Pick Me Ups Pt. 2

A while back I wrote a blog post with a list of things that feel good. After a great response, I figured a 'Pt. 2' was in order.

A list of things that feel great:

  • Strawberry picking.
  • A walk in the woods - sunshine peeping through the trees.
  • Having a special place all to yourself to go to when you need to get away. 
  • Reading the book that's been sat on your shelf for too long. 
  • The first snow fight of the year.
  • Swimming.
  • Time spent with your siblings.
  • Learning.
  • Beating your personal best.
  • Finding trinkets & money in the jeans you were about to wash. 
  • Family cooking. 
  • Deserted beaches.
  • The smell of the lake right after it rains.
  • Snuggling in to a giant towel after a shower. 
  • Taking photos. 
  • Waking up in time for sunrise.
  • Searching for shells in the sand. 
  • That feeling after a workout/run.
  • The smell of freshly cut grass.
  • Knowing that all is well.
  • Finding a starfish at the beach. 
  • The sound of wind in the trees. 
  • The sound of the ocean at high tide.
  • Meeting new people and having them become good friends faster than you thought possible. 
  • Finding common ground with someone you were unsure about.
  • Knowing and feeling that some person really likes you as you are.
  • When the weather is just warm enough for you to eat outside.
  • Listening to the falling rain drops. 
  • Watching the dew drops on flower petals early in the morning. 
  • Latte art.
  • Compliments and praise.
  • Taking photos. 
  • Searching for shells in the sand. 
  • Rekindling old friendships.
  • Knowing you taught someone something valuable.
  • Walking barefoot on wet grass.
  • Building a fire on the beach.
  • Knowing you did your best and it bloody well paid off.


  1. Lovely list. Makes me want to write my own & then read through it, every time I feel down & need inspiration. <3

    1. Thanks! It's one of my biggest boosts, worth doing I reckon.
