Did you know that just planning a trip will make you happier?! You don’t even have to go on it 🙂 The pleasant anticipation will stay with you for months until your trip.
So, even if you don’t end up going, do the research, put a date in the calendar and get happy! Of course you will want to do what you say you are going to do or you and anybody involved will be disappointed and the point is to create more happiness. Start small, plan a day adventure that could be a hike, a bike ride, a long walk, anything that you would enjoy and need to plan.
My daughter and I plan little things like a day long bike adventure which may be just a loop around the park finishing with a hotdog from the hotdog stand and for her it’s the best day ever. Another may be a drive somewhere 30 min or an hour away and to her it’s a different world. You could look at every possible adventure within a 1 hr. drive, pick a date and start planning. Take a bus, a train, or ferry. Mix it up. You’ll be happy you did
