Our Favorite Ways to Savor the Moment
This post is sponsored by barkTHINS at Walgreens. All views expressed are that of our own. #MyHappyPlace
The summer months are all about savoring the moment. Both Jared and I have been reminding ourselves that despite the chaos, joy can be found in every moment of life. Just take a look around this beautiful earth we live on and take in the warm breeze, fresh air, and listen to those beautiful birds chirp.
It is so funny how a vacation can help you to clear your mind, and appreciate every moment just a little more. Some of life’s most simple treasures like laughter and smiles are free, while others are worth every penny to help savor the moment.
This past week Jared and I were reminded that life truly is a beautiful gift and is worth enjoying to the fullest!
Perhaps you need a mental recharge or new found appreciation for the little things?
To celebrate our happy place which happens to take place during the summer months, I wanted to share some easy ways to savor the moment:
Read a Book by the pool:
After coming back from a week-long southern vacation it is slightly hard to adjust back to life up North. Things just tend to move so fast-paced here.
We admit we miss the pool and them super cute windmill palm trees.
Gosh, there is nothing more relaxing and enjoyable than sitting by the pool with a book, and a good drink. You might not have time to read through an entire book, but taking the time to absorb one chapter at a time can be all you need to recharge your mind and soul.
Savor the moment with a quality snack:
I don’t know about you, but a quality chocolate snack sends all those good feelings throughout my body. Just seconds after biting into a piece of totally delicious barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds I get all them good feelings. The sweet and salty, rich flavors of dark chocolate enveloped with sweet coconut, and crunchy almonds made for a unique snack.
Unlike conventional milk chocolate, barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate are snackable slivers of dark chocolate paired with real, simple ingredients for a completely original take on snacking. They are a guilt-free snack that you can enjoy on the go. We even took a few bags with us on our vacation.
The best part of savoring the moment with this tasty chocolate snack is that barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate are made with Fair Trade ingredients. Available in several different flavors including seasonal varieties, there is a barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate variety for everyone.
I find mine at my local Walgreens which is right down the street from me. Walgreens is my go-to place for just about everything. I love how clean our store is and how friendly the staff is.
I admit, ever since smartphones really took off I have left my journal by the wayside. Recently, I have been trying to get back into it and jot down ideas, thoughts, and simple reminders. There is nothing like the nostalgic feeling of putting pen to paper.
Hydrate in Style:
Isn’t it weird that a drink can taste so much better when in a prettier cup?
Taking time to recharge with an ice cold glass of fruited water, or an adult beverage may be all you need to find your happy place. I plated our barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds so that we all could easily enjoy a piece or two.
Take a Walk:
Walking is the best thing to clear a busy mind. I find that strolling down a scenic walkway with lots of wildlife is so soothing for the soul. Breathing in fresh air and stopping to listen to the wildlife is truly wonderful when I am overly stressed or busy.
Embrace a Loved One:
While I am probably one of the least affectionate people, sometimes we all just need a human touch. Giving a loved one like a child or spouse a hug can help melt away stress and cleanse your soul. It is the perfect and free way to savor a moment or two!
Make Someone Else’s Moment Better: Spreading cheer and offering to share your services, time, or maybe even some barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate can really put a smile on someone’s face. My kids were so glad that we shared both our bags of barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate with them while on vacation because they were so yummy.
Now I not only have a husband who loves barkTHINS Brand Snacking Chocolate, but I also have three kiddos who cannot get enough!
