What’s Making Me Happy, Vol. 17

I swear it was just Halloween, but here we are at the end of November! Thanksgiving was a great chance to remember all the things I’m grateful for. Friends and family topped the list for the year. I’m so lucky to have people in my life that make me happy! For the purposes of this post, I do want to share a few (much) smaller things this month that have raised my spirits 🙂

Here’s what’s been making me happy lately:

Lavender and Flax Seed Neck Pillow (Hot/Cold)
I just pop this puppy in the microwave for 90 seconds, wrap it around my neck and am transported into a tranquil haven. The pillow hugs my neck perfectly and smells absolutely delightful. Good-bye neck tension! 

Panda Planner
I’m forever trying to get my schedule under control. I’ve tried all sorts of planners, apps, etc., but the Panda Planner is first one that helps with the logistics of the day-to-day, but also has a focus on the more important things in life. In addition to an hourly schedule, a task checklist and section for prioritizing projects, each day has sections for reflecting on what I’m grateful for, listing what I’m excited about, choosing a focus, and making an exercise goal. I’m not sure if the planner has made me significantly more productive, but I love that it’s making me more thoughtful with my approach to the day.

Katchi, by Nick Waterhouse (featuring Leon Bridges)
This song is so darn catchy. At first I was a little worried that the word “katchi” might mean something unsavory, but all it is is a Louisiana Indian term for “loving touch.” I’m okay with that! I’m going to continue belting it out at the top of my lungs in the car 🙂

    Ooo the neck pillow sounds wonderful. I’d probably just leave it on all the time when I’m lounging at home!

      That’s pretty much what I’ve been doing! 🙂
