Go for a walk in your neighborhood and take pictures of what you see. Trees? Bugs? Park? Or, drive around town and take pictures of your stomping grounds to notice what you may not have noticed before! Or, document your day with photos…from breakfast, to chores, to any daily activity, to bedtime routine. It’s like a picture diary of your day. Google “photo challenges” for more ideas!
Write and mail a thank you note! Everyone gets excited to have personal mail delivered. So, let someone know what you appreciate about them. Not only will you feel good about doing it, you will most likely be the highlight of the day for the receiver! Buy a card, make a card, use colorful pens, add stickers, include a photo…get creative!
Have a Should-less Day!
Actress Ellen Burstyn says,
“I have what I call should-less days. Today is a day where there’s nothing I should do. So I only do what I want to do. And if it’s nap in the afternoon or watch TV and eat ice cream, I get to do it.”
