Secure some good karma…
It’s been proven that doing good deeds not only improves the value of life, but it also releases endorphins that make us feel good about ourselves. Something as simple as giving a compliment has the ability to affect the receiver in a really positive way – just think, you could turn their whole day around! Not only that, seeing a positive reaction also makes you feel generous and giving and instils some feel-good emotion into you as well!
So why not try taking the advice of my ex-boyfriend’s gorgeous mother and do one good deed everyday? She guarantees it’ll make you feel instantly great and will also ensure some good karma comes your way.
It can be as simple as lending a hand to someone struggling with their shopping. I once saw a struggling busker spill his coffee as he attempted to balance it on his guitar. I rushed over and said I’d love to replace it for him as I’d really enjoyed his music. When I came back with a fresh coffee, he looked me right in eye and said, ‘thank you. You have just restored my faith in humanity.” I don’t think any compliment has ever meant so much.
Smiling is also a really great way to lift your mood. When you’re feeling angry or frustrated, just smile and think of something that makes you truly happy and I bet you’ll feel that little better in an instant.
