Joy is contagious!
I provide a positive role model for my children. They feel more secure and confident when I am peaceful and content. I teach them how to handle challenges and entertain themselves.
I deepen my relationship with my partner. I let go of judgements. I show my gratitude and appreciation. I try to make their life easier by picking up their dry cleaning or letting them sleep in.
I lighten the mood at work. I find something funny in difficult situations. I resolve conflicts gently and respectfully. I bring in a box of donuts or rubber stress balls.
I build a sense of community. I greet my neighbors and wish them a pleasant day. I do favors without expecting anything in return. I volunteer at local charities and participate in neighborhood associations.
I make routine activities more fun. I give sincere compliments to strangers. I initiate some small talk if others are receptive. I listen attentively to what they have to say.
I practice small acts of kindness. I hold doors and offer to help tourists take group photos. I feed birds and post supportive comments online.
I create pleasant surprises. I donate socks to nursing homes and homeless shelters. I send anonymous gift subscriptions to my family and friends. I let someone else have the closest parking spot.
Today, I spread positivity. I increase my happiness by sharing it with others. I make my world a warmer and friendlier place to live.
- Why is happiness a spiritual experience?
- How does being kind to myself help me to be kinder to others?
- How do I feel when someone smiles at me?
