Life can be tough so it’s important to enjoy the little moments that bring us happiness.

I’ve seen a lot of talk online about romanticising your life and honestly, I’m here for it. I love the idea of taking the most basic and usually boring parts of your day and embracing them.

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.” – Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.

If you’re looking to make your everyday life a little more romantic and beautiful, here are a few things that you can try…

Writing in a new notebook. Nothing can beat writing in a new notebook. Your notebook has endless possibilities and you’re about to write something that could possibly be amazing. Get writing. Enjoy how the pen feels on the paper and think about how relaxing it is to let all your thoughts out.

Bike rides. Cycling through the country or city with the wind blowing through your hair while listening to the sounds around you? It sounds perfect. You can take in the sights or let your thoughts run wild.

Finishing a book. This can be a sad moment or a happy one, it all depends. But when you finish that very last sentence in a book, take a big breath and just think about the story you just enjoyed. Think of the lovely moments that you had with that book and all the things that you hope to remember about it forever.

Bus journeys. Have you ever sat on a bus, looked out of the window and pretended to be in a romance film? Because if you haven’t, I definitely recommend that you try it. You could also read a couple of chapters of a book, listen to your favourite songs or watch a video on your phone. Bus journeys are just great for some you time.

Wearing your favourite outfit. I can’t even see you but I can guarantee that you look great. Work that outfit and have a great time. Spin around and admire yourself. Tell everyone that you look fantastic. Embrace the day.

Drinking a cup of tea. This brings an instant cosy feeling. Think about how cosy you feel and cherish the moment. Use your tea drinking time to relax and think about the things you’re grateful for.

Getting home after a long day. Your home should be your sanctuary. That moment when you walk through the front door should make you feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off your shoulders. Get home, put on your loungewear and relax.

Trips to the book shop. There’s something magical about book shops. You can walk in and instantly feel transported to to a different universe. There’s something for everyone in a book shop. Next time you visit one, take it slow, explore each corner of the shop and wonder what the next story you read will be.

Getting into bed at the end of the day. Closing your eyes when they feel heavy, tucking yourself into the duvet and snuggling up is one of the best feelings.

These are just some of the things that you can start romanticising. There’s so many more possibilities but it’s always good to start somewhere.

If you have any more ideas on how to romanticise your life then let me know.

    These moments also came to my mind
    Feeling the water falling on you in the shower
    Taking a nice cold drink of water, maybe infused with some cucmber and lemon slices (that’s my usual drink of choice along aside from tea)
    The warm feeling the sunshine gives you 🙂

    This is a great post! It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the world and forget that even the smallest of things are important and should be enjoyed too. Although I did have a giggle to myself about riding a bike as I can’t romanticise that because I can’t ride a bike haha
