8 Simple But Magical Things To Do

These simple things can bring magic into your life.

Mikaela Purgason

Everyone goes through stages of life where they are bored. Nothing seems to makes sense and every where that you look is another pointless task waiting for you. To spark up your life and make it a little less boring, try these super simple eight things that will surely make your life more magical.

Dance in the rain

If you are ever having a bad day and sky matches how you're feeling, I encourage you to go outside and dance. It sounds silly and you may look stupid, but there is something about dancing under the storm clouds with the rain falling all around and on you that silences the depressing thoughts. If you are bored and in need of excitement just go outside and dance. Watch your movements transform your mood and life.

Look at the stars from a roof top

Stars have always held a special place in my heart. Some night I have found myself staying up late just so that way I could see them. I would curse the clouds if they ever got in the way of me and the stars. Stars are beautiful. They are proof that something greater-- something not of the world exists. Call it what you want, but laying on a rooftop watching the stars is something that everyone should take the time for.

Kiss a stranger

There have been so many times that I have struck up a conversation with a person I did not know and instantly fell in love with who they were and what they had to say. There is something about kissing someone you hardly know that lights your entire world up. It's magical. If you are ever given the opportunity, kiss that person you fell in love with two seconds ago. (if it is mutual of course).

Run through a field of flowers

When I say run I mean full out sprint as fast as you possibly can. Find a flower field and then take off. For a few seconds, pretend the world is yours. Pretend that you are the only person on earth. It's just you and the flowers. It sounds dumb and probably gross, but I promise you that the feeling you get when you do this is worth you being out of breath for a few seconds afterwards.

Swim in a waterfall

Hike up a mountain and find a waterfall. Then, swim in it. Let the water cleanse you. I have always found the most life and magic in water, but nothing compares to that of a natural waterfall that God gifted into nature. If you ever see one and have the time, swim in it. Take all of the people you care about or keep it to yourself, but swim in it. It will change the way you see the world.

Hold a baby

The most magical thing in life is innocence and nothing is more innocent than a baby. Babies are proof that there is good to be found in a world of constant chaos and tragedy. If you ever want to feel better almost instantly, hold a baby. Listen to their sweet giggles and watch as their little finger curl around one of yours. Babies contain the magic of life that so many miss.

Sing to the trees

By sing, it can be an actual song or a little hum. Just make a noise to them as they sway in the wind. Sing with the birds and listen as the voice of nature reveals itself to you in return for your music. Trees contain a source of life from God and maybe, just maybe as you are singing God will allow you to see the life he gives them.

Scream at the top of a mountain

If you are ever frustrated and can not shake the feeling off, go to the top of a mountain or to the highest place you can reach. Then, scream. Scream as loud as you can until you can not scream any longer. Release your anger and frustration. Let the whole world hear it. You will feel better, I swear it.

I strongly suggest trying these 8 things out!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
