Little Things Everyone Can Do Every Day Easily To Spread Love

Little Things Everyone Can Do Every Day Easily To Spread Love

There is nothing quite like love. It makes us feel happy and appreciated, and most of us would like a little more love in our lives. But how can you make the world a more loving place?

It only takes one small act to share feelings of love and kindness. Check out 15 little things that you can do every day to help spread love and joy.

1. Mentor someone

Do you have a skill that you can share with others? Volunteering as a mentor for someone gives them the chance to improve their skills, which could help their career or benefit them in other ways. From business to baking, there are lots of things people would like to learn about.

2. Send fun texts to your loved ones

Take a few minutes each day to send your friends a funny text or picture. It will put a smile on their face, and they may send it on to other people, spreading more love and laughter.

3. Do one little act of kindness every day

You could smile at a stranger, hold a door open for someone or help someone with heavy bags. It only takes a few seconds to do so, but the other person will appreciate your gesture – and it will probably put them in a much better mood!

4. Spread positive gossip

So many conversations are based around nasty, mean gossip. Try switching to a more positive angle and you will notice more love and happiness in your life – and you won’t upset anyone if they find out what you said!

5. Try to be less judgemental

No one likes to be judged by others, and there is very little gain from being judgmental. You will hold less anger if you are non-judgmental and open-minded – and you will be nicer to be around.

6. Be kind to the people you dislike

If you want to make the world a more loving place, it is important to stop focusing on your anger and dislikes. Don’t hold grudges or feel resentment towards the people you dislike; instead wish them well while getting on with your own life.

7. Help a friend out

Do you have any friends who you could help? From babysitting to giving a friend a lift, there are lots of simple ways to show your friends that you care about them.

8. Send your long-distance friends pictures of you all together

Share pictures with your friends who live far away of you together to remember happy memories. It will help you to appreciate each other even when you are not together.

9. Give to charity

Volunteering is a great way to share love with the world. If you don’t have time to volunteer, you can donate money, clothes, shoes, food or books to many charities to share your wealth with others.

10. Hug your loved ones

Sometimes it is easier to show love and affection without using words. If you have a friend or a family member who is feeling down or stressed, give them a big hug to show your support.

11. Buy someone a coffee

Next time you are in your local coffee shop, consider buying someone else a coffee too to spread love and generosity. It is relatively inexpensive, and the other person will be touched by your kind gesture.

12. Compliment others

Everyone likes to feel good about themselves. Try to give someone a genuine compliment every day to spread love and happiness.

13. Use your social media page to help others to feel positive

Make your social media page a friendly place by posting cute pictures, funny videos and inspirational quotes. This will help to cheer up everyone else’s feed – and you don’t even need to leave your bed to do this one!

14. Thank your server when you buy something

Often people who work in customer service roles feel under-appreciated. Show servers that you notice their hard work by thanking them for their time, and they will always look forward to seeing you again.

15. Be polite

Manners may be less important in today’s world, but most people still appreciate being treated with respect. Simply saying “please” and “thank you” can make someone else feel appreciated and loved.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
