Give someone a genuine compliment
A simple compliment can go a long way for a person, and even make their day. Find something a bit unexpected, like great taste in music rather than looks.
Pay it forward
If a friend or stranger spreads a bit of positivity to you then in some way pay it forward. This can be as simple as paying for the person behind you in the drive-thru line!
Smile at people you pass in the street or other shoppers you pass in the grocery store. Smiling can help put you and the people around you in a much more positive mood.
Help someone out in a practical way
Helping someone out in a practical, tangible way is a great way to show kindness. So next time you get the chance give your friend a ride home or lend them hand when they need it.
Play positive music
Uplifting music is of course a great way to boost your own mood. You can do the same for people around you. Put on a really positive song when you are hanging out with friends or send them an uplifting playlist on Spotify or a link to a video on Youtube.
Express your gratitude
Showing the people around you that you appreciate them being there is another great way to spread positivity. Think about those who are important to you in your life and let them know you’re grateful!
Replace the unconstructive criticism
Try encouragement instead of excessive criticism. It helps people to both raise their self-esteem and improve. And it will make things more fun and more light-hearted in the long run.
Recall how other people’s kindness made you feel
Sit down for a few minutes and try to recall a time when another persons’ kindness really touched you and helped you out. Think about how you can do those very same things for someone in your life.
