Welcome to The Happiness Journal and welcome to the lovely Lydia from Lydia’s Lifestyle.

Hey Lydia, why don’t you start by introducing yourself?

My name is Lydia and I’m a college student from Chicago, IL (USA)! I have a lifestyle and travel blog called and I am incredibly thankful to be a part of the blogging community.

Where is your happy place? And why?

Coffeeshops are my favourite happy places. When I discover a new coffeeshop and spend a few hours sipping a latte, working on my blog, and people watching I feel peaceful. There is something special about being in a cozy environment with a community of people of all different ages, careers, and backgrounds. I always feel welcomed into the mix of regulars and first-time visitors and with that feeling comes happiness. It’s the feeling of being a part of something bigger than myself.

What’s your feel good song? And why?

My favourite feel good song is ‘T-Shirt Weather’ by Circa Waves. I love listening to music so whenever I’m having a down day, I play this song on repeat! It’s upbeat with chill vibes and it reminds me of a perfect summer day.

And before you go,  if you had to give any advice to someone about achieving happiness, what would it be?

If I had to give someone advice about achieving happiness I would tell them to remember that it is a process. It is not a goal that’s achieved overnight and it’s okay to have down days. For the first couple weeks you embark on the happiness journey, maybe make it a goal to listen to inspirational music in the morning and then the next couple weeks add another goal to the music such as journaling about the positive aspects of each day. Don’t be afraid to have down days and remember that a down day does not equal failure.
