If you haven’t already downloaded—or at least heard of—this game, then we can only assume you’ve been living under a rock. This game is where you can live out the fantasy of actually owning property in this day and age; Plus, the cute graphics stay true to the name “Adorable Home.” Prepare bento boxes for your partner, take care of your pets, and redecorate your house however you like!

Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector

We couldn’t make this list without including the OG adorable game that everybody had on their phones at one point. Neko means “cat” while atsume refers to “to gather” in Japanese, so the name itself is pretty self-explanatory. You play the game by taking care of the cats that show up in your yard; the more areas you have (and better food, toys, etc.) the more cats you will attract. Whether you love cats IRL or not, Neko Atsume’s felines are too cute to resist—and they’re almost always camera-ready!

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

Animal Restaurant

In Animal Restaurant, you play a down-on-its-luck kitty that gets hired to manage a restaurant in the woods. Unlike other high-stakes restaurant games, you can play this one at your own pace. You can decide when to call on customers—otherwise only around one or two will come in, and there are about 140 different animals depending on your level. The gameplay is really more about growing the restaurant as slowly, or as quickly as you like. The cute graphics and yummy food items are a plus, too.

Food Truck Pup: Cooking Chef

If the fact that this adorable pixel game lets you play as a Shiba Inu trying to make it big in the food truck world by cooking delicious-sounding crepes isn’t enough to get you playing, then we don’t know what will. This expansive game will let you do anything from cooking, handling the food truck, dressing up the pixel dogs (there’s more than one breed!), gather ingredients and even franchise out your business. The gameplay isn’t too taxing either, so your brain cells can really enjoy helping this pupper grow into the Chef Doge it’s meant to be.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

Tsuki Adventure

This story-driven game isn’t as interactive as others, so it really lets you just step back and enjoy as Tsuki the rabbit goes off exploring this small, Japanese town in the countryside. The story goes that Tsuki was a perpetually stressed salary worker (sound familiar?) who decided to leave everything and move to his grandfather’s old carrot farm. With this slow lifestyle, you help Tsuki harvest the carrots while also getting to explore the countryside. It’s a peaceful game with lovely graphics, and a nice reminder to take a breather once in a while, just as Tsuki does.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Furistas Cat Café – Cuddle Cute Kittens

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

A couple of you may have already jumped at the phrase “cuddle cute kittens,” but this game offers even more fun than just that. In this game, you take care of an adorable and fully customizable little cat café full of different kinds of felines. The best part is that you act as a matchmaker for the cats—most of which were rescued—and your guests, finding them forever homes.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Showa Candy Shop 3: Grandma’s Purring Postmaster

Join this sweet old granny as she takes care of her little candy shop in a small Japanese town. This game is all about nostalgia and letting granny’s story shine through. You can help her stock up sweets in her shop, collect different kinds of Japanese treats, and meet all kinds of customers. It’s the third version of the popular game, proving that people just can’t get enough of this heartwarming tale.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Sailor Cats

Join a bunch of super cute kittens on a worldwide adventure in this game! It’s a simple enough collecting game, but you can help the cats get bigger and bigger fish (and other fun collectibles) while their shop grows and you enter cool new islands. You can also dress up your cats, which is always a big plus, TBH. There are also relics based on actual historical objects that you can read up on so you can even learn as you play.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Tabikaeru

Disclaimer: This popular game from the same company behind Neko Atsume is entirely in Japanese. But Tabikaeru (which can be translated to “Journey Frog”) has gathered enough of a following worldwide that there are dozens of English guides online—thanks to its easygoing gameplay and adorable graphics. The instructions are simple enough: You take care of a little frog by harvesting clovers (the game’s currency) and preparing a bag for it to take on its journeys. Most of the time the little frog is not at home, but the mementos it sends back are a cool reminder of the trips you yourself ought to take.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Purrfect Spirits

We don’t know what it is about cats but it seems people can’t get enough of cat-centric games. In Purrfecr Spirits, you play a ghost that has nothing left to do with its time but take care of the cats that visit your house. The felines pay you back with money that you can use—to buy more fun stuff for more cats, because what else would you want to do? The game even treats you to adorable cut scenes of the ghost playing with the cats.

"The paradoxical idea of attaining a happier life and how to withstand these beliefs."

The Revolting Truth About Happiness by Theserenefae

If people ask you about your vision of a happier life we automatically envision ourselves having more money, true love, a better job, Instagram-worthy vacations, etc. But let me break this to you this, According to Dr. Laurie Santos, Professor of Psychology at Yale University and the voice behind The Happiness Lab podcast, "Most of the goals we think would make us happy do not really make us happy." And why is that? Simple, being happy is all in our minds. The human mind ploys us with these lenses on how we envision ourselves and our lives to be happy. The perception of "having" or "gaining" is the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. So how can we really be "happy"?

