Happymoon. Noun. What one does, just for themselves, to reconnect with their inner peace, nurture themselves, and make themselves happy. It mirrors the intimate sentiment of the word from which it is derived, “honeymoon,” in that it is specific and unique to an individual.
Implicit in the notion of a happymoon is the idea that happiness is a choice that one makes by seeking out and doing that which makes him or her happy, or perhaps by just consciously, and very deliberately, devoting time and mental energy to enjoying the blessings and good fortune that one already has.
See also: “find one’s happy place”, “tend one’s own garden”, “take time for oneself” and “do what makes one happy”.
Example: “I’ve had no time for myself this week, so this weekend I’m going to take a happymoon by spending the day at the spa, then hanging out with my girlfriends.”
Can also be used as a verb. Example: “Sorry, boss, I’d love to spend all weekend working on this project, but I’m happymooning with my kids at the beach.”
