There are very few things that make adults happy. The word ‘adult’ here is used loosely because some of you are 18 and you only barely qualify as adults. Truth is, the older you get, the more simple things make you happy.
1. Finding the perfect grocery store
Not everyone can say that they have achieved this. Do you know how blissful it feels to find a store that meets all your shopping needs and also has good vibes? It’s a 10/10 experience that is simple but also makes you happy.
2. Paying your bills on time
Just so you know, it will hurt like hell when the money for said bills leaves your account. But knowing that you can have peace of mind for a short while slaps.
3. Taking naps
The older you get, the easier it becomes to fall asleep. You’ll nap when they break your heart for the fifth time, when you don’t get that promotion you wanted, and every time you get debited for breathing.
4. Choosing what you want to eat
Growing up, you had to settle for whatever your parents let you eat. As an adult, you settle for what your bank account will let you eat. But at least you get to choose.
5. Practical gifts
When you are young, gifts like socks, plants, or weighted blankets might make you think that the giver hates you. But as you get older, you realize that those gifts might be simple but they’ll make you really happy. This does not mean that you should become the kind of person that gives people socks oh. Spa tickets are also practical.
6. Weekends with no plans
See, going out and having the time of your life is fun and all but staying in and just chilling with no plans, not even chores, gives happiness a new meaning.
7. Completing your to-do list
If you are the kind of person that makes lists to give yourself a sense of accomplishment, you already know how great it feels when you tick every box off or even just half of it. Create your happiness.
8. Having clean sheets
From the process of laying the bed, to lying on it, it’s a really good feeling. This is also a reminder to wash your sheets today guys.