• Seek happiness inside you. This is a quintessential reason for our vision of happiness: misconceptions about having a lot of money would make me happy; owning this and that would make me happy; entering a relationship would make me happy. This is not the case, if you want to be truly happy with your relationship, you have to be already happy on your own. If you want satisfaction from others, you have to be satisfied with yourself. And so on.

• Fill that hole righteously We all have that tiny hole inside our hearts, tampering it with temporary band-aids. Fill this hole with purpose. Have you ever heard about The Three "M's"— Master, Mission, and Mate? Define who will be your Master, is it God? If that's so, your Mission could be following his words and will. Mate would be the last for they will be the best companion to fulfill your mission. Now hear me out, it is important to do this accordingly. We often times jumble it or invert it which can lead to failures.

• Give gifts to others. The wonderful grace in giving. There’s nothing like the rush of pure joy when you get a chance to give. However, this may not be something that we're used to. But apparently, openhandedness is our soul's true shape. As Eugene Peterson put it, "Giving is what we do best. It is the air into which we were born." This doesn't necessarily mean we have to give away our stuff but we can also present love, kindness, gratefulness, etc. in our own simplest ways to anyone such as giving time, encouragement, helping hand, or even forgiveness. Try giving and you'll receive inconceivable gifts in return.

• Savor moments. Savoring deeply intensifies our positive emotions while doing something that we love the most by simply stepping outside of the experience to review and appreciate the moment. You can practice this by having a delicious meal, reading a good book, or any activity that you enjoy and love. It can also be enhanced by sharing these experiences with others, appreciating such amazing moments, or staying present the entire time.

• Choose to Love Deeper Today's society relentlessly pressures all of us to have this "perfect" lifestyle such as pursuing careers that drain you, finding value through virtual world and purchases, letting achievements become your whole identity, and yet after all that you still feel empty and failure inside. Consumption is just skin deep—a shallow perception of happiness. Deep life brings the best out of us and others. It is about nourishing what you already have, focusing on the relationships than material wealth, becoming vulnerable at times, and being self-aware.

• Understand that Sufferings and Pain are part of Human Being. Always remember that loneliness and sufferings are inevitable. That is completely how life goes. You may be happy for a moment or a month but sooner or later great tribulation will start to kick in. Combat despair with graciousness. Count all the blessings that you have (and will have in near future, claim it!) by writing it down on a piece of paper or typing on your phone. Viola! an instant boost for happiness. We all know the fact that this superficial happiness won't work, but why do I keep on wanting? I already have all this wisdom about how to be happy for ages, but why can't I apply it to my own life?

First, you have to understand that simply knowing doesn't change your behavior. Care to realize that all the tips that I have mentioned are all verbs? Because at the end of the day, it is all about how you choose to be happy and initiate actions towards success. Know, reflect, visualize, believe, and do something about it. All of these are Actions! This is the secret of all the happiest and most influential people in the world—actions. Furthermore, do know that some of these tips do not work instantly most of the time. It requires a lot of time, motivation, consistency, and effort. I do know it's easier said than done. Take each of them slowly, one step at a time.

If it wasn’t for pain, I wouldn’t be alive. It may sound contradictory, but it’s true. Pain reminds me that I can feel, along with other emotions. Pain reminds me that I can heal, just like how I did in the past. Pain reminds me that I am strong and I can do better. It reminds me that life can be bitter, and it is up to us to make it a little sweeter (or saltier, depending on what the person wants).

With this epiphany, I take pain in a positive light. It’s normal that it can break me and make me want to stay in bed all day, but having someone or something remind me that there is hope is enough. It’s normal that I cry my heart out, but it’s important to remember that there’s a calm after the storm. If it wasn’t for pain, I wouldn’t be who I am now. It has shaped me and how I look at things. It has changed the way I approach circumstances that can challenge me and my beliefs.

Pain, back then, made me cower in the dark. Pain used to be my biggest fear, and I used to do my best to avoid pain. However, I realized that avoiding pain is like avoiding life. Because of how I wanted to protect myself, I closed myself off to people and opportunities. I used to tell myself that “this will end badly”, or “this is going to hurt in the end”. I always focused on how much pain I might endure in the end that I forgot to enjoy the process.

It’s inevitable, you see? Endings, most of the time, may hurt. It’s natural for us to grow attached to someone or something, and their disappearance might bring us a lot of pain. However, one should always remember that the pain is a reminder of how close you became, how many memories you had. If it wasn’t for pain, life would be pointless. If it wasn’t for pain, we would be nothing.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
