Check out this list of small stuff that makes you happy and then think of all the small things that you’re thankful for. What trivial thing brings you joy? The perfect Guy Fieri impression? A giant slice of New York Pizza? Sno-cone ice? The little things that bring happiness differ from person to person, but the most important thing about all of the things on this list is that they’re so insignificant, it’s hard to imagine them making anyone happy – but they really do.
We all have small things that make us happy for some reason, whether it’s a hot cup of coffee or taking the perfect selfie, we can’t explain why those dumb little things are the best part of our day, they just are. What are the things that make you disproportionately happy? Is it a well-oiled Slip 'N Slide? Or is it the first bite of a frozen candy bar? Put on a crisp pair of socks and check out these little things that make you happy for some reason.
Vote up the small, mundane things that occasionally happen throughout the day and make you happier than they probably should. Feel free to add the little things that make you really happy to the list and then go out and crunch some leaves.
