Positive #2: The green area across the street.

In Barbara Fredrickson’s book, Positivity, she lists only a few Happiness Habits that Sonja Lyubomirsky does not: Find Nearby Nature. I have found this to be especially soothing and relaxing. Between clients I often take 10 minutes to go over, slip off my shoes and walk barefoot in the grass. There are two nice shade trees and even a picnic bench. I go there at least once every weekday and I have never seen anyone else there using it (besides birds). It is a wonderful haven and helps me to connect with Mother Earth.
