50+ Simple Pleasures To Enjoy This Summer

Simple pleasures, the little things we often take for granted. The smell of baking cookies, the starry night, the first tulip of the year, our world is filled with these simple wonders.

Reminding ourselves of these simple pleasures and feeling grateful for them can boost our happiness and well-being. How can we not feel joy, for instance, when our fur baby gives us a cuddle or a human baby falls asleep in our arms? Some things cannot be described in words. They are simply a feeling, a feeling of complete bliss.

With summer on its way, I wanted to highlight some of the simple pleasures of this sunny season. Hoping these will inspire you to notice the simple pleasures in your every day. Happy summer, my friends!
