With the high-paced society we live in, it is not uncommon for people to lose sight of the little things that bring joy to their lives every day. We spend so much time counting down the days to the weekend, our next vacation or the next holiday that we find it hard to find happiness in the ordinary. When you start to feel stressed out about your work week or you are in the midst of a breakdown during finals week, just remember that there are several reasons to be happy.

1. Clean sheets.

5. The taste of coffee after a long night.
