We all know that life can get pretty stressful no matter who you are.
I have med school interviews coming up, and I've been really feeling the stress creep up on me.
It's times like these that I like to think about the small things in life that make me happy - those things that are easily attainable, slightly frivolous, but somehow nicely comforting.
Here are some of those things :)
Beautiful fall days
I love how just the scent of autumn can sometimes evoke nostalgic feelings and bring back random memories
I love to cook, and whenever I do I absolutely have to make a meal that consists of starch, protein, and veggies.
Getting everything done on my to-do list
I am addicted to making lists. I love to make lists for everything, and I probably love completing all the things on my list even more; checking each thing off is so strangely satisfying =)
I am obsessed with all things mango - mango smoothies, mango ice cream, mango juice, mango yogurt - yea... you get the point.
Receiving online orders in the mail
Opening packages is like opening presents on Christmas - by the time they've come you have already forgotten about how much you spent on them =x
I love relaxing with a good face mask - it's soothing and nice to pamper yourself once in a while. My favorite at the moment is the CVS brand mint julep mask!
Having my refrigerator freshly stocked
I love to cook and I love to eat. Something about having a fully stocked frig makes me feel complete and ready to face the week.

So there we have it - a stress relieving exercise for me, and hopefully a way for you guys to get to know me better =)
What small things do you love?
