Pursue Happiness This Independence Day

Independence Day commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Within this historic document is the powerful phrase: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” This phrase underscores the importance of happiness, a concept that is unique to each individual. At Edgar’s Bath Goods, we encourage you to pursue your own version of happiness, as we believe everyone deserves to achieve it.

The dictionary defines happiness as good fortune, pleasure, contentment, and joy. Let’s explore each of these aspects more deeply.

Good Fortune
Good fortune may seem elusive at times, but no matter the circumstances, there is always something to be grateful for. Shift your focus from what you lack to what you have. We won’t list specific things, but we encourage you to find something positive in your current situation. This mindset can help you feel a bit happier.

Pleasure
Pleasure can be found in the little things. Listen to the birds chirping in the morning, feel the breeze on your face, or listen to children playing at the park. Finding pleasure doesn’t require money, it only requires awareness.

Contentment
A writer once said, “I’ve learned to be content in whatever situation I’m in.” Achieving contentment can be challenging, but when you are satisfied with your circumstances, you can find a peace of mind that transcends your situation. Seek ways to be content with your life and yourself.

Joy
Are joy and happiness the same? Some say happiness depends on external factors, while joy comes from within. To cultivate joy, be mindful of the influences around you. Avoid negative conversations and distance yourself from gloomy individuals. Give joy the chance to flourish within your soul.

Relaxation
We’re adding relaxation to this list because self-care is essential to the pursuit of happiness. Naturally, we recommend using one of our Bath Bombs or Bath Powders to enhance your bath time, bringing a sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

The pursuit and attainment of happiness is within reach. As you celebrate Independence Day, make an effort to find the happiness you deserve.
