As I was sitting in the waiting room of my doctor’s office this morning, awaiting my annual check up (which is pretty much the only time I ever find myself reading a printed magazine), I read an article about a female best-selling author from Hamburg, who makes time for a so-called “enjoy-the-little-stuff day” every now and then. On these days, she deliberately shakes up her daily routine, e.g. by brushing her teeth with her left hand (although she is right-handed) and ordering whatever the person in front of her orders for lunch, in an attempt to truly enjoy the little stuff!!!
And, quite frankly, I think it’s a brilliant idea!
We all slip into our very own daily routines: Getting up, taking a shower, brushing our teeth… But instead of taking the little stuff for granted, let’s just try to enjoy them here and there!
