Making the most of International Day of Happiness

International Day of Happiness is the perfect excuse to treat yourself. You work hard 364 days a year; take this chance to relax and spend the day doing the things you love best. No idea how to spend the day? Here are a few suggestions!

1. Do a Favorite Activity – One of my favorite things to do is sit and watch old movies. Putting on a Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn film reminds me of being young and sitting at home on lazy weekends watching them in a marathon with my siblings. With the temperatures warming up, this is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Plan a jog along your favorite path at the lake or even just a day shopping the outlet mall.
2. Visit a Favorite Place– The ultimate way to treat yourself would be to take a mini vacation! If you can manage to get away I highly recommend you take full advantage and visit someplace fabulous. Even those of us who are not lucky enough to be able to escape life at the drop of a hat can still take advantage of this option. Think of your favorite spot in town and make a detour on your way home today. There is a creek running through my town that I love, but never visit enough. Today, I plan to take the long way home so that I can just sit and enjoy it for a few minutes.

3. Indulge in a Favorite Treat – Chocolate is known to cause the release of endorphins, so it’s no wonder that we experience joy when we eat it! Treating yourself to some Delysia Chocolatier treats is the perfect way to indulge and  bring on a spark of pleasure to enjoy your International Day of Happiness just that much more. If you already know and love our products, I suggest you enjoy both an old favorite and a product you’ve never tried before. If you’ve never enjoyed our handmade artisan treats then I suggest you try both a truffle collection and one of our chocolate barks. The Signature Collection is a great introduction to Delysia products because it features 9 delicious flavors. It is no surprise this half milk chocolate, half dark chocolate truffle collection is among the most popular. A great chocolate bark to pair with this collection is the White Chocolate Coffee Bark. This bark is the perfect way to enjoy Delysia’s creamy white chocolate.white chocolate coffee bark
