When is the last time you felt amazing? ….
If your answer doesn’t include sometime today, then it’s time for some real talk. Feeling amazing doesn’t need to be limited to the high points in life – you know, like when you PR at a race, go on a dream vacation, or have your first encounter with a real, live sloth.
Feeling amazing can and should be a part of your everyday life. For me, it often comes from everyday things like a warm hug, a good, sweaty yoga class, snuggle time with my dog, and the first sip of my morning smoothie.
If you’re not feeling amazing everyday, read on for some of my favorite simple feel-good habits that will help you embody the #feelamazingeveryday hashtag.

It’s important to be grateful for what you have in life – both for the small things (ahem, puppy snuggles) and the big things (like race PRs). Practicing gratitude is a consciously-developed habit that helps us stay aware of all the good we have in our life.
