Sometimes it's the little things in life that make us the happiest. Four-year-old Iris has an adorable obsession with CVS Pharmacy that led to the birthday party of her dreams. TODAY shows just how excited she was (cue the AWWs). Whether it's taking time off to plan the perfect birthday party, build a treehouse, or take a trip, it's important to be there for your kids and build your family story.

Good work/life balance is about how you show up, not just if you do. In Adam Fraiser's TEDx talk he shares a three-step formula for how to disconnect your office and home mindsets.

Jet Blue's new campaign has inspired customers and communities to take a break from the busyness of life. The ads persuade the audience to ask themselves whether or not humankind is becoming "HumanKinda." Is the short film convincing enough to make you slow down and #TakeADay?
