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.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
