Cookie dough is one thing that makes people feel happy. It is nostalgic and evokes fun memories of childhood, often simpler, carefree times. Our mission is to bring people closer to happiness so while we will continue to make premium, all natural and delicious cookie dough, we also want to connect with you in other ways that will bring you more happiness. So lets dig in to the topic of Gratitude, it is the perfect time of year to be thinking about this if we do say so ourselves.
The Dalai Lama famously said, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” The same rings true for generosity!
Here’s how to use your 5 senses to get in a better mood fast.
Pump up the jams
Ok, this is a gimme. But we dare you to throw on Chumbawumba’s Tubthumping and not at least feel the urge to start shaking what your mama gave you. This song is especially useful if someone bummed you out since the first (and pretty much only) lyric is "I get knocked down…but I get up again! You're never going to keep me down!" When you listen to upbeat music, your brain produces serotonin and dopamine, two naturally occurring chemicals that can pretty much instantly lift your spirits. So even if you feel like typing “Sad Emo Mix” into Spotify, force yourself to try “Songs to Sing in the Shower” instead and give yourself 15 minutes to get into the groove.
