Simple pleasures are brief experiences that emerge in an everyday setting, and they bring a positive impact on one’s life. They are accessible to most people at little or no cost. These pleasures are often personal. This means that what may be a simple pleasure for you may not be a simple pleasure to another person. Simple pleasures should be embraced because they bring you joy and happiness, compared to temptations, which bring inner conflicts.
Mostly, simple pleasures depend on one’s creativity. The pleasures are derived from any small opportunities available for happiness. The ordinary simple pleasures include sleeping in on a rainy day, finding money that you did not know you had, hearing the right song at the right moment, among other pleasures.
A specific type of cat or dog can also be a source of simple pleasures. Dogs are known for some great things such as their loyalty and love. In addition to that, there are small, daily pleasures that only those who have had a close encounter with dogs can understand. The following are some of the simple pleasures that dogs provide:
- Dogs are the perfect alarm clocks. When dogs are routinely trained to perform a specific task at a particular time, their brain gets used to that practice. Whenever the time gets close for that exercise, the dogs will do that particular task that they have been trained to do. Therefore, one can train a dog to bark, cuddle, or kiss at a specific time, and this will become an alarm clock.
- Playing a drop and fetch game with your dog can also be a source of happiness. After a busy day at work, you can take your dog to the backyard and use tennis balls to play with your dog. Throwing the balls down or far away with the dogs chasing after the balls to fetch them and bring them back to you brings great happiness.
