Small Acts of Kindness

Many people do not realize how significant small acts of kindness can be for both the person doing and receiving the act. Small acts of kindness, if genuinely performed, can have a lasting impact on one's happiness.

Think about it. How do you feel when someone, let's say, opens the door for you, or greets you in the morning with a complimentary smile. These small acts lay the foundation for the rest of your day and ultimately shape your mental well-being. It is crucial to understand that these acts benefit the person performing them just as much.

By incorporating small acts of kindness in your life, you will shape yourself as a person. You will learn that life is not a game of survival-of-the-fittest, despite all the things in life that try to convince you so.  Happiness does not come at the expense of others; it is created.

To take advantage of this knowledge, you should perform small acts of kindness whenever possible and make this world a happier place for everyone to live in.

Give an Unexpected Gift

Give an unexpected gift. Think of a family member or a friend that you treasure in your heart and buy or make a small gift for that person. The gift should be small; it's inner worth is what's important. Don't forget to make sure the gift is special.

There's only one thing that would be better than making yourself happy, and that is making somebody else happy. Although you are not the one receiving  a gift, you'll know the true reward when you see the recipient's smile.

Thank Yourself

Instead of thanking others for once, thank yourself. Thank yourself for working hard and for being the best you can be. Part in being happy is to recognize all that you have done to become the person you are today. Give yourself a strong pat on the back.
