    Something that makes the day not good, but better. Takes some of the edge of it, I guess. I'm starting a blog (In Norwegian), and I wantas a category" _of the day" along with "trigger of the day". And yes, an English word, of course. I'm not expecting you to learn a new language for this. So, any good words? I thought of "Mellower", but it just sounded wrong.

    I couldn't think of a word to add, but I think solace is a really good one!

    I think I'll go for solace. Even thought "Dagens Solace" might sound a bit weird. Quantum of Solace, maybe? Thanks for the suggestions!

    How about: benefit, blessing, windfall, comfort, good fortune, good luck, good cheer?

    A comfort.
    A reward
    A pleasure
    A hug
    A chocolate bar
    A walk in the park XD

    I agree solace is the best IMO :)

    I actually changed it to Opptur. Don't know what the translation of that would be.

    I always liked "Carpe Diem" to help me take advantage of the day, but that is a saying, not a word.

    I would say "distraction".
    To "trigger" means to make you negatively or however aware of something. It's a scientific word, saying for example that sometings "triggers" headaches, negative or positive thoughts, whatever.
    So a trigger focuses a person or situation on something or induces something.
    A "distraction" takes focus on something away.

    Of course, this isn't about something bright in the day, but there are a lot of other ideas here on this ;-).
