Let’s face it; there isn’t always time to plan for pleasure. That’s where finding and relishing simple pleasures comes in. The key to reducing stress and living a life you love through simple pleasures is to be intentional in finding them and grateful for experiencing them. Following is a list of mine. I’ve added them to the worksheet below with space for you to write your own. Print it out, fill it out, and put it somewhere that will help you to remember to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
