzy fleece all over. I‘d repeat to myself, the future can wait. In this moment, you are safe. You are completely safe.
This weekend I’m cozied down and knitting and doing other things that bring small joy 😊 Looking forward to reading below - what’s a hack you’ve figured out that instantly makes you happier? @natashazouves

Doberman cuddles ❤️ Unfortunately Doberman’s have an undeserved bad reputation. They are true sweethearts that unfortunately can be manipulated through handling and training
Ассалаумағалейкүм барша қауым!
Бұл мен білім алған №157 жалпы білім беретін мектеп. Мен өз мектебім үшін мақтанамын себебі, бұл мектеп өз қасиеттерімен ерекшеленеді. Ұстаздарымен, əкімшілігімен жəне қарапайым сырт бейнесіменде ерекше.
Менің ардақты ерекше ұстазым, басшым: Света Ахметова.
Қазақтың тағдыры, келешекте ел болуы да мектебінің қандай негізде құрылуына барып тіреледі. Мектебімізді таза, берік һәм өз жанымызға /қазақ жанына/ үйлесетін негізде құра білсек, келешегіміз үшін тайынбай-ақ серттесуге болады.
