Things That Make Me Happy

So after all my bad eating I still lost some weight, so that is a great thing! But food shouldnt be my go-to when I am upset. So here are some non-food things that make me happy (and yes 2 of them are food, however it is not eating them that makes me happy, but the act of enjoying them):

1. Reading in bed
2. Scrapbooking
3. Listening to my favorite music
4. Fall, the leaves, the smells, the colors
5. Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. I love drinking this in the fall slowly.
6. Talking to a good friend
7. Laughing and doing nothing with Kevin
8. Slowly enjoying a red wine
9. Singing
10. Cooking

Next time I feel like eating because I am upset, I will choose one of these things to do simply because the act of doing them just feels great. Can I explain to you why reading in my bed feels great? No, but it just does :)

PS: I love your list! I should come up with one of those so I have something to fall back on next time I feel like pigging out. A list would really be helpful!
