What is your happiest place? Where would you be if you had all the money and freedom and time in the world?
Describe your place—the weather, the natural and built environment surrounding you, the smells, the sounds, the textures.
Here’s my beloved place. It’s a lake in upstate New York. In talking about place with friends, I’ve found so many of us feel happiest in and around water–and of course, studies have found even just a water view can improve our emotional well-being.
Perhaps writing about water–or about a place that makes you feel safe and content and at home will have the same effect. Happy writing!
