POINT IS happiness, like love, is at its best when it's not complicated, fraught or difficult. Cutting back to basics is a good way to go. Enjoying the small everyday life things, taking your (one's, Ens) time to make a great cup of tea, ironing while doing the boogie to Stevie Wonder, whatever brings joy.

This is part of why I think the Hygge concept has caught on in the UK so much. Hygge is a celebration of the little things. Not trying so hard. Good honest, authentic care, love and attention. Not being on the smartphone all the time, sharing the talking time, reading a book, having a bath, digging in the garden with a headlamp on - oops, that might just be me. But you know what I mean right.
