I’ve spent the last couple of days fighting off a horrible flu bug that’s seen me struggle with a migraine, labour under lethargy, sleep way more than usual, battle a temperature and deal with nausea.
It’s funny – when you’re well, you’ve got a list of things that you hope would make you happy. When you’re poorly, all that would make you happy is to be well again.
So I thought I’d highlight three little things that are worth appreciating.
Appreciate where you live
It’s easy to dash about day in and day out, never really noticing where you are.
I like to go on monthly photo walks with fellow photographers as it gives me a chance to really look at parts of the city I don’t usually see.
Stop and smell the flowers
Take a few moments every day to enjoy your surroundings. I love this time of year as the flowerbeds are a riot of colour.
Pausing to enjoy what the natural world has to offer is a fantastic way to rejuvenate yourself.
Be grateful for your health
This is the biggest one. I don’t get sick very often, so I tend to take my health for granted. I need to stop doing that!
Hopefully I’ll soon be able to stand up for longer than a few minutes without getting dizzy. As it is, I’m creating this post on my phone as I lie on the sofa!
