Traditionally, happy hour is slated for 5 PM. We’ve all heard the slogan, it’s 5 O’clock somewhere. We look forward to happy hour, a time to relax, unwind and socialize.
A little side note here: “ironically, you can thank prohibition for the boozy practice as we know it today and the U.S. Navy for the upbeat name. The first documented “happy hours” in the United States were held by the Navy as early as 1914 — but they had very little to do with alcohol.” It took place for the navy to give them a break from boredom at sea. It was their weekly entertainment, something to look forward to. -quoted from Huffington post
For me, Happy Hour begins at 5 AM, and it does not involve alcohol either haha. I look forward to stepping outside and looking up at the sky, checking out the constellations and the amaZing moon when present.
I begin with a salutation, set an intention, which sets the tone for a great day. As soon as my peepers open up, I am happy, that is my ‘happy hour’ I am grateful for another day. I feel great.
Today, make space for a personal ‘happy hour’. Your inner compass knows the time!
What is your happy hour? We all have one and the good news is you can set the time you feel brings you, your ‘happy hour.’ If you don’t have a so-called happy hour, create one for yourself, it will give you something to look forward to.
