Watching sunrises and sunsets, especially while traveling. Swimming, running, and physical activity in general. Finding books that you fall in love with, now I'm not a big book reader but finding those books you get lost in is one of the best things ever. Cooking and baking with whatever you have (I'm not a recipe follower). And last but not least, relaxing with some music on.
