Happier Challenge: Find Beauty

happier-challenge-beauty-082514Gooooooood Monday morning! The last days of summer are upon us, and it’s a perfect time for this week’s challenge. Ready? Here you go:

Look for something beautiful outside today and pause to appreciate it.

It doesn’t have to be anything super big or significant; in fact, we know that small happy things bring us more lasting joy than the bigger stuff, so go with whatever strikes you. In fact, this is a perfect challenge to try every single day this week. Why not? The world is filled with beauty!

Need some inspiration to help your week along and get you excited for the challenge? Ask (or don’t; I’m psychic!) and ye shall receive:

  • Speaking of seeing beautiful things, did you know there may soon be an app to help you plan your happiest walk vs. the quickest one? Fast is nice, but happy is better!
  • If you love beaches (or, really, even if you don’t), check out these fantastic photos of unusual beaches in nearly every color. Yep, there’s an orange one.
  • This little video may be a plug for Caitlin Freeman’s pastry cookbook, but seeing her modern-art desserts is truly a thing of beauty. Mondrian cake! It’s almost too beautiful to eat, I think.

Get out there and enjoy your week and all of the beautiful things you see around you! And don’t forget to come share about it on Happier, too. We love to hear about what’s making you happier!
