There are many recommendations for how to improve your level of happiness. I think one easy one is simply to be kind to someone else. Sometimes it takes just the smallest gesture, like holding open a door, giving up your seat on the subway or bus, letting someone with a few items at the checkout get ahead of you if you have a cart full, picking up something that’s fallen for someone whose arms are full. These are really just a few.
I’d like to think that I’m helping to raise the level of civility in society today, which is sorely in need of it.
The next time you do something, just spend an extra second thinking about how the ‘thank you’ of the person you helped made you feel. Nice, huh?
