Tiny Thrills And Simple Pleasures

A bucket list is often thought of as a way of listing once-in-a-lifetime adventures. But it should also include a number of smaller, quickly achievable goals.

And what about a companion list for tiny thrills you want to experience a lot?


Jennifer Louden’s book,  A Year of Daily Joy: A Guided Journal to Creating Happiness Every Day, suggests creating a “thimble list.” This is a list of simple pleasures you can enjoy often.

This could be something as easy as making a meal from scratch, getting a manicure/pedicure/facial or other spa treatment, or hugging someone and telling them you love them.
