The more moments of pleasure you have in your day, the better you may feel. Stopping to take note of simple pleasures during a break in your fast-paced day can help lower stress, calm your mind, and lift your spirits. But sometimes you have to make an effort to stop and pay attention to the simple pleasures around you. So schedule a break today and take note of the fresh scent of cut grass or flowers. Or listen to the birds singing outside your window. Take delight in the laughter of a small child. Savor the taste of your first sip of coffee, or the zesty sweetness of a piece of fruit.

What daily pleasures do you take the most delight in?
