Eight Ways to Find Joy Within Your Day


From brand founders to our-inhouse team, we asked members of the Liberty community to share the daily rituals they lean on to spark happiness

By: Maddi John

When life gets busy, it's easy to forget to find the time to do the small practices that help calm the storm, and so we at Liberty want to remind you to first, take a breather and, second, find joy within in the little things in your day. From dog walks and outfit planning to watering plants and forest bathing, discover a few mood-boosting rituals to try when you need a dose of dopamine to brighten your day.

Anna de Lanoy Meijer and Nina Poot

Founders of Anna + Nina

At Anna + Nina we are all about finding joy in little things, it’s what the brand is all about. One of our favourite quotes is by Roald Dahl: ‘and above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely place. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.’

We find joy in finding magic in the ordinary, making the most of every moment. Dressing up our tables, picking our own flowers, dancing in our kitchens, real talks, good food, love songs, long walks and good books, we could go on forever!

I’ve always loved fragrance. It has the power to transport you to another time and place and is an instant pick-me-up. At the moment I’m finding joy in a bottle of I Am Verdant by Vyrao, a lush green scent infused with the powers of a hermica diamond (you’ll find one in every bottle).

The first thing I do is ‘Forest Bathing’. Despite the name, it’s nothing to do with bathing but instead means to ‘bathe’ in the trees with my dog on a Saturday or Sunday. I don’t work on the weekends, I walk my dog for two or three hours in the forest – it’s my favourite. Is there anything better than getting home from a cold walk, making a cup of tea, running the bath, getting your kindle and soaking in the bathtub? I like to put Mirror Water Smooth Body Oil in the bath as well, it’s really hydrating.

Small rituals are essential for me to unwind; I intentionally carve out time to take a few deep breaths, light a scented candle, and curl up with a book. I'm currently flicking through The Five Orders of Architecture searching for new motifs and ideas to incorporate into my next collection; this helps me relax and fuels my creativity.

I always make sure to carve out time to walk my dog, Indie, every day - not only for my own pleasure – fresh air, no tech, clear headspace – but for hers too. Bonus points if there is a takeaway coffee shop en route…

I find joy every day in my plants. I have an amaryllis that just bloomed, and tending to it and watching it grow has been a real highlight of my mornings. Feeling responsible for nurturing this beauty to life is a lot like the creative process. A little every day and boom, this insane flower pops out. The payoff is pretty great.

My everyday ritual is spraying my favourite scent. I love the power of fragrance - transporting me to a memory or a place in time. It conveys an expression of my personality, becoming a reflection of my mood and allows me to re-centre and focus. It's a hug in a bottle.

I am a woman of rituals - they keep me sane. I love having a cup of tea from my favourite mug every day – Exquisite is the collection. I prescribe to a walk in the fresh air every day regardless of the weather. However, my favourite ritual of all is to kiss my son and tell him how much I love him.
