15 Simple Pleasures Money Can’t Buy

 

Regardless of the amount of money in your pockets, Earth’s beauty will forever be one thing that we ALL can afford.

Take pleasure in knowing that such vastness and beauty can be enjoyed at any time – day or night – for FREE!

All too often a person can feel stagnant or depressed because of their financial stature. Society moves so quickly that we can easily forget about the simple free pleasures that surround us every day.

Sunrise/Sunset

SUNSET

Forget about the meeting this morning or the stressful day you may have had at work or home. If you woke up and opened your eyes you can take in this simple pleasure. Cozy up in your robe or blanket, grab your favorite beverage and go have a seat at this beautiful spectacle.

 

Playground

PLAYGROUND

The playground was already built in a city near you. Whether young or old – a push on a swing or a ride down a slide always triggers an immediate smile or laughter across the face.

 

Hiking

Hiking in the park is a wondrous free exploration that never gets old. Grab some old boots or shoes and venture into the woods. Some cities offer meet-ups or guided tours, however, the best hikes I have ever experienced have been the unscripted trails that I choose on my own. Encounter butterflies and interesting insects you may not see every day.

After a long day or for an early start to your day begin with a walk through your neighborhood or nearby trail.
