If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Eight-year-old Toby, without hesitation, answered “Sushi”. The grown-ups around the supper table laughed— although a few non-sushi-lovers groaned.

Have you thought about your favourite things lately? We all have them but, perhaps as we leave childhood behind, we tend not to think of them very often. Usually, the easiest question to answer is ‘what’s your favouite colour?’ as it’s reflected in your clothes and decor. Most people claim blue as their favourite colour and yellow scores lowest but, as we age, we increasingly dislike orange!

The most watched episode each year of The Oprah Winfrey Show is Oprah’s favourite things, a segment where Oprah shares her favourite things with the audience. People love to hear about things that others deem wonderful.

Thinking about our favourite things isn’t a frivolous pastime. It is a way of appreciating them  and people in your life and reminding yourself of things that bring you pleasure and joy. Reflecting on them can also be a pick-me-up.  “…when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favourite things, and then I don’t feel so bad.”

To help you along, consider your favourite:

  • movie
  • teacher
  • flower
  • drink on a cold, winter day
  • drink on a hot, summer day
  • place

So, if you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
