    Thank you for this list! I definitely get excited about small things–like new baby goats at our local zoo!!!

    Love this list. I wouldn't have included every one of these. I think stressing "being in the moment" would be the only other thing I would add. Also, if you're every feeling bad-just smile. It does wonders! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    Sometimes I think there's a lot of power in relinquishing control–it lets you feel free, uplifted, and able to take on the things you can change. Great tips!

    Hmm, I like this. I think I'm a happy person by nature, it takes a lot to ruffle me up and make me angry. I will say, my family and the drama that ensues is a real downer for me, but since I live far away I find that I am a bit happier (sad, but true!) I also save time for things that make me smile in the day, usually a good book, time with my kids and husband, and a little exercise;)

    Great post! I am the same way, I have to have a plan! I've learned from infertility, that I should have a plan but never expect to stick to it! It's definitely important to let go of the things you have no control over. Those are gravity issues that we will never be able to change. I often think of the serenity prayer when I encounter these things. What I like to do is set small, reasonable goals for myself and then once I get them checked off I feel really accomplished which definitely helps me feel happier! Even if it's something as simple as getting my car through the car wash or getting a load of laundry done! Happy friday girl!

    This is a great post! I find that days I tell myself to be thankful for the little things are days I stay most positive.

    you are such a positive person, it's so wonderful! i love these tips, especially keeping in mind to not stress over things we cannot change. it's a biggie. also, sometime last year i was very stressed with moving and getting a dog, all big things! the way i would relax would be with hot tea. it was so therapeutic, i was having 6 cups a day sometimes, which is a lot!

    Great list, the hard part for me is remembering them! I like to take a moment every day just for myself and to remember everything is temporary, even is the stress, pain, and anxiety seems never ending. Stay strong!

    This is a great post. I also am the same way. If I don't have a plan I freak out. I am trying to remind myself more frequently that everything will work out the way it is supposed to in the end.

    the cleaning thing. for sure. I HATE cleaning but I'm always so much happier when my house is clean.

    I've been making an effort lately to be more mindful of all the things I'm thankful for, and it's so true that it's an instant happiness booster!

    It's so hard not to stress about the things you can't control. Definitely one of my downfalls as well. But I'm working on it!

    These are all such great tips! I find when I focus on the things I already have rather than the things I don't, I'm much happier!

    Great tips! I have a few go-to happy things that I read or think about! (Kind of like how an actor has a few bad things to think about during a crying scene). It really helps me get centered!

    I'm sorry you're dealing with so much anxiety currently but I think you're handling it in such a positive manner! Hang in there girl (:

    Love this!! Such a great reminder. I'm sorry that you're having some crazy in your life, but it sounds like you're handling it in the absolutely best way possible!

    Knowing what I can and cannot control is something I struggle with. I mean, I know. But letting go. But it is also the biggest thing in my life that makes a difference in how I handle life. SO I work hard on it and I keep working on it. Thanks for this!

    I love this! Your first point about control is actually something I drafted in a blog post about anxiety – I'm a control freak. I love to have a plan and know everything. I struggle with this, because not having a plan gives me anxiety. Every day I work on controlling within a means. I think part of this has to do with living in the moment, something I struggle with as well.

    These are such sweet tips. I reckon the main one for me is to be excited. Plan things to look forward to, try new things. But still make sure you're on track, because nothing causes stress more than bad time management.

    getting excited about the little good things is such a great tip, because I tend to freak out over the bad ones. Love your list!

    This is awesome and perfect for my current state. I'm like you- I need a plan. It's hard to not have one, but, I know whatever happens, you will be GREAT. Happy Friday!

    I needed this list! Life has definitely been a little stressful on my end, too, so it's nice to hear this list–especially the one about writing down all that we have to be grateful for. I've had that on my heart today and I think it'll soon become a blog post! šŸ™‚

    This list is wonderful and so true! I always find it funny that we tend to concentrate more on the things that go wrong and the things that we do not have instead of the things that go right and the things we already have. Being thankful is so important; it is also something I need to remember to do more of.

    Not letting the little getting to you is a big one. Also finding the happy in the little things, sometimes just a kind gesture can really make your day.
