20 Tiny Moments That Instantly Boost Your Happiness

It’s time to tap into your everyday joy.

Big moments in life — weddings, births, new jobs, graduations — are special, but appreciating the smaller, daily occurrences can really maintain your happiness.

1. When your boss gives you a compliment. Genuine compliments are way more meaningful than superficial praise. If your boss gives you sincere accolades for your work on something, you know they mean it.

2. An upbeat conversation with a stranger. Research shows that social interactions with strangers can boost feelings of happiness.

3. Finding a parking space in a crowded lot. Thank you, driving gods.

4. When the weather is perfect. That skip in your step on a spring day isn’t all in your head. Studies suggest weather has an influence on your mood.

5. Taking a warm shower. Ahhh. Not only is it relaxing, it may help regulate your body temperature for better sleep.

6. When your favorite artist comes out with new music. Music has a direct influence on your mood — even sad songs can evoke positive emotions. Turn the volume up.

7. Finding money in your pocket. It’s like your own miniature version of winning the lottery.

8. When you finally get some peace and quiet. A little silence is good for your soul. Research suggests it could relieve stress and give your brain a much-needed break.

9. Snail mail. There’s just something about a tangible invitation or letter that brings glee. It’s way better than your inbox — which inevitably stresses you out.

10. The first few moments after a fresh snowfall. Is there anything more serene?

11. Crawling into bed with fresh sheets. There’s just something about a well-made bed that instantly puts your mind at ease.

12. When you cut a mango or avocado perfectly around the pit. Sweet, sweet success.

13. When someone surprises you with flowers. Any expression of gratitude — whether you’re on the giving or receiving end — can improve your well-being.

14. When you recognize someone wearing your favorite team’s jersey or in another country. Hive fives all around.

15. The feeling you get after booking a trip. Start packing. Research shows planning a vacation can boost your happiness.

16. Listening to a baby giggle. Honestly, there’s no better sound in the world. Go on and laugh with them — studies show laughing can boost your happiness and even lower your blood pressure.

17. The look on your pet’s face when they see you. Now that’s unconditional love. Research shows pet ownership makes you happier.

18. Having a really good date with a loved one. It could be a significant other or just your best friend. Hanging with the special people in your life can reduce stress.

19. When your food comes at a restaurant. One word: mouthwatering.

20. The moment when you realize you’re incredibly content. A day with no complaints? That’s the good stuff. Happiness looks good on you.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our patients, employees and family are our top priority at Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C.

We ask you to not visit any of our locations if you have symptoms such as fever, sneezing, coughing and possible shortness of breath.

Please cancel your appointment and re-schedule once you are feeling better and are no longer suffering with symptoms.

Only non-symptomatic patients will be seen. No exceptions.

Accompanying family members – including children – are asked to remain in the waiting area and will not be allowed to enter the exam rooms.

During this time of high concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are taking extra precautions to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and cleanliness. Please be advised that we are carefully following recommendations from both the CDC and WHO and are here to help guide you through this time if needed.

Some steps we are taking to keeping safe:

  1. We know how important cleanliness is and always maintain the highest standards of cleanliness. To further offer you peace of mind, we have increased the frequency of the cleaning of our office.
  2. Rest assured that hand washing is strictly followed. Hand sanitizer is available to all staff and patients.
  3. Additionally, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the coronavirus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from your return date. We will gladly accommodate your needs to reschedule. At that time, a telehealth interface can be arranged if necessary.
