Sometimes the tiniest purchase can make a huge difference in your overall happiness level. In my case, it was a pair of flannel pajamas for less than $20 that instantly elevated my mood and has continued to do so every day since I brought them home.
It might seem silly to be so enamored of simple pjs but...
One of life's best little luxuries is deliberate sleepwear. What do I mean by deliberate? I mean the opposite of what I usually do (and what I'm guessing most people usually do): sleep in whatever t-shirt, sweatpants, yoga pants, tank top etc has been demoted from fit-for-public to only-in-private. Am I right?
So a brand new pair of super soft flannel pajama bottoms with hidden details on the pockets (pockets!), pretty much makes me feel like queen of the world. And if you work from home like I do, you may spend an inordinate amount of time in your, ahem, 'sleepwear', which is all the more reason to splurge a little. And, as you can see, a splurge isn't necessarily defined by the amount of money spent - it's more about the way it makes you feel.
Do your pjs make you feel actively happy? What are the little things that do it for you?
