You’ll find happiness with a select few friends. While big parties are great, it’ll be the deep conversations with your few absolute best friends. Talking into the late hours, sharing emotional moments of each others’ histories. And you’ll come away with deeper connections.
You’ll find happiness at work. You normally just suffer as you watch the minutes tick by until you have to go home, but you’ll find little pockets of happiness where you work. Praise from the boss, burgeoning friendships with coworkers–this November, work won’t feel so terrible.
You’ll find happiness on your corner of the Internet. Whether it’s a carefully curated FYP on TikTok or the niche fandom Tumblr pages you still follow, you’ll find like-minded people who make you feel seen. After all, it’s nice to know you aren’t alone in the world.
You’ll find happiness in a flower garden. November is bringing some fresh flowers, like tulips and maybe even early budding lilacs. Spend time with the flowers and you’ll feel a lot of the emotional weight you’ve been carrying fall away.
You’ll find happiness in a good book. You might not be that much of a reader, but if you give yourself some space this November to just sit by yourself in a comfy chair or under a shady tree, that book could turn out to be the best place for you to shut off your thoughts.
You’ll find happiness in making art. Some people think of you as this left-brained analytical person, but you have an artistic side to you, too. This month, let it out with doodles, paintings, knitting project–whatever speaks to your heart.
You’ll find happiness going somewhere alone. You normally wouldn’t even dream of going to a movie theater or a restaurant by yourself, but if you let yourself go out of your comfort zone this month, you’ll find that you can gain a ton of confidence when you try things alone.
You’ll find happiness spending time with animals. Nothing beats hugging a dog or stroking a cat that’s fallen asleep on your lap. If you don’t have a pet of your own, seek one out this month. Walk a friend’s dog, visit a cat café–whatever it takes to get some puppy or kitty cuddles.
You’ll find happiness visiting with family. You love your family, but you’re not always keeping up with their lives. This November, make a point to call or visit with someone you care about. It could be your all-time favorite family member, or the one you haven’t seen in ages. Or both!
You’ll find happiness cooking a meal for friends. You like to do things for the people you care about. It’s your way of showing them how much they mean to you. This month, show the love by making a home-cooked meal for your inner circle.
You’ll find happiness as you look up at the stars. Sometimes, you’re so preoccupied with what you’re working on that you’re never looking up. Take a moment to stare up at the sky. Pick a nice clear night and enjoy the stars. You might have to drive out beyond surrounding light pollution, but it’d be worth it.
You’ll find happiness on a long drive at night. There’s something magical about driving down darkened roads while you listen to slow music and letting the wind whip around you. Even better when you have someone in the car to enjoy it with.
