Have you heard of the saying “a little kindness makes the world go round?” By showing kindness, it can increase one’s well-being and contributes to good relationships as well.

You do not have to go out of your way to show kindness. It can be as simple as complimenting your friend’s outfit and making them feel better, or offering help to someone in need.

Showing gratitude

How many of us actually say “thank you” to our loved ones? Sometimes, the simplest things are the hardest to say. We often take little things for granted and overlook that these little things are worth being grateful for.

People who express their gratitude for each other tend to be more willing to forgive others and less narcissistic.

To start off, you can keep a gratitude journal and write five things you are grateful for each day! No matter how small it is, showing your gratitude can make you happier.

Savouring means that we attempt to fully feel, enjoy, and extend our positive experiences.

Simply put, it means to live in the moment and enjoy the happy feelings that you are currently experiencing.

You can also savour past events by reminiscing on the happy things that you experienced before in life.  Habitual’ savorers are more likely to maintain a happy mood in the absence of positive life events, compared to people who do not savour positive daily events.

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

It can help to reduce stress and anxiety, improves attention, and promotes self-regulation.

An activity which you can do is meditation.

Here are also some apps that help to track your mindfulness:
