5 ways to improve the world, right now.
We can all make the world a better place. We all have the power to do it and it can be done in the most simple of ways. Here are 5 things you can do right this second to make the world just that little bit more manageable for everyone:
#1 – Smile
Smiling just makes the world seem better, even if you’re convinced it’s not. It cures bad moods, it’s changes your perspective on things and it’s highly infectious to other people. Turn that frown upside down and smile.
#2 – Compliment Someone
Just downright go and make someones day. Tell them that their hair looks good, that their eyes twinkle in the moonlight or that their new workout regiment makes their booty look fabulous.
No-one has ever come home from a day at the office and complained that they’ve been complimented too much, ever, in the history of the world. Go ahead and do it, it could be the one thing that person wants to hear.
#3 – Help a stranger
This probably takes the most guts of all, but it outright the most rewarding for all parties involved.
Hold open a door, lift the heavy box, Pull over and help that old lady change her tyre, go out of your way to drop someone at home to save them the 45 minute walk, pay for someone’s bus fare because they’re stuck in the wrong city or if you want to go all the way you could even pay someones parking fine.
If Karma is real, you’re shooing to get some good feedback from the world in the future.
#4 – Surprise Someone
Surprises are a brilliant way of reminding someone you do think about them, and the look on their face is worth every single ounce of effort it takes.
Pick up some flowers for your partner on the way home from work, buy a box of chocolate, get the kids a new toy, decide against painting the garage this weekend and go and do something fun. Heck, even get the dog a new bag of treats and watch his tail wag furiously. You could turn someone’s day right around.
#5 – Be Yourself
Put the proverbial mask down. Step back from behind the cardboard cut out of the person you pretend to be and just be yourself. Be genuine act how you want to act, do what you want to do and feel how you want to feel. You may not be totally confident in being the real you, but the world would be a lot better place if we all managed to be completely genuine with one another.
Have a good weekend,
