3 Ways to Spread Joy to Friends & Family

Thursday, August 10, 2017
In today's fast-paced society, it can be easy to focus on finding a little joy for yourself, but forgetting to share it with others. Taking time to show the people you love that you care about them can brighten their day and yours. Here are three easy ways to spread joy.

1. Call a friend or relative just to talk

We may all carry around smartphones, but how many of us use them to talk? Between email, texting, and social media, many people claim they're too busy to talk, even when they're spending hours staring at screens.

Call someone you love just to say hello. Hearing your voice will brighten their day - and who doesn't like to hear you were thinking about them?

2. Spread smiles

Smiling at someone can have a big impact - a smile instantly brightens someone's day. It doesn't take more then a second to smile, plus it makes you feel good.

Pass on a meaningful compliment while you're at it. Complimenting someone boosts their mood and makes them feel like they were noticed. Many people react to a compliment by complimenting someone else, so you could spread a wave of positive feelings.

3. Bring Them a Care Package

When you know someone is having a hard time, or when you want to show extra love, try a care package. You might give them gift cards, movies, candy, or even home-cooked meals. There are endless ideas for packages that brighten someone's day. Think about what you could give a relative or friend right now that they would appreciate, and then box it up in a cheery manner.

Positivity is contagious. When you take time out of your day to brighten someone else's day, you'll feel great.
