Make Yourself Happy This Summer

If you’re still in school, or even if you’ve graduated, everyone remembers being motivated at the start of the summer to reinvent themselves by the time classes start up again. Even if school has long since passed for you, it’s never too late to set new goals towards bettering yourself. A lot of people try to go for looks to make a more noticeable change. But this year, try something new. Instead of focusing on your appearance, dedicate the season to making yourself happy. Whether you’re in a relationship or you’re single, learning to be self-sufficient (and happy doing so!) is one of the best attributes you can gain. Volunteer One of the quickest ways to make yourself feel good is to help do good for others. You’ll feel proud of yourself for doing something to help your community, which can give you a more positive outlook on your life. The most important thing to consider when volunteering is that you’re putting your time towards something that you’re truly passionate about. That way, you’ll be …

The REAL Reason Why You Aren’t Happy

It’s virtually impossible to be happy when all you do is focus on the negative aspects of your life. Every time you speak, tweet, THINK negative things and more importantly allow these thoughts to effect how you feel you are attracting more of the same.  So keep talking about your stressful job, lazy s/o, and lack of funds if that’s the life you want to continue experiencing. Do you really want to be happy? Start focusing on feeling good and putting your mind to focus on the things that you do want. Stop complaining to everyone about your problems and instead make a conscious effort to really focus on your blessings and all of the amazing things you desire that will essentially make you feel happy. Make a Pinterest board if you have to, but do something that will allow you to put your energy towards positive thoughts. Like the quote above says, happiness is a habit which means we need to develop it over time.  How your life turns out is on you so make …

B.A.D. Girl Photo Diary: The Color Run #Happiest5k

Last weekend I participated in my first ever 5k called The Color Run, which is equal to about 3.1 miles! The run took place at Citified in Queens, NY.  Now I must make it clear that I am no runner so I agreed to participate because this run is all about having fun, feeling happy and being active. Plus, you get splashed with color throughout which makes it impossible not to have a blast! So here are a few photos from our day. I can check  off participating in a 5k run from my bucket list now! This was such a fun feel good event that was so much fun we didn’t want the race to end. It didn’t even feel like 3 miles! I definitely recommend everyone participate at least once because you will have a blast! BTW in case you are curious the color used is dyed corn starch powder and yes, it comes off easily. 🙂 Have you ever participated in a 5K run? XOXO Nicole For more info about The Color Run visit here.

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Do More of What Makes You Happy

I’ve mentioned in previous posts about how I am on a mission to do more of what makes me happy this year and less of the crap I don’t want to do. I truly believe that I am summoning more happiness into my life by simply doing me without any fear. Time is flying by and I wont be any younger than I am right now so I want to enjoy this life of mine! Start saying “YES” to things you want instead of hesitating. That hesitation is what messes you up. If you feel good about your decision you won’t regret making it. I’ve said yes to an EDM festival, a 5k run, a summer concert, a road trip and other things like having a weekend to myself, eating extra dessert and reading an actual book! So come on, let’s do more happy together! What is something you are doing that makes you happy? xoxo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Remember What Happiness Really Is…

It’s easy for us to get caught up in seeking happiness from people, places, and material possessions, but real happiness comes from the journey. Make every day and every moment a happy one. Keep people who support, love and encourage you in your circle. Do something you love everyday. Work towards your dream everyday. Fall in love with YOURSELF more and more each day. Respect the lows and the highs. Enjoy the ride! What are you happy about today? xo Nicole image via Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  Youtube  Shop
