Why Small Pleasures Matter


Society inundates us with messages that something needs to be exotic, expensive or large scale for us to really enjoy it - the rare watch, the designer jacket, the international trip away. But often it's the opposite - the easily available, familiar and small scale can bring us immense comfort & pleasure.

Appreciating a small pleasure means trusting your own responses and following what feels good for you. It's a practice that frees you from the external & reconnects you with your inner compass. The warmth of your morning coffee, watching the light move in the trees, the taste of a summer peach, tea with a friend. These are the little joys that add up to create a life well lived.
