As a life and wellness coach, I encourage folks to follow their instincts, sit quietly for a few moments a day, and write down their positive future goals as if they are happening now.
To be positive and happy, we have to practice using that muscle. Simple strategies for kindness which create more positive energy all around us are contagious! I think a smile at a stranger while walking throughout the day can change our outlook for the day. Daily practice of the smile can lead to wonderful experiences. Trust me. We are giving unconditionally and usually the people smile back! Saying thank you often is a kindness strategy that is feel good too. Opening the door for others and giving up a seat for the ill or physically challenged person is a kind deed that will be small but noticed by the “universe.”
Handwriting a thank you card instead of an email or phone call is a kindness that is old fashioned but people are very grateful for.
When I do something nice for someone else my day flows a little better. This is a great way to begin 2018.
I hope this helps.
